First Notice: Burnaby school seismic upgrades; HushFrame soundproofs wood buildings; Edmonton tackles problem properties

Burnaby schools get seismic upgrades

The Government of British Columbia is starting seismic upgrades at Seaforth Elementary School and will soon start upgrades at Parkcrest Elementary School in Burnaby, B.C. Construction is already underway for a replacement for Burnaby North Secondary, which will also feature a new neighbourhood learning centre as well as a standalone child care centre. The seismic upgrades for the three projects are expected to be complete in September 2022.

HushFrame introduces soundproofing for wood-based buildings

Boston-based HushFrame has debuted a new soundproofing technology for the wood-framed multi-housing market. A decoupling connector installs between drywall and the framing studs or joists and the silicone cores of the connectors trap noise and vibration energy as it travels through the floors, wall and ceilings of buildings, a Hushframe release stated.

Edmonton tackles problem properties for affordable housing

The City of Edmonton is launching a $1.5 million pilot program to transform “problem” properties into new affordable housing. Problem properties are defined as those with “a history of bylaw violations and non-compliance, are a risk to their tenants and a concern to their neighbours,” a City of Edmonton release stated. The program will cover up to 40 per cent of construction costs and applications are being accepted until May 24.
