Construction Progress: Headed for the Clouds

The construction progress is impressive in the month of July!


The bottom floors of the hotel are nearly complete—drywall, insulation, and bathroom and bedroom configurations are already in place.


We took the lift to the rooftop of the Civic Hotel and was greeted with the most breathtaking view in Surrey.


Decorating the top of the rooftop ceiling and on the walls are the signature guitar picks that help distinguish 3 Civic Plaza in Surrey City Centre. Finally, with first layer of waterproofing membrane installed, the hotel pool is taking shape.

Currently, we are pouring concrete on floor 36 and the vignette displays are nearly complete for approval. Soon, we will be able to get a taste of what the completed suites will look like upon completion.

Meet the Team: Blair Marriott

Blair Marriott - ITCMeet Blair Marriott, Senior Superintendent ITC Construction. With over 30 years of experience, Blair Marriott has served ITC for more than 50 high-rise projects and on many Century Group’s development projects, including Citypoint at Gateway SkyTrain station in North Surrey and here at 3 Civic Plaza. He actively manages all of the sub-trades and ensures the building stays on schedule.

Trained as a structural engineer at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, he decided early on that he preferred to work in construction over engineering, partly due to his father’s influence as a foreman contractor. His training serves him well — he is somewhat of a specialist with 3 Civic Plaza’s unique heating and cooling system, installing thermal breaks and reducing heat loss for the building.

Married for 40 years, with two lovely daughters, Blair loves to travel (particularly on cruises), ride motorcycles (Harley’s, of course) and play hockey in his free time. Blair has also entered and completed more than 30 triathlons. Born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Blair has worked in a number of cities, including Boston, New York, San Diego and Calgary, before settling in Vancouver.

Blair is currently looking forward to getting beyond the mechanical floor at 3 Civic Plaza so that he can get to that next milestone of building up one floor per week! So, every day you see the tower rising higher and higher, you have Blair to thank.

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
