Learn More About Support-in-Place (SIP) – Toronto Hydro
  • SIP is an alternative method to relocating utility infrastructure, whereby hydro infrastructure is temporarily supported using concrete encasement and steel beams. 
  • Advantage of SIP is reduced impact to road users and pedestrians as well as less power interruptions for properties in the vicinity of the future station.
  • The SIP method will be used at Mount Pleasant during the shallow excavation periods.
