Wales McLelland Chosen by Developer Dayhu Group to Build $25M Boundary Bay Distribution Centre in Delta, B.C.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 7, 2013) - Wales McLelland, a nationally recognized name in the construction industry, is pleased to announce it has been chosen by Canadian developer The Dayhu Group to commence construction on Phase I of 900,000 square feet of prime commercial real estate in Boundary Bay, Delta, B.C.

"We are thrilled to have this opportunity to participate in the development of one of the largest and most prominent new commercial areas in the province that will showcase environmentally-conscious, state-of-the-art warehousing and distribution facilities," said Doug Scott, President of Wales McLelland. "We are proud to be associated with the Dayhu Group who are truly forward thinkers and leaders in the industrial Canadian real estate market."

Boundary Bay Industrial Park is the next generation distribution center with greater than average ceiling heights of 36 feet clear, providing significantly more storage volume for large-scale users. In addition to the increase in storage capacity other features include ESFR sprinklers, T5 high efficiency lighting with motion sensors, high capacity hydraulic dock-levellers and extensive on-site trailer parking.

There is a looming shortage of usable industrial land where expanding big box retailers and other large warehousing and distribution companies are actively seeking suitable space to support their growth and make transporting goods and services in British Columbia more efficient and economically viable. Boundary Bay Industrial Park presents a solution and sufficient reason for these potential tenants to utilize this facility to grow, provide jobs and contribute to the local economy.

"The new ceiling heights allow for building up, rather than out which is a sound strategy to increasing storage capacity at a time where land use is limited," said Paul Tilbury, Chief Operating Officer, Dayhu Group. He continued, "Wales is a highly dependable construction partner that we count on to deliver a full-service approach whose quality of work is exceptional. They are great people to collaborate with and we know they'll get the job done enabling us to concentrate on creating more opportunity for our clients and encouraging increased trade in B.C."

Boundary Bay is located on the British Columbia and U.S. border in the municipality of Delta. The area is currently utilized by the Boundary Bay Airport with companies such as Heli-One as tenants.

Construction has commenced on the new distribution center with completion expected in early 2014.
