During renovations CSTM determined that the existing mezzanine level of an industrial facility did not have sufficient capacity to support the clients intended load.  We worked with the client to design the upgrades to the timber framed structure to minimize down time due to construction activities.

Open Web Timber Joist framing, Halifax, NS

Renovations of a heritage property that was being conducted required the Main floor of the home to be removed due to the condition of the timber members.  In order to maintain the an open floor plan open web timber joists were recommended.  Conventional solid timber members  would have substantially increased the overall cost  of construction.
