Aspen Lakes West Build in Blackfalds
Phase II Aspen Lakes West
5616 Vista Trail
Our build project of two duplexes is well underway at Phase II Aspen Lakes in Blackfalds. Once completed, these duplex units will be home to The Carr's, The Drake's, The Baray's, and The Gauthier-Johanneson's.
On April 21 Habitat Red Deer broke ground on its 43rd, 44th, 45th, and 46th home build in Phase II at Aspen Lakes. It was a cool and windy day, but with partner families, Blackfalds town council and other community members in attendance we persevered and kicked off Habitat's newest build.
We hit the ground running in May! Official construction began at Phase II Aspen Lakes on May 9 with Marshall Construction. Parkland Geo also did our soil testing, and the site survey was completed by Snell & Oslund. At this time our foundation was poured, and our site services were completed by Atco Gas, Fortis Alberta, Shaw Cable, and Pass Electric.
In early June framing was able to commence on June 8th with Citadel Construction. Wolf Creek Building Supplies provided the lumber packages, and Timber Wolf Truss supplied our floor systems. We also hosted our first two TeamBUILD events of the summer with Team Dow and Team Gary Moe, and Eagle Builders sent out 30 volunteers on two different Saturdays. What an amazing community we have!
July was a very busy month at our build site! We hosted three TeamBUILD events (Team Southern Irrigation, Team Lacombe Ford, Team MNP), and two WomenBUILD events with Team Black Press Media and a few of our partner family ladies. Our construction supervisor Nate Crowe-Swords had the teams build deck packages, and framing also continued throughout July. Additionally, Bruin's Plumbing & Heating completed the ground work at the build site by the end of July.
