Cementation/Northgate Minerals


In the fall 2011, TESC Contracting mobilized to a greenfield site in Matachewan Ontario. TESC self-performed the erection of one of the tallest poured concrete headframes in North America. The project consisted of a concrete reinforced headframe structure, structural steel works and equipment installations, and architectural works, also a concrete reinforced binhouse structure, steel works, architectural works and site demobilization. The civil portion of the project included the headframe concrete tower walls, floors, reinforcing steel, anchor bolts, embedded steel, tower core steel, roof structural steel, skip guides, brattice panels, monorails and lifting lugs, conveyance arrestor steelwork, and tensioning deck steelwork. Work included access platforms and doors, stairs, landings & handrails, guardrails, collar doors, gates, vent plenum, mandoors, overhead doors, stairwell enclosure at hoisting deck, penthouse structure, insulated wall system, roof deck, insulation and membrane.

Construction of the binhouse, transfer car and electrical room included concrete walls, reinforcing steel, anchor bolts and embedded steel, floors, fixed skip guides, skip discharge chutes, wear liner, all quality assurance and controls, and demobilization from site.

TESC’s Industrial Civil Department has completed numerous large scale, multi form and pour civil projects across North America with a seasoned team of experts and resources allowing us to self-perform projects from start to completion.
