Earlier in November, Ottawa general contractor Morley Hoppner co-ordinated a condo tower’s foundation pour with developer eQ Homes in a single day.
The pour included 1,990 cu. m. of concrete, 225 concrete trucks, three concrete pumps and three concrete plants. Sixty workers were on the job for 11 hours at eQ Homes Greystone Village site in Old Ottawa East, eQ Homes reported in a news release.
“A huge thank-you to the eQ Homes and Morley Hoppner team members that made the Terraces Phase 2 slab pour such a huge success,” says eQ Homes vice-president Josh Kardish. “We’re thrilled to see the project foundation set and can’t wait to welcome new homeowners to this incredible community.”
The building will be part of a 26-acre LEED-ND candidate master-planned community that when built out, will have more than 900 homes – singles, towns and condos and rentals – located among the existing historical buildings of the Edifice Dechâtelets, which were built in 1885 by the Oblates of the Scholasticate, making it the oldest and largest historical institution in Old Ottawa East.
