What’s with all that dirt?

Part of the THA plan incorporated a garage connected to the new residence. To achieve this, deep underpinning of the existing foundation walls was required, as well as shoring adjacent properties.


Limited site access through a rear lane way added logistical challenges. Excavated material had to be removed and transported by bobcat to waiting trucks on the nearest side street. Lane way clean up required hours of labour sweeping and power washing. Water trucks were brought in to wash down the streets. More than 250 cubic meters of earth were removed over several days.
