The Construction Zone


Mayfair Toronto Parkway

After a successful renovation to the Mayfair Toronto Lakeshore Club in 2015, Dalton is leading a complete renovation of the Mayfair Toronto Parkway Club locker rooms following damage from a fire. With 8,500 sq. ft. of space, the locker rooms will feature full amenities including showers, whirlpools, saunas, steam rooms, change areas and washrooms.

Led by Coy Davidson, Project Manager, and Jeff Ranieri, Site Manager, progress is going well. A project of this nature usually faces challenges when fire damage is involved, but the overall project is moving forward with the final stretch beginning in May. This month, we can expect the tiling, resilient flooring, locker, door, glazing and washroom partition installations as well as the completion of the painting and drywall.

Aurora United Church

Great news from the site of the new Aurora United Church! Last week, three tractor trailers of steel arrived with more to come. The steel erection and steel decking will take place over the next two months and by June, drywall framing will begin. If you drive by the site located at 15186 Yonge Street, look out for Dalton's sign on the east elevator shaft. "We are extremely excited to have steel on site. The installation is going smoothly and the general attitude on site it positive," says William Dobson, Site Manager.

Progress of the modular building foundation is moving quickly with the completion of the concrete piers seen below. The next step is the concrete pour for the slab on grade forming a heated crawl space underneath the modular building for future infrastructure access including plumbing. The diagram below depicts the various aspects of the structural foundation with the footings, slab on grade and the attachment of the steel beams. Along with the foundation, Fred, Site Manager, will be overseeing the interior work for the existing building tie-ins.

Past Project Spotlight


Bata Shoe Factory Lofts

In 1939, Thomas J. Bata, relocated himself and 100 families from Czechoslovakia to Canada establishing the Bata Shoe Company of Canada forming a quaint village around the factory known as Batawa, Ontario. Of the roughly 16 'Bata-Villes' worldwide, Batawa became a thriving community and by 1989, the factory employed 1,500 people, at one point producing up to 4.6 million pairs of shoes annually.

In 2014, Dalton was hired by Batawa Development Corporation to transform the original Bata Shoe Factory into a 85,380 sq. ft. mixed-use residential building boasting 47 luxury residential units with an emphasis on sustainability.

The scope of work included the addition of 52 balconies, a lobby with a floating staircase, a 16,800 sq. ft. rooftop patio and entirely new services, electrical and mechanical systems— including a geothermal heating system. The geothermal system involved drilling 63 holes at 600 ft.— quite a unique process to capture heat from the earth underground. Read more about this incredible adaptive reuse project on our blog.
