UBC Throwback: 2005

Project: Hard Landscaping at the Iona Building, University of British Columbia Vancouver

Timeline: 2005

Ok, we had to linger on the Iona Building just a little bit longer. Although it didn't involve technical shotcrete work, one of the most interesting pieces we took part in on this project was the Maltese Labyrinth found in the garden behind the Iona building. Labyrinths are meant to be traversed in an inward pattern as the walker ponders and reflects inward in a similar fashion. It is meant to be a meditative practice.

This is one of the most interesting landscaping pieces we have ever installed. Take a look at the beautiful structure below:

This 2 month project included chipping scaling and washing to prep the slopes, then our crew drilled anchors and grouting, finally applying two layers of steel fibre dry mix shotcrete to complete the project in late September
