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.
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.
We decided that Large Diameter Pipe piles would be the most suitable solution here. Since these kinds of piles are modular in nature, they are perfect for limited-access sites and they provide a strong foundation.
No. of Piles: 11
Pile Type: Large diameter pile – 7″
