Construction Liaison Meeting this Thursday, February 22. 

Saturday Work

A crew will be on site this Saturday, February 17, moving the outrigger platform on the upper floors. We expect there will be some additional delays to traffic during this operation. Minto apologizes for this inconvenience but it is necessary to ensure the safety of the work crew and the public. A Paid Duty Officer will be on to assist with managing short-term traffic delays. 

NOTE: The site will be closed on Monday, February 19, for the Family Day Holiday.

Current Construction  Status 

  • Concrete work is active on Level 46.
  • The Curtain Wall installation is complete to Level 29. 
  • Window Wall installation is complete to Level 25. 

This week’s construction outlook, February 20 – 23:

  • Concrete pouring for the Level 47 slab floor is set to begin this week, once work on Level 46 is completed.
  • Curtain Wall window installation continues on Level 30
  • Window Wall window installation continues on Level 26.
  • Corridor stud installation will be active on Level 23.
  • Interior suite stud installation will be active on Level 15.

Looking Ahead:

  • On Saturday, February 24th Minto crews will again be moving the outrigger platform higher on the tower. As with the work set for Saturday, February 17, short-term delays to traffic on Church Street will be necessary. A Paid Duty Officer will be on site to assist with short-term traffic delays.

  • Toronto Hydro will be  switching the Saint power supply to its permanent setup. The main power line is already on site, so Minto does not expect there to be work that will have an impact on the street (closures or interruptions). However, the plans and schedules are being managed by Toronto Hydro, so Minto will not be in charge of this work. Toronto Hydro provided an “end of April” deadline for this work to be completed. Once we have more information we will provide appropriate updates.

    A reminder about Concrete Finishing in cold weather.

    This week is forecast to see a return of more typical winter temperatures, ranging from +2 to -8. As we have noted in the past posts, cold weather affects concrete work. Though not as severe as the last cold snap, this will also be true this coming week. The active temperature requires different mixes of aggregate and different, most often longer, curing and setting times. This impacts the time required to ‘finish’ the concrete, which is the final and a critical part of all continuous concrete pours.

    On days when it is possible to have active concrete work, we can expect later working hours, which may extend to 11 pm, midnight or possibly later. However, if the wind is too strong and/or if there’s heavy snow, concrete work may be cancelled.

    When there is late evening concrete finishing, the crane lights will stay on later to ensure the safety of the crews working on the top level of the building. To ensure the safety and feasibility of this critical work, the crane lights will stay on until the work is being completed, afterwards the crane lights will be turned off.
