Wolverine Rail Loadout, Western Canadian Coal

Allnorth developed an alternative design for the Wolverine coal loadout that served the same function as a previous design but at a lower cost. Allnorth’s design involved relocating the main rail line to the siding line so rail traffic could continue. Allnorth provided surveying, engineering design, supervision and inspection of approximately 3,500 metres of rail line. The previous main line was removed and realigned and an additional track was added to provide the loadout. Allnorth’s design construction cost was one-third that of the previous design, and the completed project was delivered on time and within budget. 

Allnorth’s responsibilities for this project included:

  • Civil engineering
  • Structural engineering
  • Site survey
  • Construction supervision
