Concrete and Cinder block-free Elevator Shaft Solution


Medicine Tree Manor, located in High River AB, features 100 suites comprised of studio, one bedroom and two bedroom accommodation ranging from 285 to 785 sq. ft. situated on three oors, seniors enjoy quality amenities in the co ee bar, lounge, dining room, library, and numerous recreation areas with hospitality and service.


To ful ll their needs, Medicine Tree Manor considered installing concrete blocks that would take 4-6 weeks to complete. As an accommodation service, being ready for market at the right time is detrimental, and slow construction time means missed opportunities.


An alternative was presented when ConstructShield’s superior panelized systems were able to erect three shafts in only 10 hours! This is a completely cinder block and concrete-free solution.

The shaft was manufactured in a controlled environment, then shipped to the site where it was crane lifted and installed.


Medicine Tree Manor was able to achieve their results without having to resort to concrete, curing, a 4-6 week delay, additional costs, and all accomplished within 1 working day! This also reduced the amount of trades on site as there was no need for cement masons which would be on the job site for 4-6 weeks. That would have also required sca olding and mixers and other space consuming equipment.
