Construction Progress: Top Floor of Civic Hotel Complete

Leave a Comment

With 2016 upon us, it is a perfect time to acknowledge our accomplishments in 2015 and what we have to look forward to this year. The most exciting news? We will reach the top of the residential tower in October 2016.guitarpic

ITC are moving very quickly to keep us on schedule. The infographic above shows the projected progress of the building construction in each quarter. Once we have established ‘Tier 1’, the 15th Floor, the tower will rise at a rate of about one floor each week. Of course, it has taken some time to get here. While most people can see the signature ‘guitar pick’ windows continuing to take shape, there’s an amazing amount of work that’s been done inside the project that cannot be seen from the outside… the built-in local energy system and the three hoist elevators, for two examples.

It was a busy year… in 2015 we completed:

  • All 3 floors of Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s first urban campus (KPU Civic Plaza)
  • 8 of the 16 floors for Surrey’s first Marriott Autograph Collection hotel, including window-wall installation.
  • All 6 hotel amenity spaces, which includes the pre-function area, convention ballrooms and meeting rooms
  • Placing more than 50% of the total concrete to be used in the building, with the parkade finished earlier in the year

3 Civic Plaza is beginning to feel like the landmark we expect it to be, and every day brings us closer to Surrey’s vision for a vibrant, active downtown. To watch daily progress, check out our construction camera at:, or for a more artistic view follow us on
