The Amazing Brentwood

Local 97 Helps Transform the Mountain Sky

The Amazing Brentwood is a massive 28-acre project located in Burnaby, British Columbia. The first phase of the project, Brentwood One, is a 63-story tower located next to the vital “SkyTrain,” an automated driverless light rapid transit system station, linking downtown Vancouver to the city of Richmond. It will establish a new one-acre public plaza that potentially could hold programmable activity and large-scale events. The plan includes twin 63-story towers, which could rival the height of some of downtown Vancouver’s tallest skyscrapers, which also flank the first phase. The lower seven stories will be used for commercial purposes and the remaining 53-stories for residential. 

The Brentwood Mall project is being worked under a project labour agreement, which will allow Local 97 (Vancouver, British Columbia) reinforcing ironworkers employed for Harris Rebar to be working for the next three years, making it one of the largest residential/commercial projects ever done in the greater Vancouver area.

Core Footing Project Statistics:
• 780 metric tonnes of reinforcing steel 
• 4.4 metres (14 ½ feet) thick at the center of the core 
• Over 3,500 cubic metres (4,578 cubic yards) of concrete
