BAT Construction Ltd. provides a full range of services for rock and soil stabilization projects, rock cuts, landslides, open pit mines, tunnels, concrete restoration, horizontal drain holes and soil anchors.

These services include:

• Scaling:

BAT has highly trained personnel who offer high angle scaling of rock cuts to maintain safety of highways, mining benches, and residential excavations. BAT offers an emergency response team which can access and respond to rail or highway rockslides.

• Horizontal Drain Drilling

Large open pit mining and slope cuts, can benefit dramatically with the reduction of water within the slope through placement of free-draining horizontally drilled holes. From standard 50 mm diameter, 6 m long, rock cut drains, to 150 mm diameter holes, up to 300 m long, BAT has specifically designed equipment and trained crews to provide an excellent drain install service. Both rock and overburden, cased or uncased drain holes can be provided.

• Trim Blasting:

Rock slope stabilization often requires trim blasting, and BAT has provided this service for 25 years. This is typically achieved by drilling small diameter holes with handheld pneumatic machines with rope access, and controlled blasting techniques. BAT has also successfully completed several larger scale surface blasting projects, such as the rock excavation for the new treatment plant at the Capilano –Seymour project, near sensitive zones such as fish hatcheries, dams and public areas.

• Mesh Installation:

Several kilometers of slope mesh and other protection systems throughout the BC highway network have been installed by BAT. BAT has experience with system types such as Tecco, gabion slope mesh, rock fall catch fences, rock fall protection systems, avalanche protection systems, and debris flow barriers.

• Rock & Soil Anchors:

BAT installs many types of anchor systems for rock and slope stabilization.

From Grouted dowels for rock block stability on road or mine bench cuts, to Tensioned DCP anchors in gravels for building seismic upgrades, communication or wind tower anchors, BAT can provide a team to install almost any anchor system in any situation. BAT can provide installation services for micro-piles, tendons and cable bolting. Tensioning and testing services are also available.
