Humber College - Barrett Centre for Technology Innovation, Toronto

The Barrett Centre for Technology Innovation is a multi-use, five storey, 93,000 square foot building on the campus of Humber College, Toronto.

  • Building Type: College
  • Contractor: Urban Electrical
  • Services: Electrical

This building is a collaborative facility where teams from the college and community can solve real-world problems with the help of technological innovations, software, and equipment.

Traditionally, Urban Electrical would have used a standard threaded rod and strut system to support the cable trays. On this project, Gripple’s UniGrip Hanger was chosen specifically for its ease of installation to hang not only the cable trays, but the conduit racks as well. In addition, it was the perfect solution for creating single and double-tiered suspension configurations.

The main benefit that Gripple products offered the contractor on this project was time savings. Urban Electrical had received instructions that specific areas of the building needed to be turned over to the owner ahead of schedule, and Gripple’s ease of installation allowed the contractor to make that possible.

“Labour is the biggest part of any job. The Gripple system can speed the installation process significantly.”
