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.
Off-Site Civil Designs
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.
Georgetown is a multi-phased and multi-year mixed-use development in the City Centre area within the City of Surrey. Anthem Properties is nearing completion of Phase 1, which is comprised of the first, 30-storey residential tower with mixed use commercial podium. There are nearly ten subsequent phases planned and H.Y Engineering is currently working on the detailed design for Phases 2, 3, and 4 across the street.
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.
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.
