“When we were awarded the design/build contract for the New Glasgow/Westville Regional Police Services Facility, we were faced with a number of challenges. As well as a need for high security and superior sound insulation, the project had a very tight construction schedule that required erecting the building over the winter months.

With Arxx, we were able to pour a high quality concrete wall in January. We closed the building in, and the crews worked inside through February and March in their shirtsleeves.

Throughout the project, Eric Pineault and the staff of Bird and Stairs proved invaluable with their ongoing technical support.”

Robert Higgins Construction

It wasn’t a major feat winning us over. Higgins is using progressive products such as the Arxx Wallsystem – if you tell me you’re going to build a concrete wall and it is insulated, this is well suited to the design of the building. It’s a terrific building!”
