    Client Challenge

    Crossing the Sikanni Chief River valley with two 8” lines and one 10” line. Crossing in close proximity to campground and other landowners.

    Entec’s Solution

    Route evaluation and detailed design carried the goal of moving the construction activities away from the landowners and residents as much as technically feasible. Throughout the tendering and construction support phases Entec worked with the client and the contractor to implement noise and traffic mitigation measures to reduce the effect of construction activities on the community.

    Results & Client Benefit

    Through the design of a 1550m intersect drill to a vertical depth of 220m with 110m of telescoped surface casing installed, Entec assisted in eliminating environmental impact near the campground and minimized noise pollution through the use of sound barriers.
