The winter holidays have passed us by and we are moving skyward at the corner of Lillian and Soudan! We here at LASH had a fantastic holiday season filled with family, friends and revelry. All the while we have still been progressing up and, eventually, out of the excavation at Distinction Condominiums.
As previously mentioned, we are continuing with the repeating construction cycle. Now that the excavation is complete, we are able to continue to build upwards towards ground floor grade.
Waterproofing is applied to exterior lagged/shored walls that then get formed and poured with steel and concrete, respectively. Interior columns and walls are formed and poured as we are working floor by floor forming the underground parking levels.
We have completed the slab on grade which forms the base of the buildings structure, columns and walls were poured allowing us to then pour our second level of underground slab (the floor of P3 parking level.) Again and again you will see the same sequence of events occur until the interior concrete structure of the condo is complete. Floor by floor, columns and walls will be formed with steel reinforcement bar and wood forming to allow us to pour concrete to support the level above. All the while that this is happening it should be mentioned that mechanical, including plumbing and drains, and electrical conduits are being tied into the walls/columns/slab that are being formed and poured. This allows for easy completion of all internal infrastructure for the buildings systems. In the future conduits that are tied into the forms and poured into the concrete structure will be filled with wires for electrical distribution. Sleeving is also present to allow for pipes to run through slabs and walls where necessary to complete the plumbing distribution. All the trades are working in unison at this stage to ensure that the all building systems and required elements are prepared for once we start the finishing stages of construction.
As we continue on there will be daily concrete pours. As well reinforcement steel will be delivered multiple times a week. As always, we always attempt to mitigate any inconvenience to the neighbourhood at large. Trucks are not staging in the immediate area and we have worked closely with city staff and local community members to ensure that we do our best to avoid any issues while we work through this crucial stage of the development.
