Mount Pleasant Station

Mount Pleasant Station is a part of “The Eglinton Crosstown LRT” project which is a 19 km light rail transit line, with more than 10 km underground run, that is aimed to provide fast, reliable, and comfortable transit to Toronto residents. This project is one of the first large-scale transit projects for the Toronto area.

The project area is 20184 sq ft with 3 levels of the underground station and 3 levels of the elevated main entrance building. We were entrusted with the work of concrete reinforcement of the main entrance and station boxes of the avenue station by AGF Rebar Inc. The majority of work on the project was done on RebarCAD and Bluebeam.

Scope Of Work:

Our team worked on preparing 2D Reinforcement shop drawings and BBS extraction for the secondary entrance. This included Concourse slabs, Staircases, Exterior concrete walls, Interior concrete walls, and miscellaneous curbs.

 

 

 

 

Challenges & Solutions:

Challenges:

The roof slab of the metro station was already in place. The underground construction of the tunnel started later on. Due to this, the project had constructability issues. The Station platform was 18 Meters below the Roof level (The roof was aligned with the normal street level). Since the roof was a solid concrete mass of 2 meters in depth and was already constructed, we only had two entrance points for the supply of construction materials and machinery, to cover the overall station of 128 meters in length.

Solutions:

With minimal space for the execution of the job, we employed different technologies and techniques to solve the issues by performing the constructability review. Fabrication of special bar shapes and the use of various types of couplers, form savers, etc. helped facilitate the tasks per the project’s specific requirements.

 

 

 

 

Pinnacle’s Value Addition:

Pinnacle found constructability issues and design gaps, which in turn resulted in adequate revision of contract documents as addendums and this helped in achieving optimum output at all levels. Through our expert BIM consulting services, we offered the best possible solution to using the latest BIM technology for concrete reinforcement and other allied operations.
