The raw water pumping station project involved the completion of a portion of the main concrete structure for the new water treatment plant facility at the city of Winnipeg's Deacon Reservoir. Commencement of the project required a significant excavation complete with shoring around the perimeter. The foundation consists of over 200 precast driven piles. The main structure consists of approximately 4,100 cubic yards of cast-in-place concrete including 4 feet thick concrete walls that are 40 feet high, a cast-in-place suspended concrete roof 40 feet above the base slab, and concrete columns and beams towering approximately 72 feet above the foundation slab. The entire structure was water tested in a number of stages and included the application of an exterior waterproof membrane prior to completing the backfill of the structure.
