We have provided geotechnical engineering and materials testing services for Northern Health and Interior Health, for new developments and additions to existing facilities. These include new hospitals in Fort St. John and 100 Mile House, major additions to the University Hospital of Northern B.C. in Prince George and for the new B.C. Cancer Centre for the North in Prince George. We also completed geotechnical reports for hospitals in Burns Lake and Village of Queen Charlotte as background for Design-Build contracts.
Schools & Universities
Our predecessor completed the initial investigations and provided geotechnical recommendations for development of the original University of Northern British Columbia campus, an approximately 35 ha development that included seven of the initial large campus buildings, roads, parking areas, the power plant and student residence. Since then we have provided geotechnical services for several new buildings. We have also provided engineering services to School Districts from 100 Mile House to the Peace River Region, and Terrace to McBride.
In 2005, we carried out site investigations and provided geotechnical recommendations to lengthen the main runway in Prince George, Runway 15-33, from 7,400 to 11,300 feet. We also carried out investigations and provided recommendations for two major upgrades to the Terminal building, improvements to passenger parking areas and aircraft taxiways and aprons. Other work includes additions to the Smithers Airport Terminal and ancillary buildings, and the B.C. Ministry of Forests Fire Fighting facilities in Prince George and Fort Nelson.
Other (Public Buildings)
Our experience with industrial foundations in a wide range of geological settings and with varied loading conditions and deformation constraints has aided in our ability to provide practical solutions for other institutional buildings, including swimming pools, fish hatcheries, office buildings, an art gallery, libraries, arenas and civic centres.
