Irving Office Expansion

J. M. Giffin Engineering Inc was chosen as the lead structural consultant for this 42000 sq ft, 2 story expansion to the existing building. It contains a full basement level and is designed to accommodate a future 3rd story vertical expansion. The construction is reinforced concrete foundation and structural steel superstructure. In addition we were required to analyze the existing roof structure for snow build up from the future 3rd story. The following PDF file are animated images of the finished project. Animated Irving Expansion

McCain Office, Data Center and Atrium

This complex was originally built as a one storey 20,000 square foot office with a link to existing offices. The original design required the building be designed to accommodate future vertical expansion of three stories, which also included a provision to raise the atrium roof in one piece when the office was expanded. Five years after the original office was completed a second storey was added at which time the atrium roof was raised one storey, increasing the building area to 40,000 square feet.

Staples Retail Outlet

This is a 25,000 square foot retail box store. The framing is a conventional steel structure Due to the unusually low soil bearing capacity a pile foundation and 2 way slab was used in place of conventional spread footings and slab on grade.

McCain Cold Storage Facility

This project was 40,000 square foot coldstorage facility for a major food processor. The structure is a steel framed building with an eave height of 50 feet. The steel frame also includes a mechanical penthouse in the center of the building which is an additional 15 feet high. The steel frame is separated from the foundation by isolation blocks to prevent frost penetration. The floor slab is constructed on a sub base consisting of high density insulation on a “mud slab”. In floor heating is provided under the mud slab to prevent permanent frost penetration below the foundation. The building also houses a two storey office section and a forklift maintenance area.

Berwick Fire Hall

A Kentville based construction company recently completed this modern energy efficient Fire Station for Berwick NS. Giffin Engineering was proud to be chosen as the structural firm to design this wood and steel framed Structure.

Botsford St. Fire Station, Moncton NB

Partnering with a design build contractor of Moncton Giffin Engineering were the Structural Engineers for this landmark Fire Station recently completed for the City of Moncton. The building features a training tower which displays a bronze “birds nest” sculpture.
