Project Description

Beverly Caulking is currently completing a project with Stuart Olson Construction — the McMaster University Student Activity and Fitness Expansion (SAFE). The project is a four-storey building addition with over 9,730 square metres of new and renovated space. This consists of a new fitness addition, a major renovation to the existing PULSE Centre, and a new east gym with indoor synthetic turf.

The Beverly difference

The McMaster project is an intricate one that involves four types of expansion joints: vertical, horizontal, fire-rated, and non-fire rated. This requires caulkers to fully understand the characteristics and installation procedures for each application.

Most of Beverly’s work at McMaster involves firestop and smoke seal applications that are used to prevent the spread of fire and smoke through gaps and openings in a building’s walls, floors, and ceilings. These are critical for maintaining the integrity of fire-rated barriers and protecting occupants in the event of a fire.

Installing fire-rated expansion joints is a technical process that requires extensive study and practice. Beverly is one of few companies that provides this application. We take pride in our thorough training and the skill set of our staff in this area. Click here to learn more about firestop and smoke seal applications.

  • fire-rated expansion joints for floor, ceiling and wall joints;
