If your project has special requirements, we can deliver custom solutions that take advantage of our knowledge, product line and custom manufacturing capabilities. Here are some of the engineering services we provide:
We provide Shoring, Scaffolding and Re-shoring layout CAD drawings with Engineer's Approval and all necessory design, calculations and structural analysis using advanced computer programs.
One of our mandates is to work with our clients to develop new products and techniques to help to tackle even the most difficult of jobs, allowing the contractor to work faster and save money. The objective is to enable our clients to take full advantage of new developments to improve both construction efficiency and quality on the job site. At the same time, it is important that potential problems be identified, prior to the start of construction of a multi-million dollar job.
An example of our innovation was the creation of a 'pie shaped' fly form for Collavino International to speed up the forming of a casino/hotel with circular end shapes to the building.
Another example of how our engineers can help you is Hi-Lite's work with Ellis Don to adapt our standard aluminum scaffolding for the special requirements of the Princess Margaret Hospital project in Toronto. It had been clear for some time that single-pole shores were not suitable for reshoring floors with above standard slab to slab heights. This problem was particularly acute for the 22-storey hospital project which had floor heights varying from 11.7 to 16.9 ft.
Faced with the extensive requirement of placing scaffold frames, Hi-Lite Systems worked with Ellis Don to adapt our standard aluminum scaffolding for use as a single post shore. The result is a pole shore made from heavy duty aluminum (25 kips) frame leg components. The outer tube consists of a nine foot long section of the aluminum 25 kip per leg system and is supported on a 25 kip system screwjack (32" long)
In house testing facility with all modern equipment will serve you in testing all Shoring and Scaffolding eqiupment with test reports which satisfy CSA and SSFI standards.
We provide on jobsite services such as Equipment Installation, Trianing, Inspection, Pre-concrete Inspection and Engineer's APPROVAL.
We also provide Equipment Estimation services for your Bidding and Tendering processes. Call our engineers to talk about the special requirements of your next job. At Hi-Lite Systems we recognize that every job has its own unique challanges - let us help you "build" a solution.
