Construction on VANCOUVER HOUSE is well underway and Torrent has been there from the ground up. Project schedulers have reported that Torrent’s ability to provide more wall every day has the portion of the project that Torrent is responsible for is coming in an astounding 28 days ahead of schedule. The distinct advantage of Torrent’s superior application technology and craftsmanship is coming through loud and clear on this world-class building that industry experts say will influence world architecture for years to come.
Located in the Port Town neighbourhood in East Vancouver, Ironworks consists of two commercial buildings with stacked layouts combining new office spaces with industrial, warehouse and showroom space. Structural concrete underground foundations, cores and architectural/structural above-ground shotcrete walls marry up to similarly finished tilt-up panels. These features are combined with structural steel components and pre-cast floors as well. The architectural finish applied to the structural shotcrete walls matches the finish of the pre-cast tilt-up walls so closely that any visual difference is virtually unnoticeable.
