Crane Raising Imminent as The Saint Prepares For Next Steps

Minto Communities GTA's new condo tower at Church and Lombard streets in Downtown Toronto is gearing up for the next step in its construction. Having bottomed out six levels deep earlier this month, the pit is being readied for crane installation. A square notch has been carved out of the base of the pit and filled with rebar, and a photo captured this past weekend shows a concrete pump positioned at the street-level edge of the pit with its boom extended, filling the notch and rebar cage with concrete to form the footing for the tower crane.

Construction continues to progress at The Saint site, as our team has worked into the New Year and looks ahead at what is to come. 

Following the completion of site preparation by our excavation contractor, the shoring trade mobilized to site at the end of October and began the process of splicing the piles. Drilling of piles started on November 12th and was completed just before December 25th. 

Our excavation contractor has remobilized to site at the end of December and the excavation work has been ongoing since January 4th.

The excavation and shoring work will continue until early July 2021 where the formwork contractor would mobilize to site for the erecting the tower crane and start of Formwork.

The Saint celebrated the ceremonial groundbreaking event this past month. While construction hasn’t officially begun, there’s been a lot of site preparation underway. The demolition is still ongoing at the site and with a scheduled demobilization at the beginning of October. The actual construction will start shortly thereafter depending on site conditions. This will precede approximately two weeks of work in between the excavation contractor preparing the site and building platforms for the drill rigs and the shoring contractor splicing the piles. Once that’s completed, the drilling process will begin. There’s lots to look out for in the future, be sure to follow along!
