Our products are present in major works in Canada, some of them recognized by the Ontario Concrete Awards, an award that annually highlights the work of architects, engineers, contractors and owners who contribute to the success of the concrete industry in Ontario, Canada. In 2014, four works carried out with our products were awarded: the Bridgepoint Active Healthcare hospital complex, the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Ottawa, the Taoist temple Fung Loy Kok and the Aga Khan Museum. Learn more about these works:
Bridgepoint Active Healthcare Hospital Complex
In 2003, in Toronto, Canada, an expansion project modernized and expanded the facilities of Bridgepoint Active Healthcare, a hospital and research complex built to care for patients with complex health conditions. The 680,000 m² of its facilities house a 10-story building and 404 beds, in rooms designed to facilitate patient care, accommodate the latest equipment and provide natural light. Each floor has dining rooms, activity rooms and areas designed for patient stimulation, interaction and social participation.
Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Ottawa
For the first time in the history of the University of Ottawa, the 10,000 students of the Faculty of Social Sciences, its 260 professors and 100 employees could be together in the same building, sharing greater and better opportunities for teaching and research activities. The building was awarded in the Institutional Construction category.
The 25,299 m² area houses the new 15-story building, which meets strict environmental guidelines, reflecting the university’s values and commitment to sustainable development.
Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism, a Taoist temple in Toronto
The temple, designed by award-winning Shim-Sutcliffe Architects, was awarded in the Materials Development & Innovation category. The project incorporated the use of a special concrete called ShrinkGuardTM to meet the strict technical specifications of the work, which required the construction of complex geometric shapes and a high level finish in all exposed areas. 🇧🇷
Aga Khan Museum & Ismaili Center
Inaugurated in September 2014 in Toronto, the museum displays more than a thousand pieces of art that present an overview of the artistic production of Muslim civilizations, from the Iberian Peninsula to China. The Museum was awarded at the 2014 Ontario Concrete Awards in the Innovation in Structural Design category.
