The Great Big Pour at VMC

July 6, 2015

The next stage of construction at the TYSSE Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Station involved pouring a massive amount of concrete to fill the main entrance ring for the station. Because of the magnitude of the pour, two concrete plants, with a third on standby, were required to produce the concrete.

At 3:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 4, 2015 the concrete pour began. Concrete trucks arrived every five minutes and construction crews worked in 10 hour shifts, with two crews placing the concrete in different sections. Concrete was placed at a rate of 70-100 cubic metres per hour with a total of 2250 cubic metres poured! The great big pour finished on Sunday, July 5, 2015 at 4:00 a.m.
