How to build a ‘parallel construction’ system

Construction workers in Canada can build a system that allows them to build parallel buildings, according to a recent blog post by Choate Construction Canada.

Construction worker Matthew Choate told CBC News he and his co-workers built their system by connecting the foundation of a house to the foundation or walls of a building, then placing a piece of plywood on the foundation.

Choate said he was able to make the system work because he had access to the same materials and tools he used in construction.

Construction workers who use this method typically use the same tools as construction workers who do not use the system, Choate explained.

He added that the system is safe because it uses the same construction materials.

Choates system is called “parallel building.”

Construction workers can build parallel houses using different materials and building materials.
