Behind the Scenes

Saturday April 20, 2013

Since our last update most of our progress has been behind the scenes. The necessary permits have been applied for and most of them are now in hand except for the most important one - the building permit from the Township of Oro-Medonte. Dave, Hiedi and Tom have been investigating new and improved equipment such as: large vehicle hoists, pressure washers, safety equipment, air compressors, audio/visual equipment, and more.

Our new 2,500 sq. ft. Storage Facility is enclosed, the doors and windows are installed and the ground has been heated to remove the frost to prepare for the pouring of the floor which is scheduled to be completed this week (April 1st). The building will also accommodate our lawn & garden equipment. We have always considered the appearance of our 15 acres facility as important. Our Service Centre housed a storage bay to keep our lawn and garden equipment organized. After the fire, space for our operations was in scarce supply. We had no choice but to use every inch of our Service Centre. All of our lawn and garden equipment was placed in temporary storage and this storage bay was retooled to accommodate necessary appliances: electrical panels, hot water heater, washer/dryer, laundry sink plus a refrigerator for our staff. This space also doubles as our lunch room since we lost our original one in the fire.

Spring is fast approaching and we intend to do our best to maintain our premises. We expect that this will be a challenge considering the volume of commercial construction trucks and vehicles that we anticipate moving in and out of the property.

Thank you to our customers who have continued to support us during this experience. We have been fortunate and your loyalty is greatly appreciated. We will work as hard as we can for you.
