Our Process

The Lean Lens

Our goal is to provide value to our clients. At Morgan, we manage our projects with a Lean lens. We seek to provide value to the customer at every step of the process while minimizing waste. Through a constant cycle of planning, doing, checking and adjusting (PDCA), we enable transparent communication and ensure project quality.

  1. 1

    Opportunities to identify value

    Through examination of heavy civil construction processes, such as project planning, material management, and equipment utilization, we identify opportunities to improve efficiency and reduce waste.

  2. 2

    Eliminating the eight forms of waste

    Overproduction, waiting, defects, over-processing, excess inventory, unnecessary motion, unused talent, and transportation. By understanding these forms of waste, we can work to eliminate them and refine our approach.

  3. 3

    Process flow

    We analyze the flow of materials and information through each stage of the construction process, from planning to delivery, identifying areas of inefficiency and trimming.

  4. 4

    Establishing pull

    Work is only initiated when there is demand from the next stage in the process. By following this principle, we avoid overproduction and minimize the creation of waste.

  5. 5

    Continuous improvement

    Through ongoing analysis and development, we evaluate our processes and constantly look for ways to improve efficiency, quality, and safety in the heavy civil construction industry.

Heavy Civil Construction

Calgary 24th Street Pond and Ogden Landfill Remediation

In preparation for the City of Calgary Green Line LRT expansion, Morgan was contracted to facilitate the reclamation and reconstruction of the old Ogden Landfill site. The project consisted of lowering the water table by installing a series of caisson sumps to draw down the water table then treating the water and removing all the total suspended solids, metals, and H2S gases. Upon successfully dewatering the site Morgan was then able to remove any remaining garbage and contaminated soils in advance of constructing the new 24th street pond, walking path, park and LRT track right of way.

Crowsnest Pass Golf Club Access Road

Morgan was contracted to construct 2 kilometers of access road from Highway 3 to the new clubhouse, maintenance building, and driving range for the Crowsnest Pass Golf Club in Blairmore, AB. The project included excavation, blasting, gravel installation, paving, drainage features, and installation of utilities.  Highway 3 was widened and new traffic control features were installed to manage the increase in traffic to the facility. The project included several challenges, including careful monitoring of settlement and installation of geosynthetic layers to manage the risks of constructing road immediately above an existing mine shaft from an abandoned coal mine and adjacent to a sensitive wetland.

Site C Dam – North Bank Excavation

As Prime Contractor, Morgan facilitated the initial construction preparation work for the Site C Dam Project in Fort St John BC. The project included the excavation of 1.8 million m3 from the north bank and placed in a gully to facilitate the relocation of the creek. In preparation for the dam construction Morgan constructed 7.5 km of high-grade all-weather road, 2.4 km of this road was constructed within the Peace River along the toe of the adjacent escarpment. Roughly 750,000 m3 of alluvial gravel to facilitate the in-water road construction was excavated out of the center of the Peace River safely and without incident. In alignment with Morgan's core values of always finding a better way, Morgan provided value engineering by design building a pre-cast 2.4 m diameter box culvert with 36m of bury as opposed to installing multi-plate corrugated steel pipe. Morgan is very proud to have been part of this high-profile project and construction team.
