Pre-Con supplied the precast concrete elements for the 6 Level 1,180 stall Parking Garage built to serve patrons of the New Oakville Hospital Complex.

Pre-Con worked closely with the Architects early in the production stage to ensure the specified design aesthetics were achieved. Brampton’s Team crafted 3 different finishes by using textured form liners and pigments, in conjunction with a sandblasted surface treatment. The main goal was to match the precast panels on the adjacent Hospital Complex concurrently under construction.

Brampton’s erection crews carefully sequenced construction by using 5 different crane setups working West to East inside the footprint of the Parking Garage.

A separate smaller 80 ton crane erected the first Stair Tower & Elevator Shaft allowing the General Contractor to get an early start on the construction complexities of the Elevator Shaft. A 300 Ton Crane was then used to erect the large main structure.
The precast installation was completed 2 weeks ahead of schedule, assisting the General Contractor to achieve the original Substantial Completion Date.
