Dams, Dikes & Retention Structures

Over Nuna’s 30-year history, the construction of dams, dikes and retention structures has been a key facet of our site infrastructure development services. This experience has included the construction of tailings management facilities, mine water ponds, dikes to facilitate water diversion, raising the elevation of existing infrastructure to accommodate increased capacity and frozen core dams. From large to small dam construction, we incorporate designs that are specific to the regions where we are working. In the Arctic, frozen core dams offer a cost-effective and innovative solution that takes advantage of the climate to support dam construction. In Southern Canada, we’ve incorporated more traditional dam construction techniques.
