The Beer Store
To augment their capacity, the Beer Store undertook the building of a new distribution centre in Caledon, ON North West of Toronto. The 407,000 square foot LEED-certified facility will be capable of storing 2.8 million cases of beer at any one time. Construction of the single level warehouse was entrusted to Maple Reinders, a firm known for quality, reliability, and on-time delivery.
To ensure the quality of the concrete foundation work, Maple Reinders turned to Form & Build Supply.Form & Build was able to provide Dupont SM 50 mm rigid insulation to insulate the entirety of the building foundation. Dupont rigid insulation is a high-quality, extruded polystyrene foam insulation board that protects foundation walls from dampness and the damage from the freeze-thaw cycle.
Originally, the insulation was to be fastened to the foundation using a trowel-applied insulation adhesive.To help expedite this laborious process, Form & Build suggested the Ramset Insulfast T4 System be used instead. The system consists of the automatic Insulfast tool and Insulfast fasteners. With the ability to shoot up to 1,000 fastener pins per hour, the lightweight Insulfast tool enables workers to affix insulation at a rate four times faster than traditional methods.
The feedback from the site after adopting the system supplied by Form & Build was almost immediate and overwhelmingly positive. The general sentiment from the jobsite was that the Insulfast tools and fasteners were the best purchase they’d ever made and resulted in big savings of both
time and money. Whether the job is big or small, Form & Build Supply strives to supply you with the things you need to get the job done. If you’d like to learn more, you can contact Mike Brown, here.
