Pastoral centre construction faced many challenges

Some of the ground was unstable; spill gates, canals, and retention tank used to collect rain water
To meet the challenge of excessive rainfall, the labourers of Ventana Construction Corp. built a water retention tank in July 2014 and buried it underneath the work site. After the rainwater was collected, it was pumped into a treatment tank, then transferred to the city's storm drain. Dan Aird / Special to The B.C. Catholic.
Despite years of meticulous planning, the work site at 33rd Avenue and Willow Street provided a unique challenge for hard-hatted labourers. For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.
