A Kamloops developer says the recent blast of cold weather has been the first this winter to impact construction projects.

Arpa Investments partner Joshua Knaak said concrete is waiting to be poured at the Spirit Square mixed-use housing development in North Kamloops.

“For us, this is the first week in the winter where we have had to plan our work for weather,” Knaak said.

Overall, he called it an “excellent” winter for construction.

Knaak said there have been no delays in recent months, noting warm weather has cut down on costs.

The cold weather has been taking its toll on parts of Kamloops, with crews being called to Staples in Dufferin to deal with a pipe bursting in the frigid temperatures.

Environment Canada is calling for frosty temperatures to remain through the week, but the winter so far has been milder than usual.

Winter will officially end on March 20.
