Triple Island Lightstation

Metro Concrete Restoration Group teams up with Lark Projects Limited to deliver a challenging restoration project. The battered and aging Triple Island Lightstation, remotely located 30 miles west off the coast of Prince Rupert, is receiving structural concrete repairs to the exterior walls. Even in the best sea conditions this location is barely accessible by boat, and because of this, the whole project is mobilized by helicopter. With access challenges being a great concern, this work requires innovated techniques and creative approaches to deliver the scope successfully.


The Triple Island Lightstation was built in 1916, operational since 1920, and has been keeping the passage safe for transport to this day. More information about this unique building and its heritage can be found at http://www.fogwhistle.ca/bclights/triple/.

Whalley Reservoir

^Above: Metro Concrete Restoration Group recently finished a repair job on the Whalley Reservoir. The reservoir was built back in 1981 with a capacity of 3.8 million litres, the construction of which greatly improved the city’s water supply.


With the help of J.W. Farkas Concrete Restorations, our job was to go in and retrofit all of the joints in the reservoir to mitigate leaking. We then had to coat the whole area with a waterproofing layer for extra measure. Not only was it tricky to ensure the proper confined space and fall restraint aspects were covered, we also had to be extremely careful with all the products that were brought into and used in the reservoir, as it is used for potable water for the general public. There was the added challenge of meeting a tight schedule in December, when the curing of the waterproofing layer took a little longer due to colder weather. The job was completed early January, and the goal to reduce the amount the reservoir leaked was accomplished.
