The usual challenges were present, subfloor preparation, moisture testing, achieving acceptable site conditions and a pressing construction schedule. Timing became a significant issue as the schedule did not anticipate concrete subfloor dry times and the time to take proper moisture tests. Without the main heat on in the building the slab temperature was too cold, ambient relative humidity and temperature were not acceptable and so installation was delayed until correct conditions were achieved. The result..... the floor coverings were installed properly with warranties intact.
Wendy Peare of Capital Projects said that she found the Quality Assurance Program inspection service 'very beneficial' during the construction of the HOpe Centre Hospital in North Vancouver and would recommend the service for future projects.
