Garage Ramp Repair

The repair of the garage access ramp at this high-rise condominium located in the heart of downtown Toronto required special access solutions.  The garage ramp was specified to be completed in two phases with temporary traffic lights installed to facilitate access while work was in progress.  Continued monitoring and coordinating with the Property Manager, Building Staff and Contractor allowed for minimal disruption to the residents during the work. 

Retaining Wall Replacement

This townhome condominium client required replacement of a deteriorating wood creosote retaining wall, desiring something more modern.  A unitized system of precast elements was selected, providing a technically viable alternative with an updated look.
