Beech House hits a Milestone!

We love reporting updates on our Beech House project and this one is particularly  newsworthy.  The second floor slab has been poured which effectively completes the YMCA portion of the structural build.  From here on, the condominium floors will rise rapidly above as The Beech House residential units take shape.   Stay tuned to our blog and Facebook page for more exciting updates on the project.

Our Beech House project is progressing well and we are anticipating reaching the 1st floor level by late summer.  We are looking forward to the building shell being up and enclosed by early 2018.    The team is  working diligently to qualify the Beech House for the Toronto Tier II Green Standard and we are all excited to be  part of this green initiative.   This voluntary commitment to higher environmental standards than the mandatory Tier I Green Standard has a rigorous list of must-do’s in order to qualify.   To read more on this program,  click here

We will be posting monthly updates on the progress of construction, so check our Blog page regularly to keep updated and informed!

Beech House Construction Update

Construction on our Beech House project is on track and residents can look forward to a tentative Fall 2018 occupancy.  The aerial shot above was taken April 2, 2017 and shows the progress being made as concrete is poured and the building gradually rises out of the ground.   Keep watching our blog for regular updates on the construction progress.

Spring is in the air

Spring subtly tiptoed in at 6:58 yesterday morning.  In reality though the first full 24 hours of unmitigated, absolute “Springdom” is today, March 21st.   And as the sun pours down upon us, the Kingston Road Village flower markets are all bursting in colourful displays of scented loveliness with promises of beautiful and aromatic flora to grace every room of your home.  Shopping local benefits you, your merchants and the neighbourhood as a whole.

When The Wind Blows

With spring less than a week away, Mother Nature decided to have a little bit of fun by throwing another winter wallop at us yesterday.    Snow, bitter cold and extreme high winds were the order of the day and those type of weather conditions can wreak havoc on a construction schedule.

Yesterday, our Beech House project was forced to shut down operation of the crane due to high winds and freezing rain and snow.  Temperatures of less than minus 16 and winds over 55 kms per hour mandate the shutting down of the crane for safety concerns.   At this stage of the build, the crane is an integral player on the field and its inability to operate safely virtually brings the whole site to a grinding halt.   Many factors are taken into account regarding the operation of a crane under adverse conditions including but not limited to temperatures, wind, precipitation, as well as load dimensions and weight.  Safety First necessitates prudence in these matters.  Twenty-Four hours later and we are back up and running and looking forward to a gentler Mother Nature in the weeks to come.
