Dorval - Multi-tenant Phase 1
Address: Chemin Saint-François, Dorval
Completion date: 2008
Building area: 127,415 sq.ft.
Broccolini completed phase 1 of its design-build project of an industrial multi-tenant building in Dorval. With a total surface area of 112,100 square feet, the steel structure building includes 15,500 square feet of mezzanine space and its exterior envelope consists of metal siding, brick and curtain walls.
The building's main tenant is Mueller Flow Control, working in collaboration with Broccolini for the first time. The valve, pipe and fire safety equipment distributor occupies 78,230 sq.ft. of the project's total surface area as well as a 7,000 sq.ft. mezzanine. The warehouse space contains several storage racks and shelving installed under the supervision of a contractor with whom Broccolini had to carefully coordinate in order to avoid conflicts with the building's various mechanical components, plumbing, HVAC and electrical systems.
The second tenant is ABB, a supplier of power and automation technologies for whom Broccolini had already designed and built a building in Lachine in 2007. ABB occupies 33,870 sq.ft. of the surface area and an 8,500 sq.ft. mezzanine. In order to meet this client's needs, Broccolini had to redesign the building's steel structure to accommodate 6 bridge cranes, each weighing between 2.5 to 10 tons, located throughout the facility's Power and Turbo section.
This accomplishment required a big coordination effort in order to meet the project's deadlines and allocated budget. Once the bridge cranes were designed, the ceilings were modified so that the employees could use the cranes' hooks and handle the objects in the Turbo section's rooms. Work began on the project in May 2008 and was completed in the fall of the same year.
