DST and the Whitesand First Nation Career Fair

On April 18, DST Consulting Engineers attended The Whitesand First Nation career fair. This fair was hosted by Whitesand First Nation and held at their new multiplex facility.


The Whitesand First Nation is an Ojibwa First Nation with a land base of 615 acres. The community of Armstrong Settlement is the main community in the area. In June 2008, their total registered population was 1086 people, of which their on-reserve population was 311.


Bob Wright, Client Liaison from our Thunder Bay office, made the trip up to represent DST at the career fair. This was one of their busiest career fairs yet, with a huge variety of booths and many people in attendance. Plus, now many young people in Whitesand FN and Armstrong can be seen sporting DST sunglasses.


It was a wonderful opportunity to visit the community and share information with students and community members about potential future careers in the engineering industry.

Nanticoke Stack Demolition: 2 stacks, 650 ft, 10 seconds – HD Drone Footage

On Wednesday, February 28th, the Nanticoke, Ontario skyline was changed forever as the two 650 ft stacks at the Nanticoke OPG plant were toppled by a controlled explosive blast.  After months of preparation work leading up to blast day the stacks were down in a matter of seconds.  DST was part of the demolition crew working together with Delsan AIM and Rakowski Cartage & Wreckage to ensure the demolition was completed efficiently, precisely, and most of all, safely.

Watch as the incredible planning process unfolds.  Covering the final stages of preparation, this video features technical experts from the project discussing the complex nature of explosive demolition projects and the challenge faced by the team with this project: demolishing two 650 ft stacks, each with four inner flues, located on the shores of Lake Erie.  Highlighting the extreme care for health and safety standards and the environment, and then finally the big event – demolition – this is an informative ‘how to’ on executing the perfect controlled, explosive demolition.
