The Bow 6th Avenue Trench Remediation

Project Description:

We put our best problem solvers on this one! Below this downtown sidewalk is a parkade that needed waterproofing repairs. The project consisted of removing and replacing the sidewalk, gravel and insulation, replacing the waterproofing and reinstalling the insulation, gravel and sidewalk and curbs. The challenge was securing the formwork without sidewalk pins! We used over 200 weighted pails to act as ballast formwork support. It was a challenge to form and pour this way but the end result was excellent! Our scope on this project included sawcut and removal of all concrete, removal, store and re-use the gravel and insulation, install formwork, supply and install reinforcing and concrete for replacement sidewalk and curbs.
