This was our first civil project in Calgary.
The 6,300 sq. ft. wastewater treatment plant in the Town of Nanton needed to be updated to include 11 cast-in-place concrete tanks of various sizes, one of which was a lift station for pumping the incoming waste water into the process. The way that the lift station works is by taking the incoming sanitary through a grinder, into a sump and pumps it up to start the filtration process through LEAP primary filters.
The two-storey building featured a structural steel frame, with masonry block and metal cladding. Significant site work and outfall work was also required. We relied on BIM during the design phase of the project.
The plant has been sized for a forecasted peak water flow of nine million liters per day
