Product Background

The Bill & Helen Norrie Library officially opened in March 2021 in Winnipeg Manitoba. Gateway Construction & Engineering LTD. was the contractor responsible for the construction of the 9.3 million dollar, 14,000 square foot Facility. Gateway chose to use Barkman Pole Base for the 11 Site lighting foundations, on-site.

Product Advantages

Taylor Wiebe, Design-Build Manager at Gateway Construction and Engineering Ltd., was very pleased with how Pole Base made their job easier. “These poles [Pole Bases] will become the standard process on all of our sites now, they were easy to install, looked great, and performed very well, and came in very cost-effective. The installation was much easier than the CIP process largely to the fact that the Anchor bolts were already installed. This made installing the light poles a breeze.”

Experience With Barkman

Mr. Wiebe also reiterated, “From the shop drawing process to delivery of the bases, to getting the lifting plate delivered to the site, there was no delay and communication was quick and responsive. It made my job easier because I didn’t have to worry if the bases were coming on time. Everything was handled very professionally and with care, which was important to me.”
