    Unique product offerings attract unique projects and at one of our most recent opportunities in beautiful Boise, Idaho, a state-of-the-art facility found a home for one of our most specialized products. It was a couple of years ago when a sizable architectural firm in the United States reached out to us with questions regarding our high-humidity telescopic bleacher systems.

    Designed specifically for high-humidity areas such as pool decks, our product offering is very unique in its design. Constructed using a galvanized steel understructure paired with stainless-steel hardware, we are proud to be one of the very few supplying this highly specialized product in North America.

    As the need for highly-specialized padded rooms continues to grow, so too does our custom padding department. Working once again with our partners at King Carpentry - with whom we’ve done many of these rooms - our latest project brought us to the picturesque St. Lawrence Seaway.

    A call was placed from a high school in the area who saw our work in a neighbouring school and was looking to replicate the work. With a growing number of students in need of a safe and calming space to facilitate de-escalation and relaxation we were once again called to design and install a fire-rated safe room.

    Heading back to the region  of the 1,000 Islands, about 90km (56mi) from our company headquarters, is a small riverfront city our crews always look forward to working in. Close enough for a day trip, but seemingly far enough away from home to enjoy the charm of it all once you arrive.

    Working again with the City of Brockville, our team was brought in to assess the seating situation in one of the local parks. Brackenreid Baseball Park is often denoted as one of the best little league fields in southern Ontario, and with good reason.

    Officially nicknamed the “Garden City’ for its over 1,000 acres of parks, gardens and recreational trails, St. Catharines is the pride of the Niagara region, outside of the falls, of course.

    Located just 19km (12mi) from the Canada-US border, the city’s industry is dominated by manufacturing and trade, where organizations such as General Motors headquartered their Canadian operations until just a few years ago.

    As schools across North America begin to plan reopening, many are in the midst of upgrading facilities and spaces. With students learning virtually, schools have been placed in a precarious state of affairs over the past twelve months, leaving many facility managers wondering what the next steps would look like.

    As the planning process continues, we are seeing a flurry of activity as the pandemic rounds the corner and we begin to resume our daily lives in the safest way possible. In addition to athletic infrastructure such as gymnasium upgrades, our custom padding department has been working diligently on churning out new designs and custom projects.

    One such project was brought to us once again, by our partners at King Carpentry in southern Ontario. Working closely with school boards, their team is knowledgeable and effective and is quick to secure jobs and perform installations in a safe and timely manner.

    Although operating during a time where travel has been drastically reduced, we were pleased that one of our recent projects took us through the beautiful Canadian province of Québec. Heading east of our headquarters, we travelled to beautiful Sept-Îles, which as its name would suggest, is made up of seven main islands in the Gulf of the Saint Lawrence River.

    As one of the only locales in the region with a paved connection to the remainder of the province’s road network, the town is also home to a number of major iron companies. Sept-Îles has produced a number of NHL players including the great Guy Charbonneau and is the subject of the popular Gordon Lightfoot song “Seven Island Suite”.

    An Upgraded Gym Divider for Bayside Secondary School

    Posted by Ryan Wilby

    Apr 23, 2019 5:04:01 AM


    Rock and roll, bell bottoms, free love and extremely heavy folding gym partitions are just a few characteristics of the 1950s, 60s and 70s. While the former are relatively unthreatening, the latter has become one of the biggest safety concerns athletic facility operators face today.

    After serving the purpose of dividing a space for a number of decades, the fact that many of these antiquated systems are still in operation today pose a variety of safety risks to both operators and participants.

    Designed using heavy materials and often with not enough horsepower to operate them, these outdated gym dividers have made unfavourable appearances in the media over the past two decades, having caused a number of of injuries and even some deaths.

    One of our most recent projects took us to the Bay of Fundy on Canada’s East Coast to help the Boys and Girls Club, one of our favourite organizations. With locations throughout Canada and the United States, these clubs provide children and youth with life-changing programming and community-based services that aid them in developing the skills required to lead a healthy, productive life.

    We have had the pleasure of working with a number of these clubs across North America and this time, we were happy to be involved with some work at the Boys and Girls Club of Saint John, New Brunswick.
