Indigo Robson Flagship Location

Building Type: Commercial Retail
Project Value: $5 Million
Contractor: Norson
Architects: Burdi Felik
Project Status: completed in 2018


MAKE Projects was engaged to provide Owner’s representation services to oversee Indigo’s flagship store on Robson Street.  As a flagship, this store involved more complex drywall and millwork detailing, and higher-end communications systems, than are typically found in a retail store.  With a demanding schedule of 3 months start to finish, MAKE and the construction team had to move quickly and implement fast-track strategies including, double-shifting, acceleration bonus clauses, twice-weekly Owner meetings, and micro-scheduling for fixture deliveries.  Indigo opened on time with what their operations team coined ‘the smoothest transition, from construction to operations, of any store across Canada.’
