Surge of Deltabeam Projects in Ontario

From Ottawa to London and from Toronto to Muskoka, from high-rise condo towers to low-rise commercial buildings, deltabeam is present at more Ontario construction sites than ever before. Over a 6 months period, Peikko will have delivered to 12 projects totalling 800 individual beams. End to end, they would stretch 4.6 kilometres! Here are some of the highlights…

Two Hundred – The Beach, Toronto, Condo
This 6 storey condo project incorporates Deltabeam, hollow core slabs and wide flange steel columns. Through the use of Deltabeam, the project has a slim floor across all levels. Multiple cantilevers were also introduced through the use of our specialized beam: in some configurations continuous Deltabeam helped with the design of balconies, while in other cases added steel on the side of Deltabeam facilitated each slab’s edge design.

Structural engineer: Atkins + Van Groll
Architect: Richard Ziegler Architect
Developer: The Riedel Group, Mitchell & Associates
General Contractor: LCL Builds
Hollow core slab supplier: The Prestressed Group

The Village of Erin Meadows, Phase II
Mississauga, Retirement Residence

This 12 storey retirement care and apartment project combines Deltabeam, hollow core slabs and a cast-in-place vertical frame. Deltabeam enabled a 250mm (10 inch) shallow assembly with bay sizes of 11.1 meters X 7.4 meters (36.5 feet X 24 feet). The 2 hour integrated fire rating was essential for the project.
