South Kensington is one of Saskatoon’s newest neighbourhoods and the Big Block team’s work can be seen in three parcels of land: the Kensington Plaza commercial area, the Kensington Estates townhouses, and the Kensington Flats low-rise apartment.

At Kensington Plaza, we opted for a traditional construction method to build a commercial strip mall and restaurant space due to flexible timelines and to allow time for acquiring tenants. 

Located steps away from the commercial conveniences of Kensington Plaza is Kensington Flats – the award-winning building named Best Apartment Style Project of 2017 by the Saskatoon & Region Home Builder’s Association. Kensington Flats was built with modular construction methods and completed in less than 15 months.

The 63-unit condominium complex’s elevator shaft, fire separation, aesthetic canopies, and 24,000 sqft. flat roof (complete with award-winning internal drainage system) were expertly integrated into the modular design and installed entirely indoors to expedite the on-site construction process and save on expenses. This approach also protects residents’ homes and aids in affordable condo fees for years to come.
