Unique restraints and tight working conditions made safety, noise and equipment paramount to this project’s success.

VanPile’s scope of work:

  • Installed a total of 53 piles (drive, auger, rebar cage and pour concrete) sized at 914 0D x 19 WT up to 34 mm in length. Sit restraints necessitated multiple splices.
  • Installed north and south abutment sheet pile wall to allow construction of pile cap (ground water issues).

Challenges:

  • Working within an operational coal terminal.
  • Adapting work schedule to trains. Piles were adjacent to tracks, stopping work whenever a locomotive car entered VanPile’s worksite.
  • In compliance with North Vancouver’s noise bylaw, hydraulic hammer had noise dampening shroud. Continual sound monitoring in select locations outside Neptune Terminals.
  • Tight work space – both south and north abutment. Situational awareness

How VanPile exceed the client’s need:

  • Flexibility in schedule and cooperation with client to finish the job in a safe
    manner.
  • Assisted whenever needed (within jurisdiction).
  • Perfect safety record: PTP, FLRHA, critical lifts forms, weekly safety meeting.
