Stud Rail Projects in Ontario this Spring

Peikko was recently awarded several stud rail projects in Ontario

Among these projects: 
  • 236 Richmond Road (Ottawa)
    Designed by Goodeve Manhire Partners
  • Stirling Park (Ottawa)
    Designed by Goodeve Manhire Partners
  • Tamarack Wellington Condo (Ottawa)
    Designed by Halsall Associates
  • Millen Shores Condo (Hamilton)
    Designed by RJC Consulting Engineers
  • Princess Lane Lofts (Kitchener)
    Designed by Blackwell Structural Engineers

Through the use of Peikko Stud Rail, the innovative structural engineers mentioned above were able to improve the design of their concrete structures. The advantage: eliminate drop panels under the concrete slab. The outcome: exposed concrete ceilings and improved coordination with HVAC systems.

‘’We now use Stud Rail regularly on our projects’’ explains Peter Goodeve, partner at Goodeve Manhire Partners. ‘’Client satisfaction is our priority, which is why we are keen on eliminating column capitals’’ says Peter. Indeed, developers and architects alike are increasingly designing apartment buildings with exposed ceilings. Absence of column capitals allow for greater flexibility with architectural ceiling layouts and with mechanical layout. Use of stud rails are usually more cost effective in flat slab construction than capitals.

The Ottawa projects mentioned above are with AGF-Raymond rebar. ''Peikko is a reliable supplier: they are focused on project management to deliver on time'' says Christian Witt, General Manager at AGF-Raymond. AGF group is one of the largest reinforcing steel companies in Canada and operates 13 locations across Ontario.
