PROJECT

Chelsea Barracks: MAC climbing system and AluStar wall formwork on schedule

Chelsea Barracks were built in the 1860s in the area between Sloane Square and the Thames to house two battalions of troops. In the 1960s, the original Victorian buildings were replaced by two 13-storey concrete tower blocks. These were demolished to make way for new residential plans some years ago. After being sold, the area is now being developed. Three 8-storey towers with 74 apartments are being built on the site.

Contractor Byrne Bros. Ltd. once again chose the MAC automatic hydraulic system to climb the shafts. Project management is adhering to a tight, ambitious time schedule for concrete works and relies on the system’s proven advantages in terms of safety, efficiency, speed and quality. On the MAC platform, which is completely enclosed, AluStar panels are being used as hanging shutters. They are set up, moved and adjusted entirely by hand.

    One of Ontario’s busiest transportation corridors, Highway 400, began a major expansion project through Kings Township in late 2016. This $79.3 million dollar (CAD) project includes the widening of the highway from three to six lanes in each direction for a two mile stretch and also entails safer on and off ramps, the expansion and realignment of culverts, and the replacement of two bridges − one of them the South Canal Bridge.
