This letter is to provide a reference to Canadian Concrete Leveling for diligent and professional support of our project at the Pickering Nuclear Generation. The Canadian Concrete Leveling team led by Matt McCullough completed their scope successfully despite the stringent conditions and tight schedule deadlines. The project had a significant issue arise with the break of an underground fire suppression water main where the area around the pipe suffered significant soil loss, disturbance and weakening of soil. The soil saturation in the area caused a significant risk to the stability of an adjacent manhole servicing the steam blow-off system in the station.
Canadian Concrete Leveling came as a recommended subcontractor by Golder Associates, the subject matter expert consultant for geotechnical issues on the project, to help with the stabilization of the structure at risk. Matt McCullough was also referred by name as the lead for the repair. Working on our site comes with a significant need for safety training and protocols. CCL met this challenge and provided all training certificates needed in a matter of days, supporting the project on an emergency basis. Furthermore, CCL’s team’s input was very valuable when integrating the solution with other subcontractors and design agencies to ensure the structure stabilization is performed efficiently, without affecting the adjacent work on repairing the fireline water main afterwards.
Once on-site, the work was completed in two shifts in an incredibly professional manner, with emphasis on safety and quality. Once the work was completed, CCL provided their substantial completion notice and as-built report within a couple of days from completing the work, meeting their budget and schedule requirements. Should the need arise, I would welcome CCL’s team, under Matt McCullough’s leadership, for further work of a similar nature given the outstanding performance that was witnessed.
