This large multi-phased development, situated on Burke Mountain in Coquitlam, presented unique grading and stormwater retention and infiltration challenges due to the steep slope of the mountain. H.Y. Engineering coordinated with the City of Coquitlam Planning and Development Services Departments to obtain a Development Permit for the project, which included the preparation of the site servicing concept. H.Y. Engineering also provided engineering services for detailed design of the servicing and roadworks required for this project, as well as Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) design and monitoring.
Services: Construction Layouts
H.Y. Engineering was invited to act as prime consultant for the parking lot expansion at the Langley Memorial Hospital. H.Y. Engineering Ltd. worked with the Township of Langley to obtain engineering and planning requirements and approvals for the expansion. On-site design services involved storm sewer drainage design, and roadworks drawings with parking lot layout, line markings, and grading details. The use of rain gardens for stormwater treatment, retention, and infiltration purposes were incorporated into the design. H.Y. Engineering Ltd. put out the call for tender of the civil, electrical, and landscape construction aspects of the project and provided contract administration and coordination on behalf of the Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation. The project met all Township standards and completed in 2014 with 710 new parking spaces for the hospital.
This subdivision included the creation of 9 single family residential lots. The existing house on the property was retained on one of the new lots and the overall subdivision concept has maintained the half acre (gross) lot size in the neighborhood. In addition, our subdivision design also includes a concept that will interface with future development on the north side of 27th Avenue.
The site servicing included significant road upgrades as well as the construction of a new cul-de-sac bulb. The ultimate site grading was addressed through minimal retaining walls in order to address undeveloped neighboring properties. In addition, the development also required full storm sewer, sanitary sewer, and water main upgrades in order to service the current and future development. Tree preservation was a concern in this area and a significant number of trees were retained with covenants and unique building envelope designs.
The subject site is adjacent to the Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest Park (located on the east side of 144th Street) and also includes a greenbelt area located at the rear of the proposed lots (dedicated to the City as parkland). This greenbelt is in addition to the existing greenbelt that is running east to west and serves as a connection to the Sunnyside Areas Park for wildlife and pedestrian traffic.
This project required close interaction with the neighboring property owners in order to develop a concept that is consistent with the immediate and surrounding areas as well as ensuring proper interface with existing and future development.
This multi-family development includes a total of 80 townhouse units within an urban residential area of Morgan Heights. The off-site works involved road upgrades along the frontages of the site, storm sewer upgrades, and new sanitary sewer construction. This project also included street light design, water meter chamber design, and a grading design. The typical on-site servicing for this project involved storm sewer, sanitary sewer, and water main connections for the subject site.
This project was completed with Morgan Heights Ventures Ltd. and Robert Ciccozzi Architecture Inc.
This multi-family project includes a townhouse development in the North Grandview Heights area. The off-site servicing included; new water main construction, new sanitary sewer force main construction, and significant road upgrades along 156th Street. On-site services for this development included storm sewer, sanitary sewer, and water main connections, as well as the design of a water meter chamber.
