H.Y. Engineering is providing Civil Engineering and Construction services for the redevelopment of the Oakridge Mall. The redevelopment involves the demolition of the majority of the existing mall and construction of approximately 14 residential towers and new retail and office space. HY Engineering’s role was to design on-site servicing to allow for phased demolition and construction and to design off-site roads, sewers and water mains to service the new development. H.Y. Engineering also provided full time inspection services and contract administration services.

SOCO in Coquitlam
SOCO by Anthem Properties is a high density mixed-use, multi-phased development in the Burquitlam-Lougheed neighbourhood of Coquitlam. It is a transit oriented development within walking distance to Lougheed Town Centre SkyTrain Station.
The civil works included a new road network, including a new road connection between North Rd & Lougheed Hwy, to help alleviate traffic congestion at the North Rd & Lougheed Hwy intersection. It also included a complex retaining wall, moment slab, and traffic barrier adjacent to the existing H-Mart building to accommodate steep slopes on the site.
The civil utilities included a large diameter sanitary sewer which connected to a large diameter Metro Vancouver trunk sewer, and included a detailed permitting process and night-work on North Road. It also included new storm sewers and watermains to service the development and new traffic signals on North Road.
The project also required permitting from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure due to proximity to Hwy #1 and the closure of Delestre Ave.
