Leading the way in heavy civil construction
Our proven track record of success in heavy civil construction is what separates Morgan from the rest of the industry. Take a look at some of our recent milestone projects.
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.
Highway 63 Widening
As part of the Province of Alberta’s campaign to widen Highway 63, Morgan was awarded the 0 - 14 km contract. Morgan was the prime contractor on this scope responsible for managing all traffic control, site safety, and subcontractor management. The project included 3.3 million m3 of earth and roughly 250 staff members to complete.
