" We worked very closely with our
engineer and were able to make enough
modiications to our standard Solar System
to get a snow load of 60 pounds per square
foot, " says Renaud. " This snow load is a
roof snow load, not ground snow load. As
per the Canadian Building Code, this snow
load includes a rain load since we now very
often receive rain in the winter, which adds
weight to the snow accumulation. Also, the
Canadian Building Code does not allow for
a reduction factor when heating the tent. "
The modiications Fiesta made in order
to reach such a high snow load included
using a strong 4-by-6-inch extrusion for a
30 foot wide tent with 10-foot bay spacing
instead of 15 feet, as well as adding
interior uprights and braces. Additionally,
several large purlins were added in each
bay to support the roof panels and the
snow accumulation.
The second challenge was ensuring the
doctors, nurses and of course patients
were comfortable inside the tent at all
times, even with temperatures of -20
degrees Fahrenheit outside. " Fiesta came
up with ways to improve the airtightness
of the tent by closing the gap at the top of
the sidewalls, fastening pieces of vinyl to
cover small openings near the base plates
and rafters and building the loor with a
layer of insulation between two layers of
plywood, " Renaud explains. " We worked
closely with our partner Via Construction
to help them plan how they would
integrate the interior insulation. "
The result was a completely seamless
transition from the hospital into the
trauma center annex. " Patients don't even
realize they're inside a tent, even in the
heart of the winter, " says Renaud.
Incredibly, the construction of a fully
functional trauma room was completed
in just three weeks. " The hospital was
extremely happy with the end result as
well as the quick turnaround time, " says
Renaud. " We started the installation at the
beginning of October 2020 and the trauma
center is still in use today. "
