Project Details

This giant 855,000 square-foot fulfillment centre next to John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport required an extremely short construction timeline, yet still needed to deliver a long-lasting, durable exterior wall structure.

Tilt-up construction was chosen and more than 200,000 square feet of panels were formed and raised in only eight months. This is a crowning achievement for Tilt Wall’s team and illustrates how tilt-up construction can provide excellent value during the construction stage as well as after its completion.
