Excavation and shoring for a senior care home living complex. This project included the construction or permanent shotcrete walls that were finished to match the natural rock outcrops in the area.
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.
Hall Constructors was contracted by Metro-Can Construction to complete this 25,000 m3 excavation & shoring project. The bottom half of the excavation proved difficult as significant groundwater was discovered as digging progressed. Conventional pumping could not keep up to the water in the sandy ground, and Hall worked with the Owner to install a dewatering system to lower the local water table. In the end, Hall wrapped up another successful project by craning their excavator out of the excavation.
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.
Scope of work includes ** Watermain upgrade, ** Demolition of existing sidewalk, road structure and concrete slab, replaced with new landscaping features and concrete pavers. ** Construction of a new 450m3 cast in place concrete detention tank.
This project consisted of an approximate 14,600 m3 Bulk & Detailed Excavation including Shotcrete & Anchor shoring system. The challenge for this project was working very near sensitive utilities including several 600 KVolt lines and associated vaults. Extra caution was necessary but also ensuring the project was completed as scheduled.
Hall Constructors was contracted by Ventana Construction Corp. to complete the excavation and shoring for this new development which includes ground floor commercial with residential condos above. Since anchors could not be drilled at one corner of the site, Hall installed a steel bracing system to retain wall of the excavation. Hall also brought in additional equipment to break through the bedrock and boulders that were present at the bottom of the excavation.
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.
This 14,000 m3 excavation & shoring job for Marcon Construction was completed on schedule and on budget in 2015 by utilizing their ocean disposal facility. Special care was taken to retain and underpin a heritage building on the corner of the site.
