The Ruskin Dam Upgrade began in 2012, with the Marcon team fabricating components for the dam, powerhouse, and access bridge, bringing all components up to current seismic standards.
- Upgrading the Ruskin Dam was a highly technical project with tight tolerances, rigorous quality control reporting, and quality assurance inspections—an environment well-suited for our team.
- The complicated and specialized steel fabrication was handled by our team, whose diverse experience lent the needed skill and knowledge to the project.
- Our team fabricated six art panels that were suspended from the piers. Designed by Kwantlen artist, Brandon Gabriel, these panels were fabricated with a steel support frame and aluminum backplates with the artist’s designs cut from weathering steel.
