• Won the Lump Sum Contract over 3 other bidders

Deep Foundations recently drilled the deepest large-diameter caisson ever installed in Ontario. Using a Bauer BG-40 drill rig with a casing oscillator (see photo below), the first of many 1320mm diameter caissons was installed to a depth of 50m at Bayview Station on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT project. The caisson will serve dual purposes; incorporated in the excavation support system and carrying traffic from Eglinton and Bayview Avenues over the station excavation.
