On March 25, 2011, Hall Constructors was awarded the contract to perform slope stabilization works above the spillway at BC Hydro’s WAC Bennett Dam near Hudson’s Hope, BC. This project will consist of blasting and excavating over 230,000 cubic yards of rock as well as installing anchors and shotcrete on the final slopes above the spillway. Upon completion of the blasting, protective rock mesh will be installed to further minimize the possibility of rock fall. This project was completed in November, 2011.
A brand new 4 direction interchange was constructed on HWY 99 at 16th Avenue. The project required the relocation of Ferguson and Carlson Creeks. Two pre-cast panel walls were required for north and southbound off ramps, the later requiring a curved wall. Property acquisitions were untimely so a temporary stream channel had to be constructed to bypass an entire portion of the project site for several months. The project was completed 2 months ahead of schedule.
John Hindle Drive is a Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure project that is also partially funded by the City of Kelowna and the University of British Columbia. Scope of work includes construction of a new 1.8 km roadway that connects the Glenmore Landfill with UBC Okanagan as well as a 2.8 km separated bike pathway parallel to the roadway alignment. Total excavation quantities amount to 147,000 m3 of cut to fill. Utility upgrades include 500mm and 300mm water main connections, as well as Fortis Gas distribution, Fortis Electric, Telus and Shaw fibreoptic.
A new offramp was constructed to provide direct access to the Boundary Bay Airport via HWY 99 Southbound. The Ladner Trunk Interchange also required some interim upgrading to facilitate an acceleration lane for HWY 99 Northbound. This required shoring of the north abutment fill slope and preloading of all new construction with about 35,000m3 of preload. This project was completed on schedule.
Construction of 40,000 m3 Earthen Flood Dyke, installation of sheetpile flood wall, relocation of existing utilities. Emergency access from Mary Hill Bypass including 12,000 m3 of Granular fill, an open bottom Arch culvert with Retaining Wall. Many difficulties presented themselves on this project, the most prevalent were sourcing and placing specified dyke fill material, driving plastic sheet piles into heavily consolidated ground plus working in and around a heavily secured facility.
The objective of the works was to create northbound and southbound passing lanes on 2.80km new alignment with the existing highway becoming frontage road. The major work carried out on this project is: - 25,000 cubic metres of excavation - 19,000 cubic metres of gravel - 17,500 tonnes of paving - 2.4 km of roadside cable barrier Other components of this project include Quality Management, Environment Management, drainage, signage and intersection lighting.
Scope of the project was to place two individual classes of aggregate to a total depth of 2.17 meters for the total length of the 2000 lm of bored tunnel.
Highway widening and intersection improvements including 1,500m2 of retaining walls, 36,000m3 of excavation, drainage and sanitary sewer works, street-lighting and signalization.
Hall Constructors is completing the offsite civil work on this project for Onni. The work includes new curb, sidewalk and asphalt for the road surrounding the site, as well as extensive BC Hydro, street light and intersection signal upgrades. Hall has worked extensively with the Owner, City and local businesses to ensure that construction is safe and that disruptions are kept to a minimum. This is especially important due to the close proximity of the Lions Gate Hospital, city hall, fire hall, RCMP detachment and surrounding residential buildings.
Commercial truckers travelling through the Lower Mainland now have a convenient place to stop and rest, as the $2.8-million Nordel Way truck parking facility was officially opened today by Delta North MLA Scott Hamilton, on behalf of Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone. “With so much of our economy relying on the movement of goods via truck, this facility is an important addition to our transportation infrastructure,” said Stone. “This is a safe, convenient place where drivers can take a break or grab a rest, and provides a good option for those who would otherwise park on a local street.” The new truck-parking facility is located on Nordel Way at Highway 91 in Delta, across from the Nordel commercial vehicle inspection facility. The facility has room for up to 40 heavy trucks to park overnight and includes lighting, washrooms, garbage cans and a sani-dump. Construction began in August and was complete on Nov 10 2016
