- Kootenay Canal Generating Station

A recent project at the Revelstoke Dam saw us building scaffolding that allowed the construction of four hundred and fifty linear feet of penstock. Twenty-six feet in diameter on a fifty-seven degree slope. We erected custom engineered scaffolding every six and a half feet along the sluices. We created slim three foot towers rising fifty feet. On the ground we built enormous fifty foot bridges which were then flown up and lowered into place. At the same time we created circular stairs that joined the towers and bridges. The completed structure allowed the contractor and welders to work at the correct height on every part of the project.


We are proud of our custom solutions to unique challenges. Dams are a big part of our business; each one is unique and each one requires unique solutions. We are the company that supplies the right solution every time.
