This 38-foot by 125-foot building was constructed quickly using Provincial Partitions’ new line of PROKIT steel pre-framed components.

It’s not difficult to recognize the benefits of working with Provincial Partitions’ new PROKIT steel pre-framed floor, wall and ceiling components, particularly when time is of the essence. For NTR Developments, a general contracting firm based in Oakville, Ont., incorporating these components into a recent project was a no-brainer. The project required a quick turnaround, so the PROKIT solution was a natural fit. But the company soon realized the many other benefits that come with this solution.

The requirements

The project required that a 38-foot by 125-foot building be constructed for the Department of Works in a local municipality. The team at NTR Developments worked closely with Adam Frankland of Provincial Partitions to draft a plan from the original architectural drawings, which assisted in the sequencing, delivery and construction of all the materials used. The team decided to use Provincial Partitions’ new line of PROKIT steel pre-framed components in the building’s construction.  

The installation

Working in less than ideal conditions, the small crew was able to assemble the building quickly in temperatures that frequently dipped below -20 degrees C. The rapid construction was made even easier with sequenced delivery because, as each component was removed from the delivery truck, the next logical piece was available for the crew. 

“All pre-framed panelized sections, floor, wall and roof sections arrived pre-assembled and stacked in a sequential manner,” explained NTR Developments’ Noah Ramia. “It took a lot less manpower on-site to do the work, and with no downtime, too!”

The PROKIT advantage

Provincial Partitions is pleased to include its patented PROKIT line of steel framing products for floor, wall and roof sections as part of its extensive product offering. One of the most obvious advantages of using its steel pre-framed solutions is that the speed of on-site construction can be reduced by as much as 80 per cent. Additionally, Provincial Partitions’ commitment to using steel is consistent with its corporate mandate to provide “green” building innovations for its entire customer base.

Using steel offers many advantages. Steel is fire resistant, rust-proof galvanized, non toxic and allergy free. It offers superior energy efficiency, no risk of termite damage, cleaner, safer job sites, reduced scrap, loose materials and disposal costs, and smaller site crews are required for installation. In addition, steel can withstand harsh climatic conditions, and results in straight walls, square corners, no drywall screw popping or cracking, and no shrinking or warping studs.
