Pinkut Creek Intake

Client: Fisheries and Oceans Canada

Architect: Kerr Wood Leidal Associates Ltd.

Project: The Pinkut Creek Spawning channel is located on the shore of Babine Lake. Water is supplied to the spawning channels through an intake tunnel running from Pinkut Creek.  The purpose of this project was to minimize the bed load deposition at the entrance to the intake tunnel.  This was accomplished through the construction of a weir and the addition of a sluice gate to the existing weir structure.  This required a section of the creek to be drained, form work to be constructed, rock to be excavated, and concrete poured.

      

         

I worked with PVL on a project retrofitting two three storey apartment buildings containing 44 suites. The retrofit involved stripping the buildings down to the framing and completely refinishing. PVL came to this project at a difficult time after it had been abandoned part way through and left in disarray. By being well organized and efficient PVL was able to get the project moving again for a reasonable cost and within a fairly short time frame.
