Gentrification in Washington D.C.

Here in Toronto, we hear a lot about gentrification, the conversion of older neighbourhoods to upscale condominiums, workplaces and retail spaces. The phenomenon is both intensely local, and international in scope.

World Gym, Waterloo

World Gym, Waterloo

The stretch membrane noise barrier that we erected at World Gym in St. Catharines has proven so effective that other locations of the iconic chain have planned to do the same thing in order to control sound travel.

This allows abundant air circulation, which is important, as well as conserving building materials, which is an environmentally and financially sustainable choice.
