Edmonton International Airport’s Courtyard by Marriott hotel is the first project in Canadian history to use the Girder-Slab technology.
This technology has been used on several occasions, in the U.S., and for this project it gained interest from Supreme Steel, a division of the Supreme Group, one of the most important steel manufacturers in Canada. This project is a great example of design solution opportunities made possible by a Design Assist process with regards to involving Supreme Steel, architects, engineers and owners from the beginning of the project.
While some try to set time records building steel constructions (January 2012 article), others, such as Supreme Steel, try to maximize the number of floors of a steel building within a restricted building height zone, such as on airport grounds, by using cutting edge technology like the Girder-Slab System. With the Girder-Slab System, you can lower floor-to-floor height, while still respecting ceiling height requirements.
The CadMax team is proud to have contributed to this first in Canada with its expertise in steel structure detailing. It was an exciting challenge and the results were more than satisfactory.
