Angus Drive Water Main

AngusDrive

Partners: MetroVancouver

Contract Value: $9,500,000

Estimated Completion: Spring 2015

Begun in March 2014, the Angus Drive water main is a 3.5 Km long, 5 foot-diameter main that requires excavation up to 7 metres deep through an existing residential community and several arterial intersections in south Vancouver. Our works on this project include the excavation and installation of the water main as well as street upgrades along the alignment. Due to the importance of the area to local commuter traffic, careful coordination with the City of Vancouver, Vancouver City Police and MetroVancouver is an important ongoing aspect of the project. And because of the complexity of the excavation itself, Matcon has leveraged our participation in this project to include additional training for several of our employees on deep excavation rescue procedures.
