Conway says, in total, crews placed 585,516 cubic metres of roller-compacted concrete this year, roughly 30 percent more than was placed last year.

To date, 1.2 million cubic metres of roller-compacted concrete has been placed on the project.

The spillways buttress is one of three large concrete buttresses or foundations that is being built to support the Site C powerhouse, spillways and the dam itself.

The powerhouse buttress was completed in October 2018, and the dam buttress is scheduled to begin in 2020.
