Milton Medical Office
The EPS team has had an exciting summer!
We are deep in the process of our Medical Building project in Milton, ON. This project is a joint venture with Scott Construction Group, a Canadian construction management firm. We are constructing a four-storey commercial project at 6 Bronte Street South, will be approximately 23,000 square feet, with three floors of office space over one floor of retail. Parking will be below grade as well as surface parking at grade. The superstructure is structural steel, and the parkade is cast-in-place concrete.
As always, our team has been consistently onsite. We actively are posting on our social media to share the project’s progress with you. These weekly updates and snippets of what we’re up to ensure that our clients and those interested are well informed. Our informative posts are designed to deliver what’s going on behind the scene, and not only highlight the “glamorous” elements and end results. We’ve been breaking down these elements to give you a first hand look as to what is crucial.
In case you missed it, here are some key highlights from our work in the past few months:
Shoring is a form of temporary support that is used during the construction of buildings and during excavation. It’s only temporary because it provides relief for a short period of time in order for new construction to be effective.
Footings are one of the most important parts of foundation construction. Made of concrete with rebar enforcement, they are poured into an excavated trend. The purpose of footings is to support the foundation to prevent settling in the future.
Rebar is critical to the strength of a buildings foundation. Concrete alone has high strength under compression, but with the addition of rebar, it provides additional strength for tension and flexion.
Steam bending is a woodworking technique where strips of wood are steam heated using a steam box. The applied heat and moisture makes the wood pliable enough to easily bend around a former to create a specific shape. This is done immediately after the columns are put into place.
Formwork, also known as shuttering, is temporary or permanent moulds that concrete (or similar material) are poured.
We look forward for the continued success with this project – and sharing with you along the way!
