In 2013 Blacktop Paving was a subcontractor of the North Link Partnership, a joint venture between SNC Lavelin and Graham Construction, for the Edmonton LRT City Line. Our contract was to install the concrete plazas and sidewalks for the MacEwan Station Plaza, the Kingsway Station Plaza and the NAIT Station Plaza.

The Problem:

We had to take the time to produce the specific finishes to the concrete, while still managing to pour over 2200 cubic meters of concrete with one concrete crew in the 2013 construction season.

The Solution:

Some of the concrete finishes we had never installed before and the saw cuts were extensive and yet precise. We had to create samples and work with the architects of the project to deliver the finishes they had in mind. The amount of saw cutting was quite large, with a very high tolerance for their location and execution. We worked very closely with the Contractor’s management team in order to keep the production and project schedule requirements.

The Return:

This project carried over into the fall and winter of 2013/14, where we finished in the early spring of 2014. This was a flagship project for Blacktop’s concrete division, both in terms of volume and aesthetics. Ultimately the City of Edmonton was the owner and we feel we executed our scope of this project excellently creating beautiful and structural concrete that will be enjoyed by many Edmontonians for years to come.
