H.Y. Engineering worked with Chernoff Thompson Architects to develop the site servicing for the new Fire Hall No. 8 in Abbotsford. The off-site servicing involved the design of the new driveway, and upgrades to the curbs, gutters and sidewalks, as well as the design of aquatic features for storm water infiltration and retention. The on-site components included lot grading details, parking layout, and designs for water, storm, and sanitary service connections. H.Y. Engineering Ltd. also provided tender and contract administration services, as well as construction inspection for both off-site and on-site civil construction with reporting to the City of Abbotsford.
The Stores Building was the first phase of the Advanced Rare Isotope Laboratory (ARIEL) project on the TRIUMF campus at Wesbrook Mall, UBC. The ARIEL project was constructed within an existing site and infrastructure system. H.Y. Engineering Ltd. prepared the designs for the on-site service connections and the relocation of existing storm, sanitary, and water mains. Further, H.Y. Engineering Ltd. provided a site grading plan with drainage details, on-site road works, curbs, gutters, and sidewalks, and also designed the Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) system for surface areas affected during construction.
H.Y. Engineering Ltd. worked with Chernoff Thompson Architects for the successful completion of the Stores building in 2012.
The Vancouver School Board retained H.Y. Engineering Ltd. to assist in the necessary civil engineering works required to retain the existing heritage building of Queen Mary Elementary School in Vancouver and demolish the secondary building in order to construct a new structure for the classrooms and gymnasium. The civil works included upgrades to all on-site services as well as minor off-site works to address applicable service connections.
The Building Permit process required two (2) phases for the civil engineering works. The first phase included the preparation of detailed design drawings and obtaining the necessary approvals from the City of Vancouver in order to complete a temporary servicing concept to service the portables. The second phase included the preparation of detailed design drawings and obtaining the necessary approvals from the City of Vancouver in order to complete the permanent servicing concept to service the new re-built school building.
This project involved close liaison with the Vancouver School Board, the City of Vancouver Engineering Department, the project Architect (IBI Group), various sub-consultants, and contractors.
The City of Surrey Fire Hall No. 14 was demolished and rebuilt to accommodate a larger building structure. The new building required minimal off-site civil engineering works and the necessary on-site servicing design works. The detailed design included the parking lot grading and all upgrades to the existing site servicing systems.
H.Y. Engineering Ltd. coordinated the servicing design with the Architectural Site Plans and consulted with the Fire Chief for numerous servicing and design details. We completed this project with Chernoff Thompson Architects, the various sub-consultants, and the project Contractor.
The new RCMP building in Gibsons, BC is a beautiful new location to host the RCMP. The site has a number of visual sustainable features on site including a retention pond, bio-filtration channel and eco-grid parking stalls, which enhance the on-site design of the site.
H.Y. Engineering Ltd. designed all the on-site civil works for RCMP building including the retention pond which is a beautiful visual feature that controls the flow of the water before exiting the site, as well as, the bio-filtration channel which cleans the water on the site before entering the City system. H.Y. Engineering Ltd. also designed the parking stall locations with the use of eco-grid parking stalls.
