Biggest B.C. pour requires 429 cement trucks

August 30, 2021

Bosa Development’s Pier West project includes a 53-storey residential tower | Submitted

What is considered among the largest continuous residential concrete pours in Canada this year will soon require a rolling convoy of 429 cement trucks in a possible 14-hour, non-stop operation on the New Westminster, B.C., waterfront.
The site is Bosa Development’s Pier West mixed-use project that will include a 53-storey condominium tower built right on the Fraser River riverfront.
“Bosa Development have confirmed that the monolithic pour of 4,500 cubic metres (158,916 cubic feet) for the west tower core needs to occur all at one time and is estimated to take 12 to 14 hours,” said an August 12 city report. “Because the work is a monolithic pour, it means that once the pour is started it must continue to completion.”
Mike Anderson, the city’s acting manager of transportation, said the concrete pour is coming soon. “It’s expected to happen, I believe, in early September.”
The work will include coordination between the five pump trucks and approximately 429 concrete pour trucks convoying wet concrete to the site.

Pour may take 14 hours, non-stop.

The city’s bylaw allows construction activities that create noise and impact the surrounding community to be done between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturdays. The giant continuous pour has been granted an extension if it runs for more than 13 hours.
Pier West will be one of the tallest waterfront residential properties in the Lower Mainland. It will include 43- and 53-storey high-rises, a three-storey commercial building, about two acres of park and open space, a public plaza and esplanade space.
