Through our history of successful projects in Jasper National Park, Johnston Builders was selected by Pursuit to undertake the construction of a new 88-suite hotel on Connaught Drive.
Located next to the existing Sawridge Inn and Conference Centre, the new 46,100 square foot hotel will feature an enclosed events pavilion, 80 kitchenette suites and two skybridges connecting the two wings of the hotel and dining facilities at the Sawridge.
With the lack of available affordable housing in Whitehorse, Challenge Cornerstone helps fill the housing need for those at risk of homelessness. In addition, the project provides housing for individuals with moderate disabilities and mental illnesses.
In total, the project will provide 53 suites for the Whitehorse housing market across the 6 stories and will have space for future retail and a deli.
Designed to replace the outdated community swimming pool originally built in 1984 this project will provide the community of Pelly Crossing with a new, modern swimming facility.
The facility design incorporates a Myrtha Pools system manufactured in Europe and an integrated residence for housing pool staff from outside of the community.
Outgrowing their current facility in Leduc, Caron Transport Ltd. contracted Johnston Builders to construct a new operations building. The new 15,900 square foot building will contain several offices as well as a dispatch area, six service bays, two 29 metre wash bays complete with aerial catwalks, and self contained chemical storage.
To meet the durability requirements of the client, a pre-cast concrete structure is being utilized. The project also includes development of the 7.7 acre lot and relocation of the existing tank farm.
Built to meet the needs of Watson Lake and the surrounding communities, the new Municipal Service Building will become the new home of the Watson Lake Fire Department and the town’s maintenance department.
With a total building area of 15,400 sq. ft., the fire and maintenance departments will each have a 4 bay shop with a centralized, shared office and training space.
