This challenging subdivision required constant coordination and consultation with the neighboring property owners regarding tree removal/retention, and half road construction. This subdivision was able to create a connection through this neighborhood for both vehicle traffic and pedestrians while maintaining the neighborhood character created by the surrounding developments. Our services included preparation of the subdivision layout and the interface with the surrounding properties, obtaining Council approval for the rezone, designing the; new road networks, storm sewer systems, sanitary sewer systems, and water mains, coordination with the project contractor to inspect all civil works, and address ESC monitoring to confirm bylaw compliance.
Site & Topographical Surveys
The civil works included a new road arterial road, a new local road, and a new lane as well as road upgrades along existing 84th Avenue. A new DCC funded sanitary trunk sewer was installed along the project frontage and downstream to the Carvolth bus exchange to provide a much-needed bypass for the Township of Langley’s sewer system in this neighborhood. Complex cost sharing agreements and latecomer applications were used to clarify funding responsibilities for shared frontages and shared downstream upgrades as well as negotiations for road right-of-ways.
Other civil works included new watermains, perimeter grading, street lighting, storm sewers, and erosion & sediment control.
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.
