Dalplex Occupancy Loading, Halifax, NS


HEC became involved with this project in the spring of 2014, as part of the design team led by Kassner Goodspeed Architects Ltd. The primary project requirement was that the design team was to investigate and develop possible new ways of achieving significantly increased fire exiting capacity for the existing facility.           

HEC’s role included attendance at multi-disciplinary design team meetings, a number of site reviews and structural design in relation to three (3) determined design options. HEC, working in close conjunction with the other design team disciplines, has advised on the structural requirements for each of the design options, producing detailed sketches which were included in the design team report submitted at the conclusion of the schematic design stage.         

At the time of writing, the preferred design option has been selected by the client and the project is in the design development stage. HEC looks forward to working within the multi-disciplinary design team to bring this project to a successful conclusion.
