Szolyd worked with ISL Engineers to develop a ductal garbage bin and UHPC bench for the Quarters district in Edmonton, Alberta. Ductal was the perfect medium for the project because it provided such durabilty in extreme weather conditions. Temperatures in Edmonton vary from -30 degrees C in the winter to +30 degrees C in the summer. This means snow removal equipment and de icing salts can take a toll on conventional cement products.
The design featured Ipe wood tops, levelling feet, knockouts for LED lighting, mounting brackets for inverters and chases for the wiring. 2 production molds were build and poured over 25 times each.
