Civil Works for the Construction of the Labrador West Landfill
In the fall of 2009, H.J. O’Connell was awarded the civil contract for the construction of a new landfill for Labrador West. The value of the project was approximately 1.6 million dollars and the work included: clearing, grubbing, rock excavation, mass common excavation, placing and compacting imported backfill material and granular materials, as well as the supply and installation of culvert pipe, guide rail and chain link fencing. The work was tendered late in the fall and adhering to the construction schedule was key to the owner in order to make sure that the project was completed before the onset of winter. The project was completed under budget and 1 month ahead of schedule.
