Project Case Studies
The project involved the construction of a new 3–storey plus basement, 48,000 ft2 reinforced concrete health care clinic with a 2-storey structural steel link over a two lane roadway to the existing Pembroke Regional Hospital. A design-build project with a constrained budget, an efficient and cost-effective structure was a project priority. Working closely with the builder and the design team, structural efficiencies were maximized while still allowing the building to meet the functional requirements and the Architectural Vision for the project, including a challenging 4-storey glass atrium.
The 25,000 ft2 building located in Arnprior, Ontario houses a maintenance facility for the repair of helicopters. The pre-engineered steel frame facility also contains storage and office areas, as well as, a loading crane. As the client had an aggressive design & construction schedule, exceptional lines of communication and a complete team approach to the design was required throughout the course of the project.
The 3-storey, 50,000 ft2 concrete framed office building was constructed in 2 phases. Initially conceptualized as a single stage construction, tenant demand required that the building be redesigned during the post tender/initial construction phases of the project to accommodate an additional 3-storey horizontal addition. Structural designs and drawings were aggressively prepared to maintain construction schedules and meet tenant move in dates.
Located in Belleville, the plant building was composed of a pre-engineered structural steel building which was approximately 200,000 ft2 in size. The facility contained extensive manufacturing equipment, crane rails, and cat-walks. This fast paced design-build project demanded prompt innovative designs and excellent relations with the design team, owners and users to meet the project’s aggressive schedule.
The design-build project was comprised of the construction of two high-bay warehouse buildings (32,000 ft2 and 34,000 ft2) adjacent to each other. Long span bays were required to maximize the interior spaces of the building and ensure the flexibility of the structure to accommodate tenants of various sizes and occupancies. The structural elements were designed and detailed to be robust enough to support future fit-up mechanical equipment and to allow for the construction of a future mezzanine area while still being as efficient as possible to minimize capital costs to the owners.
