Molson Chilliwack

Through 2018 and 2019, Nickel Bros had the pleasure of working on the Molson Chilliwack Brewery project. This project was an incredible engineering, health & safety and logistics opportunity, as it presented unique challenges due to the number of trades working on site and multiple project phases being underway at once, along with the expectation that construction would not be interrupted. With limited space available, traditional installation methods were also rendered obsolete. This project was a fun challenge for our team, and one they handled with enthusiasm and dexterity.
