Compass Access tackles large pipeline job south of Grande Prairie

Pipeline JobLarge Pipeline Job

Sometimes we get the opportunity to assist with some pretty impressive construction projects here in Alberta. We recently helped a high-priority client on a pipeline job just south of Grande Prairie, and wanted to share what goes into accessing a project of this scope.

The client called us regarding a 14 km pipeline project they were undertaking. It was originally estimated they would need anywhere between 1000 to 3000 access mats for their project. However, once the crews started working, the number quickly increased to 4500 mats.

The client works in a vital area, requiring us to work fast and efficient to ensure mats were delivered on time for them to meet their deadlines. Of course, the construction season was already in full swing and our team was quite busy. We had to pull strings to ensure the client was well taken care of. No matter how busy we get, we always want to ensure our clients get the full Compass experience, with only the best service, safety standards and value.

When we finally met the client’s needs, we had produced just shy of 7400 mats - one of the largest projects in our company’s history. In fact, the job is still ongoing, with crews working around the clock to pick and move the mats infield.

We’re proud of our team for continuing to provide the best service possible, even in the face of tight deadlines and other challenges. Could we help you with your next project - big or small? If so:
