Vancouver International Airport (YVR) Core Project is one of the largest expansion Projects currently underway at YVR. This Project includes a new Central Utility Building, a new Ground Transportation Facility, relocation and installation of new utilities, installation of electrical duct-bank and district energy piping (connecting the Central Utility Building to the Terminal). HALL's scope includes excavation of both buildings, construction of two pump stations, all utility relocates, installation of all new utilities including electrical duck-banks, district energy pipes, backfill around the buildings, tunnelling across the main road, demolition of existing pump station and associated works. A part of work is within the terminal.
G3 Terminal is a new export grain terminal currently under construction in North Vancouver. HALL is responsible for delivering all excavation and civil works (approx. $25M contract) which started in March 2017 with expected completion by October 2019. HALL is responsible for delivering all civil aspects including:
Overall HALL's contribution has helped G3 deliver this grain terminal and will help ensure global competitiveness in moving agricultural commodities from Canada into the World Markets. Primary materials handles at the new facility will include wheat, soybeans, canola, peas and corn.
Project consists of select demolition of the Penticton Regional Hospital, bulk/detailed/mechanical excavation for the New Patient Care Tower and Parkade, lock block and secant pile retaining wall systems and site servicing (vital power duct bank, propane and oxygen feeds, water main, and drainage).
Offsite work includes installation of storm, sanitary, water, hydro/tel and gas mains on busy West Mall and Agronomy Road around the new Vantage College facilities. Trench excavation up to six meters deep, conflict avoidance with existing utilities, and traffic management present constant challenges for the crew. Onsite work includes installation of storm, sanitary mains as well a 175m3 sistern system consists of 2.4m x 2.4m segments of precast box culvert 5m deep, all done in extremely confined space.
Re-development of Shopping Centre site including offsite/onsite servicing, grading, curb & sidewalks, paving, Hydro-Tel and streetlighting.
Parking Facility - Earthworks, drainage, graveling and paving. Main challenge was working on Campus with a multitude of other Tradespeople. This required extra vigilance for operators to be aware of who is around them.
Excavated and hauled offsite 46,000 m3 of non-contaminated and 10,000 m3 of contaminated (CL+ & RL+) soil. Placed 11,000 m3 of imported fill. In addition, 3,700m2 of SedimentLok 200+ m2 of SierraScape retaining wall were built for erosion control and slope stablization. Job completed on budget and ahead of schedule.
Clearing, excavation, granular fill, gravel installation, and asphalt paving. BD Hall proposed a modification of pavement structure which permitted installation of asphalt paving within three weeks of startup during busy paving season - this allowed Finning additional time to re-position equipment to other facilities prior to arrival of new equipment.
Project included 3.5km of road re-construction, 7,000m of curb & gutter, 700m of concrete sidewalk, a roundabout, 3km of multi-use path, intersection improvements, street lighting, sewer and watermain construction, detention pond and landscape works. Scope: - Remove existing concrete and asphalt road - Reuse road concrete as base of multi-use pathway - Reconstruct road, curbs and gutters - Construct new detention pond - Lighting and signalized intersection - Landscaping
Faced with the challenge of a very tight schedule and proximity to existing facilities, the crew installed storm, sanitary, water, hydro/tel, gas mains and a 250 m3 cast-in-place concrete detention tank. The project finished on time and on budget.
