Congratulations Chris Munro!

We are thrilled to announce the promotion of Chris Munro to Director of Construction for Weekes General Contracting. Chris joined our company nearly 8 years ago developing his skills and leadership capabilities over the passing years. He has played a key role by taking initiative and always remaining positive with an unfailing team spirit. Keep up the great work Chris!

We are days away from finishing the beautiful All Star Wings on College St. We’re waiting for final inspections to pass and then we will do the final clean up. The timing couldn’t be better as the students are gearing up to go back to school and will appreciate all of the flavour options this restaurant has to offer. Imagine mid-terms rolling around, getting together with classmates to study over a couple of pounds of delicious wings or blow off some steam with some friends. A great location with good food and a warm atmosphere. Stay-tuned for updates as the restaurants gets closer to opening. Guaranteed you’ll have to go early to save a table!

With a lot of the pipes and plumbing completed we’ll be able to start framing. As you can see a lot of the space has been divided with steel studs and once the drywall goes up the restaurant will start to feel like a restaurant. It’s hard to see now, but in a few more weeks counters and kitchen appliances will be installed and then we’ll really start to see the character of the space come alive.

After 7 weeks of construction, Filson is open and ready for business.  This is one store you won’t want to miss. With it’s rustic feel and earthy colour tones you’ll wonder if you’ve somehow stepped into a chalet high in the Alps instead of in a retail store in the heart of the city.

This is where quality workmanship and professional execution meet creative vision and inspiration. It takes both sets of skills to transfer a unique concept into reality and that’s exactly what we strive to do for our clients. Building a store is more than just walls, flooring, ceiling, and lights. It’s creating an experience that will make our clients’ customer’s want to come back again and again.

A&W Now Taking Shape

Now you can see the bones of the restaurant take shape. Soon the walls will take shape and we'll be able to see the restaurant form.

Cabinetry & Storage

Filson’s Is Taking Shape

Different display areas and storage spaces are being built in and as we continue to work the store will begin to look more like a store and some of its character will start to take shape. It's amazing what can be done to a space with a little vision and some great planning!
