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.
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.
Scope of work including replacing existing 200mm watermain with 250mm, site demolition, grading, underground utilities.
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.
Excavated 3,900m3 and placed 3,400m3 of engineered fill. Job completed on schedue despite inclement weather.
