VRCA 2020/2021 Award of Excellence

NorLand is very pleased to highlight a great accomplishment from one of our longest running business units. Pacific Blasting & Demolition was awarded Silver for the Award of Excellence as Trade Contractor in the $4 Million to $10 Million category, for their work on the Viterra Pacific Terminal PAC3 Demolition. They were chosen as some of the best out of the total 237 entries across 89 different projects, and it’s so important to highlight special achievements and excellent performance from the NorLand family.


The PAC3 Demolition involved the deconstruction of three 100-year-old structures, including a railcar building, grain processing building, and grain storage silos at The Port of Vancouver. This was a complex and meticulously planned project including the removal of asbestos, lead, mercury, and other hazardous materials, and careful demolition of the structures floor by floor – most of which was done from temporary ground structures due to structural integrity concerns.

Pacific’s own Katherine McCann wrote an excellent article for Demolition Magazine that covers the project in detail, showcasing some more great photos from the job.
