Hall Constructors completed the site preparation and bulk excavation for Marcon Construction on the Portraits project in Burnaby. The work for this residential condo development involves diverting the existing underground utilities, bulk excavation of 17,000 m3, shoring, detail excavation and extending the existing creek through the property. The creek work was executed during the DFO’s fisheries window to minimize impact on the existing fish habitat.
This 40,000 m3 excavation and shoring project made wade way for a high-rise residential tower in Burnaby’s Brentwood neighborhood, which was managed by Marcon Construction. Under approval from Environment Canada, Hall Constructors implemented ocean disposal of the clean, excavated material, as this is the most effective and economical option for the Owner.
Hall Constructors completed this 43,000 m3 excavation and shoring project for Mondiale Development in 2013. The site was located on the historical ocean shoreline and had previously been infilled with contaminated material. Hall worked with the Owner and Environmental Consultant to send all contaminants to appropriate remediation facilities, then obtained approval from Environment Canada to dispose of the clean, native material via ocean dumping.
Hall Constructors completed this 13,000 m3 excavation for Metro-Can Construction in North Vancouver. Contaminated soil was identified at the outset, and Hall worked through the remediation process with the Owner to minimze costs and delays. Though the ground conditions were difficult and the access was very limited, Hall completed the bulk excavation, shoring and detail excavation for a successful handover to the form work contractor.
Hall Constructors was contracted by Chysik Project Management to complete the excavation and shoring for the sedoncd phase of a townhouse development on Royal Avenue in New Westminster. Hall utilized the sloping grade surrounding this site to complete the 7,500 m3 excavation quickly and efficiently. Attention to detail was necessary for the shoring on the zero wall which was constructed on three sides of the site.
This property at Main St and King Edward Ave in Vancouver was previously occupied by a gas station resulting in widespread gasoline contamination in the site soil. Although the majority of the soil within the property was removed as part of the initial remediation process by others, Hall identified and removed remaining soil that had contamination levels exceeding acceptable standards. The remaining 3,500 m3 of material was used to build ramps and pads to complete the pile driving and shotcrete shoring. Upon completion of the shoring, all excess material was hauled off site and detail excavation was completed for the foundation of this mixed-use residential development.
The construction of this new mixed-use residential development in White Rock, BC was managed by Macron construction, with the excavation and shoring completed by Hall Constructors. Contaminated soil was encountered at the outset of the 14,000 m3 excavation and sent to a remediation facility for proper disposal. The features of this project were the raking shores and pile driving, which were implemented for one wall where conventional shoring was not possible.
Hall Constructors completed the excavation and shoring for this townhome development at 6th Ave & Alder St in Vancouver, working with Chysik Project Management. Tight working constraints, hard sandstone boulders and extremely steep grade of the site added to the complexity of the project.
This new UBC mixed development is managed by Ledcor Construction. The building will serve as residence and lecture hall for students. Excavation began in late January 2012, and was completed in May 2012. The total excavation volume of this phase was approximately 17,000m3. The challenges of this project were the pedestrian traffic management and aggressive schedule objectives.
Construction started in January 2012. The Sesame is a new East Vancouver residential development by Marcon Construction Ltd. Hall Constructors was responsible for the excavation, shoring and mechanical trenching of the four storey wood frame structure with two levels underground parkade. The excavation of 200m3 of bed rocks and the traffic management of adjacent shopping center traffic were some of the challenges we faced during this project. The total excavation volume was approximately 16,000m3 and was completed in May 2012.
