Project Update — Feb. 12, 2017

After several months of challenging and often frustrating delays, we are very happy to report that we feel that all of the issues surrounding the building code requirements for our Accessibility Project have now been satisfied between the engineer, the architects and the City of Winnipeg.

We have received the stamped drawings from engineer and architects signifying their approval, and an application for the Building Permit has been submitted to the City of Winnipeg. In addition, our general contractor has now received the final quotations from all the trades to give us a firm cost for the project.

On January 29th at a congregational meeting, it was reported that the cost of the entire project, $438,000 includes upgrades to the sanctuary required by the building code, as well as a number of extras we feel we need which were not included in the actual construction quotation. A motion was passed at the meeting to approve the $438,000 plus a $40,000 contingency (in the event of unforeseen costs), for a total of $478,000.

Financially, you will see from Marvelle’s report that we have done extremely well. With the approval of our application to Enabling Accessibility Grant (Government of Canada) in the amount of $50,000, our situation has been further strengthened.

On behalf of both the MCP Task Group and the MCP Fund Raising Committee, we wish to thank those that have contributed so generously to this very worthwhile project.
