At Industra, we are focused on finding innovative solutions to the most complex construction projects while limiting our environmental footprint and impact.
Given the nature of our business, all our projects have significant environmental components and an increasing number require a detailed environmental protection plan. From installation of cofferdams, rip rap, culverts, and stormwater basins to hazardous material abatement, we have the experience and in-house expertise to handle most environmental requirements. For more complex environmental requirements, we have experience working with environmental consultants and engineers.

This project within a 10 km stretch of a former section of the Alaska Highway in northern BC required replacing the existing bridges and roadways to place the road in a self-maintaining state to protect the adjacent resources. It involved removal of five bridge structures and abutments, including two bridges that spanned over 100 feet, replacing two bridges with fords traversable by 4×4 pickup truck, regrading and installation of rip rap, removal of 22 deep culverts, re-establishment of natural drainage patterns, stabilizing the road prism to reduce impact of sediment transport and removal of all debris.
This project involved the new construction of a flood mitigation pump station in the Hammersley Dyke on the Fraser River. A massive concrete inlet structure housed two 9-foot (2.7 metre) diameter water turbines to draw freshet water from one side of the dyke and pump it directly into the Fraser River.
This in-stream project involved the sliplining of an existing 6-foot diameter culvert pipe, repairs to two existing culverts and the boring and installation of 150 feet of welded 10-foot diameter steel pipe under the Alaska Highway at the Townsend Creek crossing halfway between Fort St. John and Fort Nelson, BC.
