Provincial Partitions designed a solution that can be picked up by an overhead crane and easily relocated.

Ontario Hydro required a movable in-plant office and tool crib at its nuclear power generating facility in Tiverton, Ont. The company needed to be able to easily relocate the structures to different areas of its turbine bay floor as routine maintenance was conducted on the generating equipment. Provincial Partitions had the answer. 

The solution

Provincial Partitions designed a solution — two one-piece structures that can be picked up by an overhead crane and relocated to different locations on the turbine bay floor. All equipment and furniture is able to remain inside the structures; only a simple disconnect for electrical, sprinkler and communication is required prior to relocation.

The two one-piece crane-liftable structures, each 12-feet wide by 60-feet long, were constructed at Provincial Partitions’ modern manufacturing facility in Mississauga, Ont. Each structure was designed around the principles of a bridge truss. Once all the welding was completed, standard System 40 walls were added to enclose the structures.

These crane-liftable structures are constructed of steel throughout and, therefore, are rated as non-combustible. Each structure is completely self-sufficient with electrical, HVAC, sprinkler and communication systems built-in. 

The structures were shipped via flat bed trailer directly into the generating facility, then off loaded and placed by the client using an overhead crane.
