A Note on Work Times

Since April there has been a Provincial Government exemption to Municipal Construction Hours. This has been used periodically on the site to allow workers and contractors to stagger start and end times on the site in order to permit more social distancing and reduce potential exposure during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Staff have arrived prior 9 am on some Saturdays, but every effort is made to minimize any noise that would impact neighbouring properties. Most major construction activities occur within the standard City of Toronto construction hours. The site managers are committed to minimizing disruption and noise while also ensuring a safe site.
