Algoma Orchards, Bowmanville tilt-up by Tiltwall

Description

When it came time to build a new facility Algoma went straight to their trusted general contractor Johnson Building and his preferred method of construction, tilt-up.  Using load bearing tilt-up allowed them to achieve a durable product that also maximized the interior square footage by eliminating bulky interior columns.  The exterior of the building was completed using a painted finish and cultured stone applied to the market area.  Since construction commenced on this project in 2008 3 more tilt-up additions have been made.
