When a developer has a vision to change the status quo in design, you listen. In anticipation of code changes that would allow six-storey wood construction in Ontario, Quadrangle and Great Gulf designed condominiums with a modern take on the 4-storey walk-up concept. Great Gulf asked us to develop a prototype structure that could be prefabricated for quality and speed of construction and still meet the stringent engineering requirements of taller wood buildings. Our solution included new designs and systems for supporting brick cladding, roof top anchors, balcony and guard designs and hold downs.
