Designed by SRM architects inc. and MTE consultants inc., this new apartment building incorporates DELTABEAM® combined with the Comslab corrugated deck system. DELTABEAM® is a shallow steel beam designed for slim floor structure: encased in the concrete floor, DELTABEAM® is hidden in the floor structure. This enables easy HVAC integration, increased architecture flexibility and can reduce the overall height of a building. On the residential levels of Sugarcreek Village, DELTABEAM® spans across the equivalent of the driving aisle, making it possible to avoid all load transfers at ground level.
‘’With the DELTABEAM® System, we were able to avoid costly transfer beams at the ground level of Sugarcreek Village’’ says Ryan Peel, Manager of Development and Construction at old oak properties. ‘’With the exposed steel integrated fire rating of DELTABEAM®, we are avoiding having to fire proof the exposed steel and therefore avoiding another trade onsite’’. Old Oak Properties is a developer and builder of premium residential, commercial and retail properties in London, Ontario since 1955.
