Aberdeen Shopping Centre

Project Value: $65 Million
Contractor: Dominion Construction
Architects: Bing Thom Architects
Project Status: Completed in 2004

The Aberdeen Shopping Centre was designed by Bing Thom Architects and was one of the first BTA buildings to incorporate curved glass window walls and floating roof structures into retail design in Vancouver.  The complex includes over 80 commercial retail units, a grand open atrium with a 3-storey water feature and light show technologies.  Adjacent to the mall is a 4 storey parkade structure.

Constructed on Richmond’s alluvial soils, the building was preloaded and subsequently founded on over 300 concrete ‘franki’ piles.

Alan’s role was to oversee the day-to-day trade contract details and overall administration.  This was his first project after completing his engineering degree, and proved to be a high-pressure, fast-tracked learning experience.
