The Central Park House condo, located in Burnaby's Central Park area, is a unique
residential tower that offers stunning views and a tranquil living environment. With
41 floors and a capacity for 355 residents, this sold-out development required careful
attention to detail and safety measures during its construction, and the use of PERI
formwork solutions was the clear choice for BOSA Construction.
To meet the project's tight deadlines, BOSA relied heavily on PERI's systems. BOSA Construction, used PERI's SKYDECK, SKYTABLE, MAXIMO, VARIO GT 24, ACS Core 400 Self-Climbing System, and our MULTIPROP Aluminium Slab Props. These solutions worked together to create smooth operation on site.
The underground parkade, spanning 50,000 square feet, was constructed using PERI's SKYDECK system, which allowed for efficient and speedy construction. For the typical levels of the tower, covering 12,000 square feet, were built using PERI's SKYTABLE system. This repetitive layout of large slabs not only reduced the need for wood composition but also improved productivity by minimizing labor requirements for formwork assembly and disassembly.
One of the key challenges in this project was the use of a single tower crane. To optimize its utilization and streamline the construction process, PERI's ACS Core 400 system was employed for the elevator core. This system is designed to climb
independently, using integrated hydraulics, without relying on the crane. This allowed for the quick and efficient formation of the elevator core, contributing to the overall progress of the project.
In addition, BOSA utilized PERI's MAXIMO Panel Formwork and VARIO GT 24 Girder Wall Formwork. The MAXIMO system, with its shaft corners, enabled the stripping of
the core box as a single piece, which could then be lifted by the crane in one prompt action. On the exterior walls, the VARIO system provided flexibility in the placement of
ties. This made it easier for onsite workers to locate the ties, as they ran through the panels with incorporated holes.
By prioritizing safety, efficiency, and quality, BOSA Construction and PERI collaborated to create a remarkable residential tower that will soon become home to hundreds of residents. The Central Park House condo stands as a testament to the importance of thoughtful planning and the impact that well-chosen formwork solutions can have on the successful completion of a construction project. The project is expected to be completed by May 2025.
