The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is Toronto’s public transportation provider with a network of subways, streetcars and buses.
The Roncesvalles and Russell Carhouses are two of Toronto’s oldest, and most important, transportation/maintenance hubs. The project awarded to Maple Reinders was part of a phased program to address operational improvements at both car houses.
The work at Russell Carhouse consisted of a new wash-down pit to replace the existing hand-scrape and air-blast undercar cleaning system with a high-pressure water system.
The work at Roncesvalles Carhouse consisted of the installation of a second low cut platform for maintenance of the streetcars; complete with demolition work, concrete placement, electrical and mechanical work. The project was particularly challenging due to the confined work space.
Maple Reinders was awarded the contract to construct the new Somerset/Bridlewood station. With its distinct architecture, undulating roof-line and all-glass shelters, this station was a stand-out project for the City of Calgary.
Maple Reinders was hired to provide Design-Build services for a new warehousing and truck/container marshalling yard. The new facility is a 20,000 SF stand-alone building on 4.7 acres in Bolton Ontario.
The construction of the school took place while the existing Westbrook School (built in 1953) was in use for an entire school year. The contract included abatement and demolition of the existing school which was undertaken during the summer break.
