Edmonton Valley Line LRT
About The Client: In 2016, SB Canada was retained by TransEd Partnership for the installation of the piles for the Elevated Guideways and Whitemud LRT Bridge on the Valley Line LRT Project in Edmonton.
Our Task: Installation of the piles. Work area extended 12.0 km with piles being installed in close vicinity to CN/CP rail tracks at 2 locations and major traffic arteries at 3 locations
Techniques used: Bored Piles. SB Canada adopted two main methodologies consisting of top casing installed with a vibrohammer in the areas where bedrock was found within 15.0m of the working grade and polymer slurry drilling in areas where the sloughing layers were found past 15.0 m.
