The mid-rise mixed-use development underway in Markham’s Cathedraltown is already experiencing success with iSPAN’s light-gauge steel framing. The Courtyards will consist of two five-storey buildings with underground parking, commercial space and four storeys of residential living with spacious suites and outdoor terraces.
iSPAN’s TotalFraming system is shortening the construction schedule and resulting in significant cost savings for our client through a reduction in engineering work and consulting. The Composite TotalJoist floor assembly requires no formwork, no temporary shoring and once the floor topping is poured, the previous floor will be ready for mechanical and electrical trades to begin their rough-ins.
When complete in 2021, The Courtyards will make use of TotalFraming’s other benefits: high acoustic and vibration ratings between the suites and floors. These are increasingly becoming essential for those who live in close proximity with their neighbours.
