Since 2007 the City of Port Coquitlam has been developing and implementing the Lions Park Master Plan. The plan included construction of a new washroom facility, picnic shelter, pathway, playground, and water park. H.Y. Engineering Ltd. provided on-site civil design for the storm, sanitary and water main connections required for the upgrades as well as construction administration and inspection services during the construction of the washroom facility. The washroom facility was completed in 2014 with other phased aspects of the plan being constructed in years following.
Lions Park Washroom Facility and Picnic Shelter in Port Coquitlam
ARIEL (Advanced Rare Isotope Laboratory) at UBC
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.
Langley Memorial Hospital Parking Lot Expansion
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.
St. John’s Hospice Care Facility at UBC
H.Y. Engineering Ltd. was pleased to be a part of the development of the first community hospice residence in Vancouver’s West Side. Working closely with the Order of St. John Building Committee and Rositch Hemphill and Associates Architects, H.Y. Engineering Ltd. provided on-site design solutions for the connection of the sanitary and storm sewer mains, as well as on-site grading details in keeping with the project requirements and that of the UBC grounds. Off-site designs were prepared for upgrades to the crosswalk (including curbs and letdowns) extending from the project site across to the gardens at the southern corner of the site.
Fire Hall No. 1 in Port Moody
This project included a new fire hall located in Port Moody for construction of a new building. The off-site servicing involved storm sewer main upgrades along the frontage of the site. The site drainage has been addressed with bio-swales for natural drainage to the existing off-site watercourse. On-site servicing included the typical storm sewer, sanitary sewer, and water main connections to the subject site. The on-site parking lot included lot grading design for the property as well.
This project was completed with the City of Port Moody and Chernoff Thompson Architects.
