What We Offer
Property Solutions Simplified
York’s assets range from office buildings to retail space to industrial facilities to raw land. Because we own what we build and lease, our interests align with those of our clients. We are known for getting clients into their spaces quickly, but we will never cut corners or compromise on quality.
York Realty has built a thriving business and stellar reputation on our client-focused approach. We currently own and manage more than 5 million square feet with holdings throughout Edmonton and Western Canada, and we aim to double that number in the next 10 years. We concentrate on redevelopment, joint ventures and build-to-suit facilities, and we have the assets, flexibility and mobility to cater to every company’s requirements.
We believe that time spent upfront saves money during construction. That’s why, on every project, we emphasize the importance of the planning stage. It allows us to ensure that subcontractors have a full understanding of how the building will be used and how people and equipment will interact with it. During construction, we use Procore as our dedicated tool for instant access to plans, permits, contacts, weather and construction photos (weekly). On a bi-weekly or weekly basis, we have a 45-minute construction call to focus on high-level progress, schedule and budget and to identify any “breakout topics” for further discussion.
The keys to a successful project:
- Upfront planning
- Comprehensive understanding of facility requirements and planned use
- More upfront planning
- Regularly scheduled communication throughout construction
York has found that the most efficient way to achieve both cost savings and best environmental practices are to:
- Source locally – Concrete products from Alberta
- Build quality – Precast concrete has high R-Values and excellent thermal mass with low air leakag
