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.
• 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.
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.
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
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.
