Perhaps one of the earliest forms of construction, Cast-in-place concrete offers an amazing range of design flexibility both aesthetically and structurally.
Cast-in-place concrete is used on nearly every building constructed in British Columbia. From foundations to roof slabs and all parts in between, it provides a key structural component that can be hidden by other finishes or left exposed, taking advantage of the concrete for both structural and architectural uses. Even if installing our Pre-Cast or Tilt-up concrete panels you still need quality on-site concrete for foundations and slabs.
We have been forming and pouring concrete for over 45 years and there are likely not any cities or towns between Whistler and Hope where we have not worked.
In 1993, Mardina Construction was hired as the cast-in-place forming contractor for the Justice Institute of B.C. This building was a defining project for us and proved we were capable of constructing large-scale architectural concrete projects.
With the completed Justice Institute under our respective tool belts, we constructed the first two of the Surrey Sister Schools concurrently; we then continued to build many more. Fraser Heights Sec., Clayton Sec., Ecole Kwantlen, Sullivan Heights Sec., Panorama Ridge Sec., and Burnaby Central Sec, all incorporating extensive use of exposed concrete inside and out.
In 1999, we completed work on the Walnut Grove Aquatic Centre, which has led to numerous aquatic and recreational centre projects including Sungod in Delta, the West Van Aquatic Centre, Port Moody Recreation Centre, Chilliwack Aquatic Centre, and, more recently, the Langley Events Centre, Hillcrest Recreation Centre in Vancouver, Northern Rockies Rec Centre in Fort Nelson and the Clayton Community Centre; located in Surrey this is North America’s first Passive House certified community centre.
We continue to form and pour many other concrete projects throughout south western B.C., from retail and commercial to public buildings and large scale infrastructure projects our wealth of experience allows us to tackle nearly any concrete project you can imagine.
