Great Lakes Copper Plant

Great Lakes Copper Plant

The Great Lakes Copper Plant in London, Ontario, posed a technical challenge in shotcrete shoring. HC Matcon helped to facilitate the installation of a new copper roll press. The shoring was completed inside a fully operational copper plant at night and on weekends. Special care was taken to ensure dust and overspray was contained within the work area causing minimal clean up and ensuring the plant was fully functional throughout the process.

HC Matcon, along with Blue-Con Excavating and McKay Cocker (GC), completed the 2,200ft2 shoring in less than three weeks.

Client: MacKay Cocker
Location: London, Ontario
