Municipality of Durham
As part of its Master Plan, the Municipality of Durham undertook efforts to build a new wastewater treatment and pumping station in Seaton. This station will accommodate future development and growth in the GTA’s largest municipality. Maple Reinders was awarded the Design/Build contract for this project and looked to Form & Build Supply to help provide a wide array of the products specified on this project.
A notable success story on this project relates to the procurement of the concrete forming tubes. The project plans required the forming subcontractor to cast-in-place a total of 48 concrete columns 24 feet high by 20 inches in diameter. The challenge arose from the scheduling of these pours. Around 12 columns could reasonably be set up and poured together. However, receiving all forming tubes at once was not ideal because the unused tubes would have to sit outside and possibly be subject to degradation due to weather. Degraded product ultimately leads to higher costs.
To overcome this challenge, Form & Build worked closely with the forming subcontractor to lay out a specific delivery schedule of the tubes to the site. Working with the manufacturer – Greif – this delivery schedule provided the contractor not only the forming tubes required but all the necessary accessories when they were needed. By working in close partnership with the contractor, Form & Build ensured that the required product was delivered in a timeframe that fit with the pre-determined construction schedule.
Customer service that helps you get the job done right is something Form & Build strives for on every project.
