Construction Mangement Plan

Introduction

The Forest Hill is a 14 storey mixed-use residential development located at 859, 861 and 875 Eglinton Avenue West. The Site is located at the southwest corner of Bathurst Street and Eglinton Avenue West, in the City of Toronto. The proposed development includes 333 residential units and a retail component.

The existing surrounding land uses include a future mixed-use development (The Rhodes) to the south, the future site of the Forest Hill station entrance to the north, retail uses and a mixed-use building (The Hill Condominiums) to the west of Peveril Hill Street.

Construction Sequence

Shoring and excavation work will be completed by the same contractor completing the Eglinton Crosstown LRT. Bathurst/Eglinton Residences will begin work at the below-grade construction phase.

There are four main stages of construction that will commence with below-grade construction which will incorporate formwork and concrete work.  Once the structure has reached grade-level, the construction of the building structure will continue.  Upon completion of the concrete work and exterior cladding, interior finishes will be the remaining stage until the building is ready for occupancy. Nearing the end of the construction, the proposed streetscape/boulevard works will be undertaken thus bringing construction to completion.

STAGE I – BELOW-GRADE CONSTRUCTION

This stage of construction includes the following activities:

    • Completion of detailed excavation for footings and sub-slab drainage;
    • Installation of sub-slab drainage;
    • Pouring of footings;
    • Erection of tower crane;
    • Installation of Site servicing connections;
    • Installation of blindside waterproofing;
    • Pouring of foundation walls; and
    • Pouring of concrete

During the below-grade construction stage, construction vehicular activities are anticipated to be heavy. The anticipated type of construction vehicles are predominately concrete trucks.  To a lesser extent other construction related vehicles are anticipated, such as large flatbed tractor trailer trucks for steel delivery and other delivery vehicles such as single-unit trucks and typical cube-vans. Approximately 3 to 6 trade vehicles and 15 concrete vehicles per day are anticipated during this stage. Steel deliveries are expected 5 times per week and will typically be scheduled for early morning delivery.

STAGE II – ABOVE-GRADE CONSTRUCTION

This stage of construction includes the following activities:

    • Completion of above-grade structure;
    • Enclosure of building envelope;
    • Installation of roofing;
    • Installation of windows; and
    • Installation of precast masonry.

During the above-grade construction stage, construction vehicular activities are anticipated to be heavy.  The anticipated type of construction vehicles are predominately concrete trucks.  To a lesser extent other construction related vehicles are anticipated, such large flatbed tractor trailer trucks for steel delivery and other delivery vehicles such as single-unit trucks and typical cube-vans.  Approximately 8 to 10 trade vehicles and 10 to 15 concrete vehicles per day are anticipated during this stage. Steel deliveries are expected 5 times per week and will typically be scheduled for early morning delivery.

STAGE III – COMPLETION OF INTERIOR FINISHES

This stage of construction includes the following activities:

    • Erection of interior stud walls (framing, insulation, drywall);
    • Installation of internal mechanical and electrical systems;
    • Millwork;
    • Installation of flooring; and
    • Painting

During this construction stage, construction vehicular activities are anticipated to be moderate. The anticipated type of construction vehicles are predominately delivery vehicles such as single-unit trucks and typical cube-vans.  Approximately 8 to 12 trade vehicles per day are anticipated during this stage.

STAGE IV – STREETSCAPE/ BOULEVARD WORKS

This stage of construction includes the following activities:

    • Landscaping (on-grade, street boulevards, and podium structures – including terraces and green roofs);
    • Installation of new curbs and sidewalks;
    • Installation of street lighting to the internal project, with landscape structural elements;
    • Re-instatement of street furniture and utilities (if applicable) removed to facilitate construction;
    • Installation of post-construction regulatory and warning traffic signage;

Construction vehicular activities are anticipated to be low, with the majority of vehicles being dump trucks and small delivery trucks (typical cube-vans). Approximately 6 construction vehicles per day are anticipated during this stage.

Construction Management Plan

A Construction Management Plan (CMP) will be implemented during construction. The overall objective of the CMP is to address the construction logistics associated with the construction of the proposed development.

 

    • All Ministry of Labour requirements and safety polices will be strictly adhered;
    • Compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act;
    • All construction protocols will conform to City of Toronto By-Law requirements with respect to noise control, dust control and construction operation period.
    • Traffic control persons will be utilized when required to direct traffic and cyclist activity;
