This 19,000 m3 excavation and shoring project was completed for Marcon Construction in late 2016 and early 2017 to assist in the construction of a townhouse development along Lougheed Highway. It consisted of 6,000 lineal feet of soil anchors, and 9,300 square feet of shotcrete shoring. The biggest challenge on this job was dealing with the large amount of groundwater which infiltrated the site from the north side.
Hall Constructors was contracted by Darwin Construction to complete this 8,000 m3 excavation and shoring project associated with a new commercial development at the northeast corner of the intersection between Burrard Street and West 4th Avenue. The bottom portion of the excavation proved difficult due to very dense sandstone and siltstone which required extensive hydraulic splitting in order to break up and remove soil from site. In addition, special care was taken to ensure protection of the neighbouring surf and snowboard shop to the east.
Hall Constructors completed this excavation and shoring project for Performace Construction in 2015. At the beginning of the project, Hall worked with the environmental engineer to locate and remove over 1,000 m3 of contaminated soil and one underground oil storage tank. Once the site was remediated, Hall progressed the excavation on the small lot by using the back lane and temporary ramps to maintain access.
Hall will be completing this bulk excavation project for Marcon Construction. One portion of the excavation will be shored without the use of soil anchors, and will utilize steel beams and vertical piles to support the excavation from within the site. Hall Constructors will also be working with the adjacent fire hall to maintain their emergency service access throughout the project.
The project consisted of an approximate 13,100 m3 Bulk & Detail excavation including shotcrete & Anchor shoring. Limited access and a long and narrow site made this project a challenge to complete on schedule.
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.
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.
Hall Constructor completed this small excavation and shoring project for Cressey Developments. The major challenges on this site were working on a small building footprint with limited access and sloped surroundings. Hall also worked closely with the geotechnical Engineer to ensure that underpinning of the neighboring building and Granville St Bridge footings was done safely and correctly.
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.
