Greater Victoria recently had a period of high temperatures. These high temperatures often came with heat warnings. This extended heat wave affected the speed of completion of our masonry contracts.
Recently on Chek News, this is what one of our masons had to say about working in the heat.
Safety has always been of utmost importance to us, and we treat our employees like family. As the masons work on projects for weeks, heat exhaustion and heat strokes are of concern and can be fatal. Because of this, the masons need to take it slow and stay well hydrated. Additionally, they take time off in a shaded area to cool off. Despite this heat-induced slowdown, we pride ourselves in providing quality results.
Rob Tournour has many residential, commercial and community projects in Victoria. If you take a drive through downtown Victoria, you are likely to see one of our projects. Some of our more notable projects include:
- Patient care tower at Royal Jubilee Hospital
- Oak Bay Beach Hotel
- Union condo building in China Town
- Songhees Wellness Centre on Admirals Road
- The Empress Hotel
We also support many community projects in Victoria and abroad. Community projects include the work done by HeroWork in renovating charitable organizations.
At Rob Tournour, we are proud to be a family-owned business, supporting the community in which we work.
