National Innovation Award recipient for “cool” idea
Innovation is a key element in today’s construction industry, as recognized by the Canadian Construction Association’s Innovation Award presented to Greyback Construction for groundbreaking advances in concrete work during the construction of the WR Bennett floating bridge in Kelowna.
"In lieu of the traditional approaches to pouring concrete, Greyback needed to find a safe, predictable and cost-effective method to pour cool concrete on hot summer days to meet its project deadline. Greyback's 'outside the box' solution?... using snowmaking machines to cool the ambient air instead of the concrete on days where temperatures in the mid-30s are not uncommon in the Okanagan Valley.
The results were impressive. The use of snowmaking machines greatly enhanced worker safety and working conditions, was very predictable, improved the quality of the concrete cure at minimal additional cost, and was enviromentally friendly, using water that was already being pumped."
