Take a look at what just a few of our clients say about their experience working with Omicron.
“The fact that there have been so few changes [from design phase to construction] is in my view a testament to the comprehensive functional programming, very good design work, and detailed design development review process.
The procurement process was handled well, good trades selected, good prices obtained, good quality workmanship exhibited, good co-operation with the Independent Testing Agencies that BC Hydro engaged…. It’s a pleasure to work with individuals of your calibre and capability.”
Sol Friedman – Former Project Manager, BC Hydro
Port Alberni Operations Facility VIEW THE PROJECT
“The project faced numerous challenges, which Omicron was able to address and mitigate through their design and construction expertise, including a compressed schedule, the need for major environmental enhancements to an industrial site and no flexibility to increase the budget. Omicron met and exceeded all of the project challenges and goals, and the facility was operational on schedule in time for the Winter Olympic Games.”

“Council recently received the final accounting for this project and remarkably, it was accomplished slightly under budget. This magnificent $8.2 million building with significant environmentally responsible features was also built on time …
West Kelowna Council and the residents of this community can be proud of this excellent show piece, the first capital project in this new municipality …
I am happy to note the Westbank and District Chamber of Commerce recently awarded the West Kelowna RCMP Detachment with a Business Beatification Award for its attractive exterior and landscaping.
Council could not be happier with the results of your months of hard work. On behalf of the residents of West Kelowna, I thank you.”

Home Depot Canada
“Omicron has been a true partner, acting as the lead consultant on all 46 stores Home Depot of Canada has opened in western Canada over the past 12 years. Of particular importance, Omicron’s efforts as site development co-originator (co-ordination and directing the efforts of the broader consulting team on any given project, due diligence and obtaining municipal approvals such as rezoning, development permits, building permit etc.) were extremely effective in that they allowed Home Depot to develop and execute an aggressive new store opening program that could be delivered on a timely and cost effective basis.”

Stratford Hall – International Baccalaureate School
“We are very proud of our new facility, and we are pleased to have it stand for design and architecture awards.
Our challenge was to create a learning environment for students that deviated from the traditional insular nature of classrooms and corridors … Omicron architect Kevin Hanvey and his creative team very quickly understood our desire for a unique layout, and relatively quickly came to us with some creative options. The design process was collaborative and adaptive.
It was evident throughout construction that the site workers felt a special pride in the building, and the site supervisors found that technical design questions were immediately answered because everything was coordinated in-house. In fact, the site supervisor was brought into the process during the design phase so that he could give input, and become thoroughly familiar with the project. All of this made for a smooth project that came in on time and on budget.
Kevin Hanvey and the team at Omicron deserve full credit for taking our rough ideas and making them real in a way that will sustain for decades. Colleagues who have visited have said, this is exactly what a place for 21st Century learning should look like.”
Dr. James McConnell – Head of School (Retired), Stratford Hall
