Seems to me that it would make much more sense if you did. It's like the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing....it gives one pause.

Thanks mcminsen for the update. This is my next target (and hopefully successful) to capture an excavator egress

Slow and steady progress. Still going deeper. This excavation is huge. Look at the workers for scale.

Yes, that hole makes me flash on the Athabasca Oil Sands for scale. However, this is the long, necessary, foundation-building part. It can generate mild impatience.
Once the building starts to go up, there wil be more and more excitiement as this fantastic addition to the skyline takes shape and is finally topped off !!

I never measured it, but there was a project in Montreal (late 80's) in which the excavation (using explosives in bedrock) was deeper than the building was tall. The project (at Guy and Sainte Catherine) included parking for an adjacent older building (Le Faubourg). The building is ~12 stories.

Don't post much here but have been a member for years. Need to ask the question, what do they do with the massive amounts of material excavated from large construction sites such as this?

Surrey Delta are the home to dump sites also some of the different cities take the spoils depending on classification for improvements to dykes

Remember, it's just "proposed", so right now they're just digging for buried treasure.
