Above and Below

Mine site construction, both above ground and far below, is a labour-intensive process requiring considerable expertise, planning, and strict adherence to safety procedures and protocols. Long before mines become fully operational, they must be designed. Above ground, there will be structures ranging from repair shops to cooling towers, buildings for administration, and more. Deep beneath the soil, shafts are planned, excavated, and reinforced, and underground infrastructure is created.

Building the Next Generation

As thousands of experienced workers retire across North America every day, it is small wonder many industries are concerned about the future. It has been a decade since the oldest members of the baby boom generation started leaving their jobs, removing from the workplace decades of experience and skills that are tough to replace. The situation is so dire that, when younger workers are not available or knowledgeable enough to take over, retired staffers are often called back to work on a part-time basis.
