Fillmore Construction was awarded the LEED Silver Elder Care Centre project in the remote Alberta Town of Fort Chipewyan on a fixed price basis. This facility allows local seniors to live out their lives in their home town; previously they would have been transported to a facility in Edmonton or Calgary. The Fort Chipewyan Elder Care Centre was constructed jointly with the local native community. Fillmore Construction made every effort to engage and involve the local community. This facility boasts two bariatric units, high efficiency heating and water conservation systems, high-end millwork and flooring finishes, cedar ceilings, and an interior open flame fireplace centered in an authentic native Canadian teepee structure.
In my twenty-five years of experience with similar projects, and before that several years as a health facility chief executive officer, I have never worked with a construction firm that paid more attention to details than has Brent and his team.
