Dufferin Aggregates Flamboro Quarry Expansion
- Structural and Electrical Engineering
- Location: Flamborough, Ontario
- Size: 900 metric tonnes per hour
- Client: Dufferin Aggregates
JLR provided full engineering design, contract administration, and resident inspection services for the plant expansion at Flamboro Quarry.
Our staff worked closely with Dufferin Aggregates during preliminary design to ensure all aspects of the plant could be functionally placed on the confined site. Civil layouts and traffic plans were developed to properly capture the needs of the plant and address any problem areas that may arise.
The new plant was designed and constructed in two phases. The first phase consisted of complete structural design for secondary crushing, secondary screening, tertiary crushing, and fine screening towers, as well as electrical design for the entire plant. The construction of phase one was completed one year after the design was complete.
The second phase consisted of complete structural design for the primary crushing and screening towers, including a truck dump structure and surge bin. When the second phase had been fully implemented, the plant’s capacity had increased to 900 metric tonnes per hour. The construction of phase two was completed one year after the design was complete. Both phases of the project were fully completed in four years.
Noise mitigation was heavily emphasized throughout the project to create as little noise pollution as possible to the residential areas around the quarry. The project also needed to adhere to the strict municipal by-laws in place for quarries in the area.
