Project highlights

  • In 2021, we rehabilitated Runway 11 – 29 between July 11 and September 13th. The project period was complicated by COVID restrictions and very wet weather in the Moncton area, which required frequent schedule adjustments.
  • The project consisted of milling 148,170 m² of asphalt, followed by two phases of asphalt work, across one major intersection. The team used the TOPCON MMGPS System to meet the strict project specifications of 5mm -/+ tolerance. This project saw the placement of 18, 340 tonnes of Type B asphalt and 20,630 tonnes of Type D 2asphalt. During phase 1 of the project, we also excavated 63,060 m³ of ground material and placed 33,440 tonnes of crushed stone which was graded with TOP CON MM GPS system to ensure accuracy and adherence to specifications.
  • In 2019, we successfully rehabilitated Runway 06 – 24. The original time frame for the project was June 24th to September 5th but following the tender close, a tighter schedule was requested as the work progressed through major intersections. This meant working seven days a week with multiple crews on the project simultaneously, and a complicated schedule of people, equipment and workflows between take-offs and landings.
  • The project consisted of milling 140,271 m² of asphalt, followed by 5 phases of asphalt work, across three major intersections. To meet the contract specifications of a 5mm +/- tolerance, we used the TOPCON MMGPS System because of the tight accuracy it offers. The project saw a total placement of 22, 582 tonnes of Type B asphalt (base course asphalt) and 17,333 tonnes of Type D asphalt (seal course asphalt).
