Stadium & parking garage

Despite four months of blasting and excavation prior to construction, and the need to control vibrations, our team successfully moved and built Queen's University's most used stadium, incorporating state-of-the-art amenities and a fully underground parking garage.

Our mandate was to integrate the following elements:

  • A full-size, multi-season, artificial-surface playing field
  • A three-lane, rubberized recreational jogging track
  • New and much-improved low-spillage lighting system
  • Bench areas for participants
  • Spectator bleachers built into the grade of the field;
  • A new parking garage under the stadium.

The new parking garage can accommodate up to 580 vehicles on two levels. There are also two vehicle access ramps and six pedestrian entrances. In addition, we designed the multi-season sports stadium to be usable in the fall and spring, seven days a week.

Four months of blasting & excavation

Before construction could even start, this project required four months of excavation and blasting through bedrock.

Our challenge

Keeping the vibration level to a minimum

Since campus activities did not stop during construction and the campus itself is surrounded by a residential neighbourhood, we kept the vibration level to a minimum, at all times.
