The Toronto Transit Commission’s #1 LRT line runs very close to a condo development in the Stockyards District of Toronto, at St. Clair Avenue West and Weston Road. The existing wooden sound barrier had deteriorated with such large gaps that it was no longer doing its job. A replacement was badly needed.
Naturally, the owner was looking for a longer-lasting alternative for its replacement. AIL Sound Walls checked off all their boxes:
- Long-lasting PVC construction in attractive colors
- Impermeable to weather
- Will not rot, rust or stain
- Sustainable and maintenance free
- Lower installed cost
Helping the customer through the process
The owner was unfamiliar with sound barrier wall projects, so the AIL Sound Walls team worked closely with them to ensure they got the best possible outcome. We connected them with companies (designers, surveyors, contract managers) to get the information that was required. This helped them generate a clear scope of work for bidding and execution.
The initial bid was over budget, however, so we worked with the owner to revisit the design and execution of the install. We got the project numbers to fall in line and the customer got the solution they were looking for — an economical, smart-looking and effective sound barrier wall that will last for many decades.
