Newton Group Ltd. is excited to announce that the Humber College Parking Structure has been named this years “Most Distinguished Project” from the American Galvanizers Association (AGA). A panel of Architects and Engineers assessed all of the projects submitted for the “2020 Excellence in Hot-Dip Galvanizing Awards” with the Humber College Structure receiving the highest honour!
The seven-storey structure which houses 1,000 parking spaces, was built with Newton Group Ltd.’s CANADACAR Parking Structure Building System. This system is an engineered and prefabricated approach which uses hot-dipped galvanized steel columns and beams to support a specialized precast concrete panel.
No Future Maintenance, which hot-dip galvanizing can provide due to its durability, is what sold the college. When a parking garage is built in a high-traffic area such as a college campus, it is nearly impossible to find a time to shut it down for repairs, especially when it can be avoided.
The facility was built using the CANADACAR Parking Structure System: a pre-engineered, prefabricated building system that utilizes the most advanced, innovative technique of construction resulting in free span modular parking bays.
Kiwi Newton Construction designed and built this state of the art facility for Linamar Corporation. The new training facility includes classrooms, a 200‐seat lecture hall, an exhibition hall, open shop training areas, an engineering lab, testing rooms, administration areas, and change and shower areas.
