Robson Square - Block 71, Domestic Water Re-Piping

Robson Square is a landmark civic center and public plaza of modernist concrete located in downtown Vancouver. It is also the site of the Provincial Law Courts.

Black & McDonald was the prime contractor to re-pipe the aging domestic water piping system serving the whole Block 71 building. Starting on level P2 and finishing on level 7 of the building, Black & McDonald maintained 100% service to the building during the day with all work taking place after hours and weekends.
