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.
