Large Diameter Pipe Piles Project for SKYTRAIN CANOPY in Surrey BC Canada

Large Diameter Pipe Pile Project 

Debris from a new development next to the SkyTrain in Surrey, BC posed a risk to the tracks below. Because of this, TerraCana was asked to build a canopy over the tracks to protect them.

Challenges

The SkyTrain footings meant that conventional excavation would damage the tracks. Furthermore, the tracks overhead limited site access. Finally, the resulting foundation needed to have a high load capacity to support the canopy.
