Specialty Projects



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.

Skins Spillway Seismic Upgrade

We just finished work at the Skins Spillway seismic upgrade project in Ootsa Lake, BC

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


Vancouver Post Office Building Seismic Upgrade


We're working on foundation walls at the massive city block sized rehabilitation project of the historic Vancouver Post Office building

Hammersly Pump Station


We finished work on the radius lining of Hammersly Pump Station in April. Shotcrete application was carried before and after installation of the pump screws.
