This 29 unit townhouse development was situated on a steep embankment with forested ravines on each side of the development which presented unique grading and storm water control challenges. The design solution involved heavy storm event flows being diverted to a large trunk main sewer. Off-site design included multiple road alignment options.
ESC Design & Monitoring
H.Y. Engineering provided off-site design, on-site design, Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) Design and Monitoring, Tendering, and Construction Administration services for this 29 unit apartment building in Port Coquitlam.
H.Y. Engineering has been involved with this project from feasibility to completion. The H.Y.E. Planning Department provided our Client with a feasibility study and preliminary cost analysis for the property. Planning services included liaison with the City and neighbouring property owners/developers to establish maximum development potential and cost savings opportunities beneficial to all parties.
Once the subdivision was approved, H.Y. Engineering provided subdivision layout and off-site design, project management services, construction services, Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) design and monitoring, and inspection services. The designs illustrated a storm water management plan, lot grading and infiltration gallery details, sanitary main extension and connections, watermain extension and connections, and significant roadworks design including the upgrades of the existing 64th Avenue arterial road, the extension and completion of the 64A Avenue collector road, and a lane to be constructed behind the development all with required sidewalks, curbs, gutters, and streetlighting.
H.Y. Engineering provided planning, engineering, and survey services for this private two lot subdivision on 56th Avenue in Surrey. The property is situated atop a steep slope, with properties below, requiring additional efforts for Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) and storm water management design which involved significant coordination with the City of Surrey Planning Departments (Subdivision and Building Divisions), the City’s Engineering Department, and with various sub-consultants (geotechnical, landscape, building design, directional drilling etc.) to address the engineering concerns of the site. H.Y. Engineering prepared off-site designs illustrating lot grading, and connections to the sanitary, storm, and water services as well as provided the design for the Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) system implemented for the construction of the new home on the property.
H.Y. Engineering was retained as prime consultant to survey, design, manage, tender, and inspect this extensive 293 single-family lot subdivision in the Yorkson neighbourhood of Langley, BC. The on-site design requirements include the full layout and design of multiple roadways, lanes, and cul-de-sacs with curbs, bulges, gutters, sidewalks, cross sections, street lighting, and temporary roads as required. The design of a storm water management system involved using storm water modeling, flow calculations, the design aquatic habitat features, coordination for the design of rain gardens, and the assessment and coordination of existing detention ponds for expansion as required. Water connections from 80th Avenue were designed with calculations to ensure adequate flows. Storm sewer and sanitary sewer plans illustrated the extension of the trunk mains from the intersection of 81A Avenue and 212th Street to the intersection of 80th Avenue and 212th street.
The project further involved significant coordination with the Township of Langley for input and approvals on designs as well as for the preparation of latecomer agreements. Erosion and Sediment Control design was prepared and monitored by H.Y. Engineering as well as construction inspection with reports to the Township of Langley.
