The Glycol Treatment Facility at the Calgary International Airport collects, stores, and treats glycol-contaminated storm water from deicing operations on the new international terminal to be discharged back into the City of Calgary’s storm system. The project is divided into two greenfield sites. The north houses a below-grade, cast-in-place diversion chamber and pump station; electrical skid; and back-up generator. The south site consists of the retention pond; below-grade, cast-in-place influent lift station; aerated gravel beds; and blower building.
The client’s top priority was to achieve substantial performance with an operating facility by October 31, 2016, in time for the opening of the new international terminal. Not only did the project team complete the project on time, but also under budget.
Additional work involved construction of a small building to enclose the previously constructed McCall Way pump station. The building featured monorail hoists for maintenance of the pumps and an advanced gas detection system. HVAC, mechanical, and electrical systems were also installed in the building.
