Lynnview Ridge Construction

APPROACH:

We began by isolating the site with temporary fencing, and setting up construction signage. Close stockpiles of clay were hauled using scrapers for cost and time efficiencies, and material stored off-site was trucked to site. Fences, curbs, catch basins, manholes, and monitoring wells were adjusted or replaced without any disturbance to the impacted soils.

OUTCOME:

The client and residents, who had a number of concerns about the project, were satisfied when the project was complete. The site was designed and constructed to yield an easily managed and attractive green area for the community to enjoy.

West Pine Creek Feedermain and Sanitary Trunk Project

APPROACH:

Our plan was to work through the flowing sand section using a deep sump dewatering system, however the soil was so unstable that we couldn’t get the system installed without first stripping out the wetland soil, using fill to create a workable base, then excavating through the fill. In collaboration with our Earthworks division, the plan changed to a well point dewatering system as the deep sump system wasn’t performing.

OUTCOME:

Despite the many challenges, we finished on time and significantly under budget. Our crew’s technical experience expanded, and we built a relationship of trust with the client. As a forward thinking collaborator, we were able to dynamically change our original plans based on the site conditions, and not let the change affect the timelines or budget. In fact, in the end, we saved the City of Calgary $4,817,000.
