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.
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.
Storm Culvert work began with the demolition of an existing concrete headwall and box culvert. The inlet structure was replaced by a fibreglass headwall and 1350mm concrete pipe connected to a 3,050mm x 3,050mm box manhole 6m deep. The 1350mm pipe was then extended 100m from the manhole and tied into an existing CMP. Installation of the box manhole proved very difficult due to the extreme wet weather, the underlying wet and soft clay supporting the box manhole and the proximity to the guideway. The Roadwork portion included grading, paving, concrete curb and gutter and street lighting on Aberdeen Avenue. Work on Barnet Highway involved realignment of traffic island to effect the change in traffic pattern entering Aberdeen Avenue.
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 Constructors is completing the offsite civil work on this project for Townline Construction. The work includes new Hydro, Telus, Shaw, street lighting and municipal service connections for the building, as well as sidewalk and road upgrades for the surrounding streets.
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.
This project consisted of a roadworks upgrade including utilities and streetlights.
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.
Installation of storm & sanitary sewers from existing lane to W 12th Ave & Cambie St to facilitate closing of existing lane to create one residential complex out of two existing lots. Construction of 4m deep sewers on W 12th Ave. & Cambie St., major arterial roads, was only permitted on select weekends during the FIFA Women's World Cup Soccer Tournament; extensive traffic planning and control; all roadways required to be patched and fully operational prior to Monday morning rush hour. Extensive existing infrastructure, often unrecorded or not as shown, required significant on-the-fly modifications to maintain schedule.
