Nahanni Construction installed a number of underground concrete foundations and infrastructure at Diavik Diamond Mine for Lockerbie & Hole, the main contractor at the site.

The Challenges

The main challenge for this project was to find well-trained personnel that were willing to work underground.

How We Helped

Nahanni’s well-trained and highly skilled workforce proved to be an invaluable asset for this work. Many of our workers have been trained in every aspect of construction and are able to operate most equipment. This meant that our work crew had the flexibility to help out in any capacity during the project, which involved not only underground delivery of, forming, and pouring concrete, it also included underground installation of mechanical items such as pipelines and operating equipment. The client was so pleased with Nahanni’s work on this project that they continued to expend upon the scope of work, extending a six month project into three years.
