Why we LOVE Sovereign: Metrotown’s Newest, Highest Landmark building





At Black Tie we are proud to take part in working with the latest exciting projects, especially when they are forecasted to become B.C. landmarks!  Here’s the latest project feature we’d love to share with you.  Currently we are working on the post construction clean on Sovereign by Bosa.

Built by one of our favorite, highly reputable construction companies – Bosa Construction, it is  located on Kingsway and Willingdon Avenue in Burnaby B.C.

“Rising a majestic 500-feet into the Metrotown skyline, Sovereign boasts 202 luxury residences, 169 guest rooms and over 100,000 square feet of prime retail space. Destined to become a B.C. landmark, Sovereign heralds a new era of sophistication and style at the gateway to Metrotown.”

Being one of the tallest towers in the Lower Mainland, Sovereign poses some interesting technical challenges for our crew. Being outside of the height allowed by Worksafe BC for rope access work, we have to use suspended scaffolds (swing stages) to gain access to the glass. Once the building is completed and occupied, a permanent system will be installed by Tractel to allow maintenance crews access to the exterior of the building.

Therefore, our team has been hard at work, using rope access and aerial lifts to clean the lower 5 levels of the tower. Meanwhile, the crew working on the top portion of the tower is following closely behind the painters, giving the windows and balconies their final clean.

We are proud to work in partnership with our good friends at White Knight Janitorial, and to be part of this landmark project.
