North Washington St. Bridge project

After more than 100 years of service, the North Washington Street Bridge is being replaced with a new bridge for the 21st-century. A complete street over water that works for everyone: people driving, riding the bus, biking, walking, sightseeing, boating and living nearby. TREVIICOS is progressing its work for the construction of the drilled shaft foundations to support the five new piers.

Liebherr is looking to lead the way in sustainable construction practices, and one of the ways it’s doing this is by introducing new electric versions of its piling rigs. The first one – the LB 16 Unplugged – has already been put to work in Europe and could be available in Canada this year.

The problem is acute in the construction industry, where studies show a higher prevalence of mental distress, coupled with a lower likelihood of workers reporting harassment.
