Empire Communities Avalon
Abandoned Gypsum Mine, Caledonia
Empire Communities is currently constructing a master-planned community in Caledonia, a region where historically, several gypsum mines once operated. The community, “Avalon”, will consist of nearly 3,000 new townhomes and detached homes.
Maple Site Solutions Inc. was retained Empire Communities, to drill caisson shafts with permanent liners on a portion of the site that was historically used as a gypsum mine. The shafts will be filled with concrete to infill the abandoned mine and prevent subsidence.
We are happy to have had the opportunity to contribute to this project which will create a growing new neighbourhood in Caledonia, just ten minutes outside of Hamilton.
