VIDEO: Lafarge's Harbour plant emphasizes conservation and sustainability
Lafarge Canada's Harbour plant is situated very near to a metro Vancouver residential community, and its unique placement means a different design is necessary to maintain harmony with its surroundings.
The plant is largely self-contained in order to reduce noise, emissions and integrate with the largely residential area surrounding the plant. But one unique feature distinguishes the plant from other industrial sites; it features a nest of bald eagles.
Lafarge has made efforts to preserve the eagle nest and accommodate their winged neighbours, and won an Environmental Excellence award from the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association which recognizes “outstanding contribution in protecting the environment and maintaining sound environmental management practices.”
"Unlocking Canada's Potential" will be the theme of this year's 96th annual Canadian Conference Association (CCA), where delegates are encouraged to look for opportunities beyond their borders.
The Vancouver Regional Construction Association presented "The Young Guns: Gen Y and their role in the future of construction" as the keynote construction panel at Buildex Vancouver on Feb. 19.
