Factories and hydro dams, mines and bridges, we are proud to have been a part of the teams that poured the foundation for some notable industrial and civil infrastructure developments throughout British Columbia.
MacMillan Bloedel Technical Centre
We constructed the $7million retrofit to an existing automotive plant in Discovery Park in Burnaby, which now houses MacMillan Bloedel's Technical Center for Research and Development. The glass enclosed staircase is a work of art, using parallam columns as tree trunks to support both the staircase and the tree tops which support the roof structure. As with all custom wood frame structures we do our own detailing, shop drawings, fabrication and erection, all using in-house forces.
Westmin Resources Ltd.
Tailings Pond, Campbell River BC Ore mined at a depth of 1500 feet is conveyed to the surface and processed to extract minerals. Resultant rock waste slurry, called tailings is piped to a containment area referred to as a pond and stored on dry land. We constructed 45 acres of tailings ponds for Westmin Resources that required the diversion and relocation of mountain creeks and valley rivers, installing extensive underground drainage piping in order to restrict the leeching of the waste slurry into the mine’ surrounding ecosystems.
Bay Street Bridge, formerly Pt. Ellice Bridge, Victoria BC
Spanning the Upper Harbour, the Bay Street Bridge joins the City of Victoria with the Township of Esquimalt.
