Lined Containment Structures

Cost Certainty and Higher Accountability

Reservoir, pond, landfill, and other lined containment design and construction projects are often managed by multiple stakeholders, resulting in challenges related to accountability and quick response to varied and unexpected subsurface conditions.

We offer our customers a higher level of accountability by self-performing both the engineering and construction work and applying a suite of leading geomatics technologies. Having a higher level of control during construction also enables us to quickly respond to varied subsurface conditions, leading to greater transparency, quality, and cost certainty for your project.

Engineering Design & Regulatory Services

As engineers of record for over 50 lined containment ponds, we apply a proven approach to collect a detailed view of your site and align the design to the requirements of the immediate environment.

Construction Philosophy

Effective communication across construction and engineering is critical for building the transparency required to deliver your project. Assisted by industry-leading earthworks and geospatial equipment, our team creates technology-enabled construction workflows to build clarity and clear communication channels through daily reports and instant 24/7 access to site conditions. 

We do this through a combination of industry-leading software, cloud-based data transfer/processing, global positioning systems (GPS), IoT-enabled heavy equipment, ground survey equipment, and real-time kinetic (RTK) enabled GPS unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

This workflow provides instantaneous as-built project data and can rapidly identify and respond to design issues to drive your construction schedule.

Our engineering and construction expertise is integrated under one company.

For each project, we prepare a site-specific Quality Plan (QP). The QP will detail our approach to managing and documenting quality throughout the Project. To support the QP, we will provide our in-house quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) representatives to oversee all project quality aspects. Our office-based senior Civil and Geotechnical Engineers verify all quality-related tests, observations, and reports before issuing documentation to our clients.

Through the combination of engineering and construction expertise, we better manage risk and offer the following benefits:

  • State-of-the-art technology enables a fast response to change and reduces the likelihood of change management
  • Maintenance of open lines of communication between the field and office
  • Daily quantity and production tracking
  • Streamlined calculation and decision making
  • Detailed post-construction reporting

Prime Contractor Services

Standards and procedures are essential to safety, project performance and construction quality. We recognize that ongoing support levels vary from client to client and offer a suite of tools and processes you can choose from to supplement your project.

Health and Safety is a business fundamental for Integrated Sustainability. In 2021, we scored 96% on our COR audit, and we aim to achieve 100% safe performance through hazard identification and mitigation, education, skill training, and clear accountability concerning health and safety performance.
