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.
