On behalf of the project team at Canadian Tire, I would like to congratulate the entire Panattoni team on your achievement of building the largest on-spec industrial development ever built in Canada, which deservingly was named “2005 Lease of the Year” by the trade association for industrial and commercial real estate agents.

Our experience with your team has been exceptional. We are very pleased with the new buildings we are leasing from your company. Your ability to deliver on time under very tight timelines and to our specifications has allowed us to easily transition from our old warehouse space into the new Airport Road warehouse space virtually without interruption to our business.

Your team was tireless in their efforts. The ability of the Panattoni Project Manager and his team to work collaboratively with out project team allowed the combined experience and talents of Panattoni and Canadian Tire to be reflected in a facility that has exceeded our initial expectations for utilization and operating expenses.

Canadian Tire has been involved in many construction projects over the years and we are very pleased with your company’s ability to deliver a high quality product to our specifications, on time and on budget.

We look forward to opportunities to work with Panattoni in the future.

John Salt
Divisional Vice-President, Distribution

I would like to thank Panattoni Development Company for the excellent job in completing our tenant improvements at our new Freeport Distribution Centre.

The construction and installation of our offices, battery charging area, radiant heating units and upgraded dock packages were all completed professionally and to our specifications, exactly in the timeline that was promised at the outset of the project during the lease negotiations.

During my site visits it was great to see that there was constant momentum and activity taking place which allowed me to feel confident that the project would be completed on schedule, even though I was not in Calgary to monitor the build-out on a day-to-day basis.

I have been involved in many projects over the years and I am very pleased with your group’s ability to provide a high quality product to our specifications on time and on budget.

I am happy to recommend your services to others.

Bernie Fried
Coca Cola Bottling Company
Facilities Manager Canada

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Panattoni Development Company for making the transition into our new Calgary facility such a success.

The scope and tight timelines of the project made it challenging and stressful, especially since we had a fast approaching drop-dead date to move out of our old facility.

Your team met those challenges and schedules with a high level of professionalism and competency, while still providing flexibility to the inevitable changes that arose during the project. The follow up with on-site construction issues were also resolved in a very timely manner which allowed for an overall smooth transition into our new space.

The project was completed on budget and on schedule, as outlined in the pre-construction period proving that your schedule assumptions were realistic and attainable, even though there was a lot of hard work and effort to meet the required milestone dates.

A major factor to the project’s success was your construction experience and service oriented attitude, which was also demonstrated by working with us to set up our warehouse area in conjunction with your tenant fit-out work.

Thanks again and we look forward to working together on future projects.
