Ballymore’s contracts manager [on the Ontario Tower Project] Sean Gavin;
“For a prestigious development like the Ontario Tower we wanted to use the best system. We were aware that the UBS system had been commissioned for several of the major contracts in the City like the Wharf and the ‘Gherkin’ so it seemed sensible to use their experience in high rise construction. It’s a very effective system, but more importantly we got what we wanted, efficiency.”
