DOWNTOWN ARENA
PILE TESTING BULLETIN – JULY 29, 2013
OVERVIEW
Starting Wednesday, July 31, pile load testing will commence on the site for the downtown arena. These pile load tests will involve excavating two sites, inserting concrete piles, and then putting a load (in this case a steel beam) on the piles to test the pile’s performance. This testing will help the design team determine how many piles are needed for the arena building. These tests will be completed by mid-October.
CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY
There will be two excavations on the site (see map on reverse). The dirt will be stockpiled on site to minimize truck traffic in and out of the site. The pile will be covered with tarps to minimize dust. A piling rig will then be brought on site to install the concrete piles, and at that time concrete trucks will bring material to the site.
When testing is complete, the dirt will be backfilled back into the excavated areas, and fencing will be removed, returning the site to its original state.
There will be times, particularly when the pile testing is underway, that there will be limited activity on site.
TRAFFIC
There will be no restrictions to traffic flow during the testing period. Trucks will access the site from 104 Avenue.
SCHEDULE
July 30 - 31 Temporary fences installed on site
August 1 – 19 Excavations
August 12 – 23 Installation of concrete piles
August 19 to September 30 Pile testing
September 30 to mid-October Backfill excavations and exit site
SAFETY
The pile testing area will be fenced and closed to the public. Signage will be placed in the area to advise the public about the construction activities.
FOR MORE INFORMATION
The information in this bulletin is current to July 29, 2013. All dates are approximate and weather dependent. We thank you for your patience during the pile testing. For more information please contact:
Eugene Gyorfi
Project Manager, City of Edmonton

Redford refuses funding for Oilers practice rink in letter to mayor Mandel


BY GORDON KENT, EDMONTON JOURNAL

EDMONTON - Premier Alison Redford has refused Edmonton’s request for $7 million to help build a community rink beside the downtown arena, according to letters released Friday.

In a June 11 letter to Mayor Stephen Mandel, Redford states that the province already provides “significant funding” to municipalities through the Municipal Sustainability Initiative.

“Additional provincial funds are not available to support the community rink project; however, the city may wish to consider using a portion of its remaining MSI funding.”

The letter was obtained by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation through access to information legislation.

The city had hoped to receive $7 million each from the provincial and federal governments toward the $21-million rink, intended to be used by the public and as Oilers practice ice.

- I know the Edmonton Oilers say they have lots of irons in the fire about a name for the new rink, but I’d be shocked if it’s not named Rogers Centre or Rogers Palace with all the money Rogers Communications just laid on the Oilers for promotional stuff. I also hear the company might like a sports talk radio station in Edmonton.

30-32 office will be around 130m, current tallest is 146m or 149m. 45-50 condo would likely be in the 160m range.. but they can go as high as 180m there.
