Menard Canada

Industrial Facilities

Industrial facilities often require raised site grades to accommodate loading docks, are subject to heavy warehouse storage loads and plant floor live loads, and are often built or rehabbed on pre-existing brown field sites. In the past, many warehouses and industrial buildings situated on sites with poor soil conditions have been constructed using pile foundations and reinforced concrete slabs. Menard Canada ground improvement solutions are routinely employed to allow construction of economical slab-on-grade floor systems, resulting in benefits of economy, system performance and environmental advantages.

Objectives

  • Control total and differential settlements
  • Accommodate special loads and soils
  • Improve performance of flooring systems
  • Minimize construction schedule

Featured Industrial Facilities Projects

  • JAMES Wastewater Treatment Plant – Unitized Substation

    Abbotsford, BC Canada
    The City of Abbotsford is constructing a new unitized sub-station transformer at the Joint Abbotsford Mission Environmental Systems (JAMES) Wastewater Treatment Plant, located on the south bank of the Fraser River in Abbotsford, BC. The proposed sub-station structures will be founded on a single structural raft/mat slab covering an area of 290 m2, and will be designed to post-disaster importance... Read More
  • Catalyst Paper Pulp Mill - GTP G12 Power Increase

    Powell River, BC Canada
    Catalyst Paper has proposed constructing a new Turbine Generator / Condenser at their Pulp Mill in Powell River, BC. The new facilities will be supported by a mat foundation over densified ground to a depth of 19 m. This phase of the project involved a ground improvement treatment area of approximately 250 m2 beneath the Condenser foundation. Read More
  • Normandale Fish Culture Main Station

    Normandale, ON
    This project involved the construction of the Normandale Fish Culture Main Station for the Ministry of Natural Resources, located in Normandale. A geotechnical report noted that before construction, soil improvement was necessary compact loose sand layers and to mitigate liquefaction in a seismic event. As an alternative to excavation, replacement and compaction, Menard Canada proposed a ground improvement approach... Read More
  • Normandale Fish Culture Sub-Station

    Normandale, ON
    This project involved the construction of a fish culture sub-station for the Ministry of Natural Resources, located in Normandale, 0.5 km East of Front St. at Turkey Point Rd. A geotechnical report revealed that prior to construction, soil improvement was necessary to support the slab on grade and minimize potential total and differential settlements. As an alternative to excavation,... Read More
