Case Studies


SHLD Firewall systems vs. traditional cinder block

Medicine Tree Manor Case Study

ONE6 is a mixed-use development designed to include 103 residential rental homes and retail tenants. Our team worked with Strategic Group, a fully-integrated real estate developer in Calgary, to deliver a solution to reduce time and trades on-site.

the challenges

The site for One6 was a challenge mainly due to the land configuration, size, and access.

  • The project demanded fast installation due to access limitations and zero lot line location.
  • Cinder block required additional trades, 4 weeks on-site, scaffolding, and hoarding during winter months.

    the solution

    Reduce time and tradespeople on the job site by replacing cinder block assembly with pre-fabricated SHLD  Firewall assembly.

    the results

    Hours with crane

    Each manufactured in a climate-controlled facility to avoid weather delays.

    A completely cinder block and concrete-free solution!

    hours on-site

    SHLD firewall panelized systems made it possible to fully install 3 shafts in 7.5 hours!

    reduced labour


    Off-site manufacturing systems reduced on-site trade requirements to only four installers.

    Less equipment


    Eliminated the need for scaffolding, hoarding and only required one crane to complete.

    time & cost savings

    The fast installation and low on-site labour demands lowered overall project costs.
