Hectare to distribute precast concrete products
By Adam FreillConcrete Construction
Construction company expands offerings to include distribution of Stubbe's precast concrete products in Province of Quebec.
Hectare Construction, a specialized contractor in the development of composite structural systems combining precast concrete and steel, has signed an exclusivity agreement for Quebec with Stubbe’s to provide Hectare Construction’s clients, based in Quebec, with Stubbe’s precast concrete products. The company has been working with Stubbe’s and using its product in the province of Quebec since 2018.
The precast products are part of a new system that Hectare uses to construct multi-story structures. The system involves composite structures combining precast concrete and steel, replacing formwork and on-site cast concrete during building construction. In practical terms, it consists of hollowed-out concrete slabs combined with composite beams and columns. Since the structure is already precast, it only needs to be assembled on-site, making it possible to assemble a multi-story structure with as few as six employees, says the company.
Hectare Construction has already completed several projects across Quebec and Ontario, including a number of rental condo buildings. The four phases of the Le Pivot project, on the banks of the Saint-Charles River in the Quebec region, also use the building method. And care facilities for the elderly in Cornwall and Kemptville, as well as multi-dwelling projects like Le Zen, in Gatineau, Que., and Luxembourg – Phase IV in Quebec, have also been constructed this way.
“It is with great excitement that we announce that Hectare Construction has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Stubbe’s precast commercial, one of Canada’s leading names in the industry of precast concrete products,” stated Sébastien Boucher, associate at Hectare Construction. “Under this exclusive agreement, Hectare Construction will serve as the sole distributor of Stubbe’s high-quality products in the Province of Quebec.”
