Structural Engineer of Ottawa Condo Project Eliminates Drop Panels


460 St. Laurent, a luxury condo project by Brigil Real Estate Development, broke ground in Ottawa this year. The project is comprised of 13 residential floors, all of which are designed incorporating Peikko stud rail. Thanks to innovators at Goodeve Manhire Partners (structural engineers), most drop panels in the cast-in-place structure were eliminated. 


"Drop panels are expensive" explains Yves Taillefer, director of estimating and design at Brigil. "We like stud rails because we can save money and time on formwork while helping our architects and engineers with their design" adds Mr. Taillefer. Indeed a slim concrete floor gives more freedom to designers: especially in projects with exposed concrete ceilings.

  2. Location, location, location - is the mantra of the real estate business. This is naturally true for Miami real estate as well. twin vew showflat
