"Dowbuilt began working with Spearhead in 2004, and over the last 20 years, we have collaborated on more than 70 projects across the U.S. and Canada. Spearhead is our most important off-site fabrication partner, and the quality of their work is unmatched. Their design assistance during pre-construction is crucial to the success of our projects. When we work with Spearhead to pre-fabricate elements of a build, it increases the speed of installation and accuracy on site while reducing project risk. This is especially important on complicated roof assemblies and on remote job sites where skilled labor is scarce."

Spearhead played a pivotal role in developing a framing strategy to address the 30-foot cantilever and knife-edge roof profile this project called for. An adjustable truss was developed for the roof system to enable “tuning” the structure through the construction process to ensure precise tolerances could be achieved in the finished product. Spearhead supplied a comprehensive scope of fabricated components, including primary and secondary framing, complete with pre-cut penetrations for MEP, glazing, and envelope. This coordinated approach helped substantially reduce the project duration and mitigate risk associated with skilled labour shortages on island.
