Dalren Limited specializes in the following types of construction services:

 

Stipulated Price

In the stipulated price or lump-sum contract, a predetermined amount is agreed upon for the entire work. The contract is between the owners and the contractor (Dalren Limited), who performs the required work for a single, pre-determined fixed price or lump sum. Completed drawings and specifications are provided by the owner and a lump-sum price agreed upon.

We have performed hundreds of projects utilizing the Stipulated Price delivery method.

Project Examples:
Consecon Fire Hall
LCBO Pembroke
Harry J Clarke P.S. Addition
Trades Training School

 

Design-Build

The standard contract between an owner and a design-builder is a “Design-Build Stipulated Price Contract.” In this contract, the design-builder (Dalren Limited) is responsible for design services and construction under one agreement, for a single, predetermined stipulated or fixed price. Dalren Limited has an in-house architectural designer on staff and has performed many Design-Build contracts.

Project Example:
Weetabix Expansion Project

 

Pre-Engineered Structures

As an alternative to traditional buildings, Pre-engineered Steel Buildings offer design flexibility to suit various needs within a strict budget. More than ever, these steel buildings offer a wide selection of roofs, walls, frames and accessory items that will meet your functional and aesthetic requirements.

The buildings are pre-engineered and therefore reduce the need for additional sub-trades, resulting in savings that can be measured in time as well as money.

Dalren Limited is a Certified Dealer for Robertson Building Products, a leading designer in Pre-Engineered Structures.

Project Example:
Selwyn County Garage Addition

Green Building

The LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system promotes an integrated building design approach grounded in five LEED® categories: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, and Indoor Environmental Quality. Dalren Limited recently completed the construction of the William E. Hay Centre, New Trades Training Building that is scheduled to achieve LEED® Silver designation and welcomes the opportunity for other LEED® construction projects. Many of our staff have been trained in environmental best practices, and how to complete a LEED project, both from an on-site perspective, as well as from an administrative perspective

Project Example:
William E. Hay Centre – Trades Training Building

 

Insulated Concrete Form Structures (ICF)

Insulated concrete forms (ICF) are a system of formwork for reinforced concrete made with a rigid thermal insulation that stays in place as a permanent interior and exterior substrate for walls, floors, and roofs. The forms are interlocking modular units that are dry-stacked (without mortar) and filled with concrete. The units lock together and create a form for the structural walls or floors of a building. ICF construction can be used for both low rise commercial and high performance residential construction as more stringent energy efficiency and natural disaster resistant building codes are adopted.

Dalren Limited is a certified Fox Block ICF installer.

Project Example:
IPSC Building – Trenton Air Base
