CORNWALL GRAVEL PROJECTS
Low Level International Bridge – Cornwall
We were involved with the supplying materials for the 1st Seaway International Bridge in 1957 and we paved the new 2013 low level International bridge. We also did site work and paving of the Canada Border Service Agency project.
10th LINE ROAD WIDENING IN ORLEANS
This 2008-2009 project is replacing deep storm sewers, watermain and sanitary sewers. It requires deep trenching and specialized equipment. As shown in photo, Cornwall Gravel has 3 shovels on site, Cat 385, Cat 365 and Cat 345. These large shovels are required to move the special trench boxes that were designed and manufacture in order to complete this deep sewer job. The crews have worked throughout the winter months to keep the project on schedule.
COUNTRY HILL ESTATES SUBDIVISION
We are currently working on the 3rd phase of a subdivision located in Greely, in the City of Ottawa. Cartwave Realty Ltd. is to developing this raw land into beautiful 2 acre lots. This 84 lot subdivision, required massive machinery to break solid bedrock to make way for the roadway through the subdivision. Cat 345 Shovels with hoe ram attachments, chipped away at the rock to construct ditches for proper drainage. This project has an estimated value of approximately $2,000,000.
HILL ISLAND SUBDIVISION
Cartwave Realty Ltd. is developing another subdivision in the City of Cornwall. It is a 29 lot subdivision on Ellen Avenue in Cornwall for single and semi-detached homes. We install the sewers, water mains and the underground wiring then pour curbs and sidewalks and construct and pave the street.
SCM WAL-MART WAREHOUSE
In 1998, we played a huge role in preparing the new SCM Walmart Warehouse site, excavating the massive area for the building and parking lots. We supplied a large volume of granular materials for the building foundation and parking lots. We have been awarded other phases of SCM Warehouse as they continual expand the existing warehouse.
Fortunately for Cornwall, Home Depot decided to build a new store to service the local economy. Our crews did the clearing/grubbing of the site, excavation of the building, stone and ready mix supply, servicing and paving. This mega store is a real gem for the Cornwall community. This project’s budget was approximately $2,500,000.
ST. JOSEPH’S VILLA
Three houses had to be demolished for the expansion of St. Joseph’s Villa on First Street and York Street in the City of Cornwall. We have done many projects of this type including requests by insurance companies who need a site clear after a house or building has been severely damaged.
HIGHWAY 401 OVERPASSES
In 2003-2004, Cornwall Gravel Co. had a two-year contract to demolish twin overpasses on Highway 401 near Cornwall. The bridges were originally constructed in the 1950s to transport highway traffic over an existing railway line. The railway line has since been abandoned, making the bridges redundant.
CITY OF OTTAWA
In 2001, the City of Ottawa awarded Cornwall Gravel a $3,000,000 contract. This contract required the installation of a FRP sewage lift station and control chamber manhole. The tank picture here, had an interior diameter of 3.66 meters and a total height of 15.2 meters. The elevation for the tank required excavating 14.9 meters below final grade with the deepest 8 meters being in solid bedrock. It was an exciting challenge for our crews and the job went smoothly due to the experience of our work force.
Cornwall Gravel paving crew at Parliament Hill. The crew had a special assignment in Ottawa on a Saturday, to pave in front of Parliament Hill. The crew received high praise for a job well done.
This project involved the reconstruction of Brookdale Avenue in the city of Cornwall. This $6,000,000 two-year contract has kept Cornwall Gravel crews busy for the last two years. The job involved putting in new sewers, watermain and services to all houses and businesses along this stretch of Brookdale Avenue.
