Castlemain was first brought in to conduct a feasibility study on whether a commercial building would be financially viable on a small site on a Southern Vancouver Island reserve. We discovered that while a building was physically feasible, there remained commercial uncertainty. In the process of assessing the Nation’s comfort with this uncertainty, a discussion emerged regarding a community building. This discussion turned into an excited visioning session where the combination of a gymnasium, community store, meeting rooms and more came to life.
Our role was to deliver on these dreams. By having a full and clear understanding of the many roles required to bring a project to completion, Castlemain served as the owner’s representatives in managing the process (and more than 20 consultants and contractors) on behalf of the First Nation, from concept to completion: all on-time and under-budget.
