Vulcraft was an existing tenant of York’s that was purchased by a large multi-national company, Nucor Steel. Nucor’s process was to use state of the art equipment and facilities in order to maximize productivity and output – unfortunately the existing facility was simply unable to accommodate the process flow required. York was able to design and construct a high-quality, pre-cast building with a unique shape and structure which allowed for ideal product flow at the most efficient cost. Nucor and York worked together to use all Nucor Steel products within the design as exemplified by column 1 of the building – a steel column signed by all of the Nucor Steel employees from Utah where the column was constructed.
ASA Alloys is a successfully growing business in Sherwood Park, AB. ASA needed expansion space to accommodate their growing business but did not want to relocate until they could sell their existing facility. York was able to provide a “backstop” for ASA by agreeing to purchase their existing building in the event that ASA was unable to find a purchaser, at the same time as constructing a new, state-of-the-art facility with outstanding exposure along Highway 16. The deal structure gave ASA Alloys the flexibility and security they needed to be comfortable moving into a new facility. ASA Alloy’s building will be a showcase for the company, for York and for Sherwood Park.
With the closure of Edmonton City Centre Airport, York and two other partners (Sawridge Group and Aurora Jet Partners) saw an opportunity to relocate existing aircraft operators to Edmonton’s International Airport. Together, they constructed a new hangar and office facility at the International Airport which consisted of 80,000 sf of clear-span hangar space, 40,000 sf of office space and a Fixed Based Operator for itinerant aircraft (Signature Flight Support). The site currently provides a base of operations for multiple governmental and private aircraft operators and includes free cookies for all who travel through it.
NOV approached York in late 2015 looking for a high-quality fabrication space in the Calgary market. The falling oil prices highlighted the need for a creative approach to handle NOV’s requirements, which included an attractive warm shop space with natural light and the capacity to add major paint and blast bay components. York was able to work with NOV to provide them the flexibility required in the legal agreements while uncertainty remained in the price of oil, and the ability to expand and invest in the facility once certainty returned to the market.
