Princeton Pavilion

Princton Pavillion - Tilt Wall Ontario Inc.

Project Details

Building Use: Washrooms and Serving
Project Location Princeton, Ontario
Year Build: 2006
Enigneer of Record: MC Engineering
General Contractor: STM Construction
Total panels in sq. ft.: 1,862
Number of Panels: 12
Heaviest panel in lbs.: 20,600
Largest panel in sq. ft.: 283
Tallest panel in ft.: 9’-0″

Description

During the design stage, review budgets for this project using traditional masonry and tilt-up were conducted and tilt-up proved to be the more viable option. The floor slab of the covered portion acted as a casting slab for the construction of the panels. Left unpainted the exposed aggregate is a service that can take abuse without negatively impacting the visual aesthetics.

Description

The abusive nature of the recycling operations in this facility meant that a hard wall system was needed. Insulated tilt-up panels offered a durable solution to the requirements of this building.

Description

Tilt Wall exceeded its client’s expectations by demonstrating the strength of the tilt-up construction process at this 10,000 sq.ft. warehousing project in Woodstock, Ontario. The insulated concrete panels greatly reduce the amount of noise emanating from the facility, which is beneficial since a residential neighbourhood is only one block away. The durable walls and insulated panels will ensure the building stands for decades to come, while providing the owner significant cost savings heating and cooling small, but cavernous space.

Lakeland Developments Warehousing – Barrie, Ontario – 2019

Lakeland Developments Warehousing - Barrie, Ontario - first

Project Details

Building Location: Barrie, ON
Building use: Warehouse
Building size: 13,600 sq. ft.
Amount of Panel: 19 panels; 10,126 sq. ft. of insulated panel
Heaviest Panel: 63,750 lbs.

Description

The Lakeland Developments Warehousing Project was a prime example of the speed of tilt-up construction. Panel construction began on September 9, and panels were erected in just 8 hours over the course of October 7-8.

In addition to a short construction schedule, tilt-up construction helped reduce overall costs for this warehouse. Tilt-up will also enable the building owners to operate the space more efficiently over time, due to lower energy demands and the durability and safety of concrete.

The 13,600-sq. ft. structure was intended as a leasable warehouse space. So, whereas other projects may have involved specific requirements for a particular industry or company, the Lakeland Developments Warehouse was more standardized. The Tilt Wall team followed its normal process, finishing the project on schedule and resulting in an impressive building.

Granval Warehousing – Woodstock, Ontario – 2019

Granval Warehousing - Woodstock, Ontario - 2019

Project Details

Building Use: Multi-Tenant Industrial Warehouse
Building Location: Woodstock, ON
Project size in sq. ft.: 100,000
Total panels in sq. ft.: 54,364
Total insulated panels in sq. ft.: 53,878
Total non-insulated panels in sq. ft.: 486
Heaviest panel in lbs.: 120,000
Widest panel in ft.: 46.03
Tallest panel in ft.: 34.78

Description

This multi-tenant industrial warehouse project began in Fall 2019. The first floor was formed on October 15, and panel construction started October 21. The first section of walls was lifted into place in early December, and the remaining walls are scheduled to be lifted in early 2020.

Though the warehouse is quite large, totalling 100,000 sq. ft., it was designed to be divided into 10 separate units, with each one measuring 10,000 sq. ft. These individual spaces will serve a variety of purposes, including warehousing, distribution, and operations, among other duties.

Throughout construction, the Granval warehouse posed some unique challenges. The front façade featured very large openings, which caused some minor difficulties during the panelization and lifting stages. The Tilt Wall team overcame these issues by using temporary “legs” – they were poured onto the panels to help workers with manoeuvrability and will be removed once the panels are lifted.

Floors: 60,159 sq. ft.

Description

Construction on Muskoka Bay Resort’s five-storey, multi-unit condominium started in early 2019. Panel construction began the first week of March, the foundation was completed by the end of April, and all underground and floor slabs were completed at the end of May. Panels were erected from June 3 to July 18.

Because of the size of the building, Tilt Wall had to adjust some parts of its process. Typically, the team installs panels that are the height of the entire structure. However, in this case, that would’ve required panels that were 87’ tall. Instead, the team installed panels one floor at a time.

The team also solved for other challenges. Some parts of construction took place during the winter, so heaters were needed to protect the concrete during the curing stage. And the Liebherr LG 1750 lattice boom crane was used to lift panels and navigate the tight construction site, which was in the middle of the Canadian Shield.

Originally, cast-in-place concrete was considered for the project, but tilt-up construction proved to be faster, more cost-effective, and better-suited to overcome the limitations of the site.

The building is scheduled to open to the public in 2020.
