Situated in the heart of a vibrant urban centre in southeast Calgary, the 330,000 sf Seton recreation facility will provide a blend of leisure, sports, arts, cultural and recreational amenities. As a subcontractor for this project, BIRCO Environmental successfully designed and mixed approximately 40,000 tonnes of Cement Stabilized Base which was applied under critical areas of the project to eliminate any potential settlement issues.

BIRCO Environmental has developed a system for processing a range of leachable, contaminated material. This process is achieved through the precise introduction of various binding reagents into the contaminated material, essentially stabilizing and/or solidifying the contaminants.
Cement Kiln Disposal
BIRCO Environmental's cement Kiln Disposal process bypasses the need for landfilling a range of contaminated materials through introduction into the production of Portland Cement. This eliminates any future liability related to the contaminated material at a significantly discounted cost.
