PRE-ENG BUILDING WITH STRUCTURAL STEEL MEZZANINE | DESIGN-BUILD | PRECAST INSULATED CONCRETE WALL PANELS | BENDHEIM ARCHITECTURAL GLASS

CALGARY, AB

REFRIGERATIVE SUPPLY LIMITED

Project Outline

Refrigerative Supply Limited in North Calgary needed a new, larger facility, that would accommodate needed warehouse space, and include a training facility, sales floor, and additional office space. The result is a 30,000 sq.ft. Behlen Pre-Engineered Facility with 8,000 sq.ft. of sales and office space on the main floor, and an 8,000 sq.ft. mezzanine that includes training areas, meeting space, and additional offices. The remaining space was designated for warehouse use.

Project Challenges

Installation of the Bendheim glass and coloured glass curtain wall faced unexpected delays. Only one supplier was used for all of the glass in the build. Any replacement curtain wall pieces had to be reordered and shipped from Burnaby, British Columbia, while the Bendheim glass was brought in from overseas.

Project Successes

Despite the delays with product shipments and weather issues, the facility opened on schedule. We were able to adapt the designs to allow for glass installation at a later date, after coordinating the change with site staff, office staff, and subcontractors. This required innovative construction solutions from the Flynn Bros Team by reprioritizing parts of the build to be finished earlier to avoid overall delays in the project deadline.
