Kearl Oil Sands Project
Provided supervision and construction of monopole foundations set on screw piles. Over 70 caps ranging in different sizes were installed. Some of the largest caps were 45 feet square and 7 feet high.
Location: Fort McMurray, Alberta
Dates: September 2009 to January 2010
Constructed foundations for transmission lines connecting a substation to the grid. Drilled caissons ranged from four-feet diameter to eight-feet diameter and reached 40 feet down. Mitigation measures had to be taken to preserve a hawk nest along the right of way. Busy roadways near the work site also proved challenging, but the project was completed successfully on time, on budget and without incident.
Location: West of Burstall, Saskatchewan
