SCOPE OF WORK
1,375m² of permanent rock carved shotcrete
487 permanent hollow core anchors (5,300m of anchors total)
The Partington Creek development on Burke Mountain in Coquitlam required a number of retaining walls to be constructed for the development. The retaining walls consisted of Allen Block Walls, Stone Strong Walls and permanent shotcrete retaining walls.
On the project Southwest Contracting Ltd (SWC) installed 3 permanent retaining walls as part of 2 different phases of the overall development. The permanent retaining wall H consisted of permanent DCP anchors with a 200mm thick temporary shotcrete facing. Once the temporary shotcrete facing was installed it was overlaid with a permanent architectural shotcrete facing. The client for this project specified a natural rock look for the permanent shotcrete.
