project overview

The muster station was built to post disaster standards and specifications. It included a technical foundation design using Geofoam which is a light weight fill that gives you control over a geotechnical project. This HSS welded steel frame building with steel stud infill fulfilled the major occupancy, Group “F”, Div 2 Storage rating. It consisted of an office, mechanical, electrical, washroom, shower and truck back with a covered storage area. The wall assembly included insulated concrete block wall and insulated corrugated metal wall. The finishing boasted metal cladding, concrete block and cast iron pipe.

During the construction process, particularly excavation we paid strict caution to the high pressure gas main crossings and other existing underground services. The safety and coordination of this aspect was challenging but easily overcome.
