Quarry Park has a special significance for Lafarge. One of the first of its kind, the community is built on the site of a gravel pit formerly owned by Lafarge Canada. The site provided quality gravels and aggregates for fifty years, but today, it features a vibrant market, residential developments, green spaces, and corporate office spaces.
Driven by a culture of sustainability and effective resource management, Quarry Park highlights Lafarge's construction management and innovative solutions. Lafarge's scope included new roadway construction, deep and shallow utility installation, curbs and gutters, and aggregate supply and placement.
Lafarge was extensively familiar with the location; however, that did not remove the challenges of converting it into commercial and residential development. The $70 million project encountered several hurdles, each requiring careful consideration.
Lafarge’s goal was to make this construction as sustainable as possible, something the client had also requested. There were some specific goals to ensure there was minimal environmental impact.
