Architecture, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Structural Engineering

Corbec Inc. has chosen Hamilton’s Red Hill Business Park as the site of their fourth Canadian manufacturing facility. The industrial space will house a fully automated galvanizing system, 14 ft. deep equipment pits, as well as an office, cafeteria and washroom facilities for the 100 people the plant expects to employ. The site itself contains its own retention pond and filtration gallery for all storm water and process run-off. In collaboration with construction manager AEC (our sister company), WalterFedy is providing architecture; structural, mechanical, and electrical engineering services for the project.


During design, key design elements included hydro servicing, working on a greenfield, and designing the building shell to support the process design that occurred simultaneously. Since the equipment is entirely automated, our designers had to meet a multitude of specific criteria to ensure functionality. There are extreme tolerance requirements for the automated conveyance system – less than an inch. Any variances can throw off the system.


Construction commenced on September 1st, 2020 and reached substantial completion in February 2022.
