 Roof tie off hoarding, 
approximately 130 linear feet at 11 feet high

 
Greenloc worked closely with the team at North America General Contractor (NAGC) to supply and install hoarding for their Tim Hortons renovation at The Atrium on Bay – a large retail and office space in downtown Toronto. Located on the lower level of the atrium, the Tim Hortons location is positioned in a high foot traffic area that connects to the atrium’s food court. Therefore, NAGC required a quick construction hoarding solution that would be installed in a short amount of time, with as little disruption to ongoing mall traffic as possible.

The Greenloc team installed 130 linear feet in two phases over the course of two nights. The system was tied off to the roof and one single door was added to provide workers with easy access in and out of the site. Since the construction hoarding was in place for only 12 days, it was essential that the system would be installed and taken down very fast with minimum waste. As a result, traditional drywall was replaced with the Greenloc system which simply “clicks” together without the need for taping, sanding, painting, and other steps that create debris. The Greenloc panels created a clean, professional look to safely enclose the ongoing renovations of the Tim Hortons and provided a secure perimeter for workers to conduct the renovation work. The system was rented for the short duration of the project.

 

"It was a pleasure working with Greenloc. They were always available when we needed them, they catered to our every need, and the hoarding system was great. We have never seen anything like this, we love the fact that we did not need to waste any materials as all of it is reusable and the system was very quick to install. Overall we are very pleased and look forward to working together in the future.

Our commitment to sustainability
Upon completion of the TD Bank renovation, the Greenloc system will checked for quality control before being stored and reused in a different project. This is part of Greenloc’s commitment to minimizing landfill waste and increasing the amount of recycled and reused content at the construction site.

The Greenloc team and PCL Construction worked together to install 200 feet of Greenloc Hoarding at the Toronto-Dominion Centre, the largest commercial office complex in Canada. The scope of work was to provide protection to the interior area of the bank during glass window replacement.

The challenges
• To safely install the Greenloc modular structure without the use of screws or fasteners.
• To secure the area while maintaining temperature control and preventing any strong winds from tipping the hoarding.

The solutions
To ensure that the system is secure enough to withstand strong gusts of wind, the structure was installed using double sided tape on the floor and diagonal pipes to reinforce the roof to the main hoarding wall.

Relocating the Greenloc system
Greenloc played a pivotal role in ensuring that renovations can easily proceed from one area to the other. When construction was completed on the South and East elevations, the entire 60 ft by 8 ft modular structure was moved to the North and West elevations in a matter of a few hours. With traditional drywall hoarding systems, the process of install and dismantle would have taken significantly longer.

Security and insulation during bank renovations

Since Greenloc doubled as a barrier to the outside environment, the system had to be insulated to prevent warm air to escape during winter months and to keep cool air inside during summer. To allow the bank to be air conditioned and heated, small vents were cut in the lower part of the hoarding to ensure air circulation. Efficient insulation as well as sound absorption was achieved by layering Blue Styrofoam on the back of the Greenloc panels.
The Greenloc team was responsible for supervising and training workers to install and dismantle the panels. Workers quickly became familiar with the system and were able to complete installation and dismantle after hours to avoid any disruption to the bank’s operations during the day.

Freestanding interior installation
 

The Greenloc team partnered up with Shaw Communications and Ledcor to supply hoarding for the renovation of Shaw’s headquarters located in Calgary, Alberta. 500 linear feet of the Greenloc panels were used to enclose three floors of Shaw’s open atrium during renovations.

The 16 feet panels were cut down to 8 feet in order to fit the project’s custom height requirements. The Greenloc system was installed by Midwest Contracting following the Greenloc engineer approved freestanding system. One single door was also installed to provide easy access in and out of the site.
In the case of Shaw’s interior renovation project, the Greenloc panels were not covered in graphics, showing only the white surface of the hoarding to create a clean look during office renovations. Depending on project requirements, the system can be purchased or rented.

"We were excited when we came across the Greenloc system as we regularly find ourselves putting up hoarding for small renovations in our operating workspaces. We are happy to invest in a system that not only looks significantly better then the poly/plywood/drywall hoardings we usually put up, but also something we are going to be able to reuse multiple times. Everything was as promised from the ease of use, to the durability of the surface and components. The Greenloc team was quick to respond; reliable; transparent in their pricing; and clear with their details. Overall the type of Vendor that makes delivering a project easier instead of more difficult.

Rooftruss
Size: 22 feet high and 75 feet wide

The Greenloc team and Deman Corporation worked together to supply and install the Greenloc system at the Honda Plant in Alliston, Ontario. At 22 feet high and 75 feet wide, the Greenloc structure was safely attached to the roof using Greenloc’s engineer approved roof truss bracket and tapcons to secure it to the floor.

The project had to be carried out in phases in order to avoid disruption of Honda’s production. Moving the hoarding with as little interruption to daily operations as possible was a critical element of the project. This was easily achieved as the Greenloc structure was moved into its new place while reattaching it to the floor and roof with tapcons and roof truss brackets.

Another challenge was that the hoarding had to be set up in a Z-shaped orientation, with two bends, to avoid columns and other obstacles. The modular system was installed to accommodate the specific area, while covering all corners with caps to mask any remaining gaps and achieve a professional look.
