LRutt has been providing both wet- and dry-mix shotcrete services to clients since 2004. Their main objective is to provide solutions to the challenges faced on their clients’ projects and execute the work involved safely and diligently. With their qualified staff of shotcrete personnel and management, they can analyze project requirements and effectively offer their clients the experienced technical and practical approach to complete their projects on time and within budget. LRutt Contracting uses its experience in structural shotcrete application on a wide variety of projects. The company has a number of ACIcertified wet-mix and dry-mix nozzlemen, and experienced support staff. Structural Shotcrete Installation LRutt uses shotcrete to complete many different projects, such as blind foundation walls and single-sided formed architectural walls, retaining walls, and seismic upgrade elements. Concrete Repair LRutt has completed shotcrete and concrete installations to repair and restore structures for seismic upgrades. Structural upgrades to heritage or other buildings can be challenging and LRutt uses shotcrete as a means of reducing time and materials on site to expedite the upgrades. They work with owners, contractors, consultants, and engineers on each upgrade project with the preplanning required to ensure the most effective technology for each aspect of the work. Infrastructure LRutt Contracting has completed projects related to rapid transit and highway improvement. Most recently, LRutt completed a Light Rapid Transit tunnel separation wall 1.25 miles (2 km) in length and 21 ft (6.3 m) in height. The client required a quick turnaround time and LRutt completed the wall using wet-mix shotcrete in 40 days. Highway project repairs are another service provided by LRutt. Some of the unique projects completed include shotcrete relining of deteriorated water culverts below major highways. By using the shotcrete process, costly removal of existing failing culverts and traffic interruption were avoided. Other highway work includes slope stabilization shotcrete and anchors, and permanent retaining walls. Hydro Projects LRutt has worked on several large hydro projects using both dry- and wet-mix shotcrete. In northern British Columbia, Canada, LRutt completed the installation of 1635 yd3 (1250 m3) of Grade No. 2 dry shotcrete with silica fume and steel fibers to stabilize a degraded rock slope up to 197 ft (60 m) high above an active dam spillway.
