The need to back fill or not would depend on where the perimeter line for the shoring would be. If the shoring is to be done inside the raised areas, probably OK, but if the shoring line goes along, or crosses a raised up area, a level working area for the equipment would be required.No filling needed. They begin shoring with the site as is, just as they have done with every other project. See Quartz/Spectra below:
Definitely think it is for Newton, as they have also finished paving the extension of Housey Street to accommodate construction vehicles entering/leaving the site, as well as staging.I believe the application for the shoring permit for Newton has been submitted - when I was in the City permits office several weeks ago, the person next to me was submitting the application for the shoring permit for the next Concord Adex development, in Bathurst and Bremner area - he did not specify the project name while we were talking, and I could not remember the name of the building to confirm.
