Carleton University Eyewash Station Installation
Project Year: 2008
General Contractors was awarded the contract to install
105 eyewash stations in 35 different buildings scattered around
the campus. The eyewash stations varied from counter top units to
full shower units. Plumbing for each unit was dependant on the available
water supply lines and varied from connecting into existing lines,
to finding and plumbing lines from 150’ away.
Given the varying conditions, some of the waste water required
holding tanks and sump pumps to evacuate it to the nearest possible
drain line. Several locations required coring, excavation, backfill
and new concrete topping to complete the required work.
Work was coordinated with the existing lab users to ensure that
interruptions to the labs were kept to a minimum.
