Project Details Biomass is renewable organic material that can be transformed into clean usable energy. A very common practice is to use biomass boilers in small scale heating systems which often burn wood chips, shavings, sawdust, and pellets to produce heat/energy. This is very sustainable and economical as these biomass sources are often byproducts from
This roadway project consisted of replacement of the water, sanitary sewer and storm sewer systems, as well as all new pavement along the entire street. The replacement of these systems will provide citizens with a more reliable water and sewer system. CAP’S ROLE We provided project engineering and project management services for this project, from
The Government of Yukon required quality and quantity control services for two warm mix asphalt pavement (WMAP) projects on Shakwak Highway. CAP monitored and advised on the sub-cut excavations, granular “A” and shoulder aggregate placement, asphalt tack, prime coat, and warm mix asphalt. In total, the contractor placed 56,500 tonnes of WMAP for the two projects.
Situated on the south bank of the Pelly River, Ross River is a small community in east-central Yukon. Cyclical spring thaws and ice jams caused Pelly River to flood into Ross River’s low-lying areas. The floods contributed to higher road maintenance costs, broken road BST surfacing, and surface water pooling within ditches and low areas. Local First Nation and territorial governments requested a road network re-design and re-construction to resolve these long-standing roadwork and drainage issues.
This project involved the expansion of High River’s and Okotoks’ substations. For the Okotoks substation, 11 concrete pile foundations and 1 circuit breaker pad foundation were installed. The High River substation was upgraded by expanding the substation pad. The fence was modified contain this expansion, and 5 concrete pile foundations and 1 circuit breaker pad foundation were installed.
The Black Spruce 154S Substation is a new 240-kV switching station located 35 km south of Conklin, Alberta, on the Cenovus Christina Lake Project Site. This substation provides reliable power to the oil industry in that region. Site preparation, grading, and an access road were necessary for this project.
This Alberta Transportation project consisted of 14.6 km of base and paving on Highway 680:02 and 18.4 km of final stage paving on Highway 727:02. Reconstruction of Highway 680:02 was completed in 2013, and base and first stage paving of Highway 727:02 was completed in 2012, both under separate contracts.
This greenfield project involved stripping topsoil and constructing a substation pad. This included installing 336 screw piles, 4 breaker pads, 2 transformer pads with Sorbweb oil containment, and constructing the substation access road. Finally, the site was remediated by placing topsoil and grass seeding.
