Armtec Brampton Precast Concrete Solutions supplied the precast concrete elements for the 6 Level 1,180 stall Parking Garage built to serve patrons of the New Oakville Hospital Complex.

Armtec worked closely with the Architects early in the production stage to ensure the specified design aesthetics were achieved.

Brampton’s Team  crafted 3 different finishes by using textured form liners and pigments, in conjunction with a sandblasted surface treatment. The main goal was to match the precast panels on the adjacent Hospital Complex concurrently under construction.

Brampton’s erection crews carefully sequenced construction by using 5 different crane setups working West to East inside the footprint of the Parking Garage.

A separate smaller 80 ton crane erected the first Stair Tower & Elevator Shaft allowing the General Contractor to get an early start on the construction complexities of the Elevator Shaft. A 300 Ton Crane was then used to erect the large main structure.

The precast installation was completed 2 weeks ahead of schedule, assisting the General Contractor to achieve the original Substantial Completion Date
