Searching for Wall or Floor System That Speeds up Construction?

April 25, 2019

Load-Bearing Exterior Wall System

The construction of commercial, industrial and institutional buildings can be exponentially accelerated through the use of prefabricated, factory-assembled load-bearing wall panels. Since these walls are manufactured under ideal conditions and with strict quality control, labour on site is considerably reduced  which therefore speeds up construction schedule considerably.

Discover a compelling example of construction speed with this time-lapse video showing the expansion of a commercial building in less than three weeks!

This type of load-bearing wall can also be used for buildings such as:

  • Fire stations
  • Schools
  • Offices and mixed-use buildings
  • Shopping centers

Composite Floor System

The construction of multi-residential buildings can be accelerated by the use of a composite floor system. This system can reduce the erection schedule of the superstructure by up to 25%. The quick installation of floors makes it possible to accelerate access to other trades.

Witness a quick installation with this time-lapse video presenting the erection of a superstructure of 140,791 ft² (13,080 m²) in only 15 weeks!

This floor system is widely used throughout North America for the construction of multi-storey buildings. The joists that are part of the system are known for their unsupported spans that reach up to 13.1 m (43 ft) and for providing maximum openings through the floor assembly.

You benefit from the reduced height and large free spans.
