The Deltabeam system is being used once again in London, Ontario. The Azure, a high rise condo project in the heart of downtown London, will be the tallest residential tower in the city. Through the use of Deltabeam, the architect was able to maximize vertical space and make the most of this valuable real estate.
One of the key partners for this project was HGS Ltd structural engineers. HGS stood out on The Azure through detailed design and focus on customer satisfaction. ‘’For The Azure, we wanted to continue designing with Deltabeam and precast concrete ’’ states Medhat Ghabrial, VP and founder of HGS. ‘’ With Deltabeam, we were able to design a quality structure built within a tight schedule’’.
The Tricar Group, a London based company, is a large size builder with over 5000 condo/apartment units already built. Construction is underway on Azure, Tricar’s latest high rise tower. Azure is a 30 story building which incorporates a combination of hollow core slabs and Deltabeam. The hollow core supplier for the structure of Azure is Stubbe’s Precast.
