Acting as the general contractor, Morven Construction overhauled this high school's track and field facilities, which went on to win the 2012 Kraft Canada Celebration Tour. In three months, the old track surface was completely removed and then upgraded to a 8-lane, polyresin track. Other improvements included upgrades to paths, long-jump, high-jump, and shotput areas.
Commissioned with the task of constructing a 2.7km test track bed at the Bombardier Plant in Millhaven, Morven Construction used innovative technology as well as tried-and-tested industry knowledge to create a surface that would withstand the rigors of testing Bombardier's new trains. This project also included the construction of a test train building with foundations.
Morven Construction worked as the designer and builder for Queen's University Nixon Playing Field, creating field, lighting and storm-water design, and garnering all city approval. Special considerations were required as the field was constructed over a underground garage, necessitating limited weight restriction, as well as continued functionality of the space for parking and pedestrians throughout the course of the project.
BATH INSTITUTION RECREATION YARD
In a matter of 16 weeks and under challenging restrictions due to limited access to the facility, Morven completed the construction of a new recreation yard at Bath Correctional Institution. In addition to constructing new sports and exercise areas, they supplied and installed lighting for the sports fields, and built the concrete duct bank lighting and security infrastructure.
SPIRIT OF SIR JOHN A LOCOMOTIVE
This time and culturally sensitive project required Morven to act as the general contractor for the construction of a new foundation for the Spirit of Sir John A. steam locomotive, as well as the train's relocation to this new base. To ensure the job ran smoothly and safely, Morven coordinated with the City of Kingston, heritage architects, archaeologists, and the restoration group consisting of volunteer pipefitters, train enthusiasts and residents.
