Last week, Alberta Co-op re-opened its doors after a swift eleven-day transformation that gave it an entirely new look and feel. Working together closely with Propel Studio and many other local subcontractors, Owen Gabbert LLC helped give this well-loved community-owned grocery store a full transformation in under two weeks’ time.
In order to spruce up the space within a short period of time, we collaborated more closely than ever with the architects and subcontractors on-site. In addition, we pre-planned much of our work – building the casework and creating templates for the counters off-site. This enabled the OGLLC team to install all casework and counters, as well as hang all lighting, in just 48 hours. In addition to this work, our team also did a complete demo of the preexisting floors, cash registers, eating bar, wine racks, and soffit. We then placed brand-new, durable LVT flooring and reframed a new soffit that runs the full length of the store.
The end result is a bright and open space that features white oak, steel accents, and light countertops, all of which come together to create a modern feel for this beautiful local grocery spot.
