PROJECT: Alert Care “Conservatory Pond” Kingston, Ontario
GENERAL CONTRACTOR: Succession Development Group Toronto, Ontario
ARCHITECT: Fabian Architects Ltd. Burlington, Ontario
ICF SUPPLIER/INSTALLER: Insulated Concrete Solutions Kingston, Ontario
FEATURES: This 77,000 ft2 seniors’ residence used 6″ IntegraSpec® around the full exterior and select interior demising walls with 8″ IntegraSpec® for the interior corridor walls on all three levels 30′ above grade. All windows and a/c openings are finished with IntegraBucks and IntegraHeaders, while the doors were preset prior to concrete placement to meet strict fire code regulations.
BENEFITS: The General Contractors were offered a more complete package – including IntegraSpec®’s unique EPS finished openings, flexibility for preset doors, and an Exposed Concrete Face (ECF), which met the requirements for non combustible construction in commercial application as used for the elevator shafts. IntegraSpec® provided solutions to onsite design changes and easily handled severe winter weather conditions. Once complete, IntegraSpec® delivered a quiet, energy efficient complex.
AWARDS: Received the 2005 Best Heavy Commercial ICF Project Award and Best Overall ICF Award by ICF Builder. Presented at the International Builders Show held in Orlando, FL.
“After installing other ICF wall systems, the flexibility of the individual panels that IntegraSpec® provides is by far my number one choice among ICF systems. IntegraSpec® has given us the flexibility of being able to
pre install all door frames, window openings, and air conditioning sleeves. Since the owners are paying for heat and cooling costs, the senior citizen residence will give the owners their maximum return on their investment, as well as the savings from the construction costs since this building will have 90% of the exterior as stucco.”
