At LRutt Contracting we love challenging projects. Our team is always up for something different, and we excel at finding solutions for construction challenges. Check out a few of our more unique projects below:
Project: Bridge Road Pump Station
Location: Vancouver, BC
Duration: May - July, 2019
The new Bridge Road Pump Station, set to complete in 2020, will serve the North Shore municipalities of West Vancouver, the City of North Vancouver and the District of North Vancouver waste water treatment plant. Our crew installed shotcrete to the secant pile walls. This project put our team in close spaces with tight finish tolerances, working in aerial lifts on walls up to 37' high. We installed a total of approximately 10,000 square feet of shotcrete to the radius walls.
Project: Hammersley Pump Station
Location: Aggasiz, BC
Duration: February - April, 2019
This technical project required the installation of radius lining shotcrete to the two pump station troughs. The screws that pump the water up and over the dike to the other side were then installed, and an additional 2 inches of radius lining grouting work was carried out to finish up the process.
Project: Mainland Sand & Gravel Upper Crusher Shotcrete
Location: Abbotsford, BC
Duration: October - November, 2018
This project required the installation of upper crusher shotcrete foundation walls. We applied approximately 200 cubic meters of wet shotcrete, facing challenges of restricted access, and shotcrete up to 2 meters thick in some areas.
Project: Evergreen Line Tunnel
Location: Port Moody/Coquitlam, BC
Duration: March to May 2016
Our team installed the separating wall down the length of the Evergreen Line Tunnel from Clark Street in Coquitlam to Barnett Highway in Port Moody. The scope of the work included 12,000 square metres of shotcrete wall installation in less than 38 days.
We installed the shotcrete on 15mm rebar placed on a 200x200mm grid. The thickness was 150mm, thickening to 250mm at some points.
Project: Crescent Slough Culvert Rehabilitation
Location: Ladner, BC
Duration: February to March 2013
To reinforce the existing deteriorating multiplate culvert under Highway 17 in Ladner BC, silica fume dry mix vertical and overhead shotcrete were installed 200mm thick to line and fortify the culvert. This project required tight access to set up the dry shotcrete equipment, and the added challenge of a height restriction within the culvert.
Project: Bennett Dam Slope Stabilization
Location: Hudson Hope, BC
Duration: February to October 2012
The LRutt team completed work on the west and east faces of the Bennett Dam spillway above the flip bucket. All work was completed out of a custom crane basket. The project provided challenges, working out of a crane basket to scale loose rock, pressure wash the rock face and apply two layers of steel fiber silica fume shotcrete to an area of approximately 3,800 metres squared. The height from the top of the spillway to the bottom was approximately 60 metres, requiring application of 1400 cubic metres of shotcrete.
