Our mandate

The work included the installation of a geosynthetic multilayer liner system, granular material, a passive vent for the release of the landfill gases and related components.

In addition to the conventional elements of the project, our teams proposed a few new aspects, which helped improve the environmental impact and biodiversity of this type of site.

Project particularities

The project was completed in 7 weeks. Given the scope of the work that had to be done, it was essential that all stakeholders involved act in a coordinated manner. 

A training component was added to the project, during which we taught the technical staff the best methods for maintaining an engineered landfill.
