In this case study, we will delve into our partnership with a client for an industrial development in Woodstock, Ontario, where our comprehensive approach and diligent project management played a pivotal role in ensuring a successful outcome.

Phase I: Providing Advisory and Representation Services

Our journey with this esteemed client began when we were initially retained for Phase I of their industrial development project in Woodstock. This phase involved the construction of an industrial building complete with office and manufacturing space. From the outset, our dedicated team at The GeoFocus Group worked closely with the client, understanding their vision, goals, and unique requirements.

We kicked off the project by conducting a thorough assessment of the site and collaborating with key stakeholders to develop a comprehensive strategy. Leveraging our deep industry knowledge and experience, we provided valuable insights and guidance to the client, ensuring that the project’s objectives were aligned with their long-term vision.

Phase II: Expanding Manufacturing Space

Building upon the success of Phase I, our partnership with the client continues with Phase II, which is currently in the course of construction at the earliest phases. This phase involves a significant expansion of approximately 70,000 square feet to the existing manufacturing space. The GeoFocus Group has been retained to provide comprehensive advisory and representation services throughout this critical stage.

Our involvement at the planning stages allowed us to seamlessly coordinate the site plan agreement/amendment process and streamline the consultation coordination for building permit submission and costing. By being an integral part of the early construction phases, we can closely monitor the project’s progress, address any challenges promptly, and ensure that the construction activities are executed to the highest standards of quality, safety, and efficiency.

In the case of this industrial development project, we continue to implement a range of strategies to safeguard the client’s investment and ensure a smooth construction process.
