Talbot Dam Rehabilitation

About The Client:The Talbot Dam project is a full replacement of an existing 100+ year old dam located on the Trent-Severn Waterway near Gamebridge, Ontario. The project was completed in three phases over a two-year period.
SB Canada led the design development of a year-round temporary access trestle, cofferdam and water control system to facilitate staged removal of a two-sluiceway water control dam. This included design of an intermediate middle pier and custom stop log handling system in the temporary condition. SB Canada designed and managed the dewatering system 24/7 throughout the demolition and reconstruction phases of the permanent structure.

Our Task: Detailed design, supply and installation of the Cofferdam & Trestle

Techniques used: Installation of a temporary access trestle, sheet pile walls.
