Haul & dispose off site 25,000m3 of bulk & detailed excavation, backfill behind external perimeter walls and installation of 1,800 lm of IBO anchors and 1,000 m2 of shotcrete shoring.
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 includes removal of existing pumps and electrical works, installation of temporary lighting and ventilation system and filling this 800m long tunnel with cellular concrete.
Under contract with Onni, Hall Constructors completed this 35,000 m3 excavation & shoring project using their barge facility for ocean disposal of all clean, native material. Hall was able to work with Onni to phase the excavation and allow the formwork contractor to begin early work on the back half of the site while Hall finished at the front. This meant that the first suspended slab could be poured before the detail excavation was complete.
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
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.
Offsite work includes installation of storm, sanitary, water, hydro/tel and gas mains on busy West Mall and Agronomy Road around the new Vantage College facilities. Trench excavation up to six meters deep, conflict avoidance with existing utilities, and traffic management present constant challenges for the crew. Onsite work includes installation of storm, sanitary mains as well a 175m3 sistern system consists of 2.4m x 2.4m segments of precast box culvert 5m deep, all done in extremely confined space.
Hall Constructors was contracted by Cressey Developments to complete this 31,000 m3 excavation and shoring project associated with a new residential development on the south side of Marine Drive in West Vancouver. The bottom portion of the excavation proved difficult due to very dense sandstone and siltstone which required extensive hoe-ramming in order to break up and remove the soils from site.
Hall Constructors completed the excavation and shoring for this 118 unit condominium project, which was managed by Marcon Construction. Included in the 17,000 m3 excavation was the safe remediation of contaminated soils which were discovered during the work. As the project is located across the street from City Hall in New Westminster, much care and attention went into implementing safety measures to protect the pedestrians, vehicles and workers in this high traffic area. Hall Constructors returned to complete the road works and street lighting after the building construction was in the finishing stages.
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.
