Wellington Dufferin Guelph Public Health New Unit – Guelph

Delivery Method: Construction Management

Value: $ 15.5M

This project involved the new construction of a 31,413 square foot, 3 storey facility that includes a lower level health centre and community facility. The lower level and first floor include meeting and storage rooms, offices, dental rooms, speech & language rooms, consulting rooms and examination rooms. The second floor contains meeting rooms and the third floor will be used as leased space. Buttcon’s innovative approach to this project was to revise the shoring caisson design to improve constructability and schedule.  We did this by eliminating the rebar cages within the individual caissons and replacing them with intervals of soldier piles and interlocking the caissons with each other and eliminate any concern for water penetration between piles.
