This project began with the analysis of the existing storm and sanitary sewer capacities within a 2 ha. catchment around the proposed development. The sewers were assessed in both the context of the existing land-use with the proposed development, as well as with the catchment developed to the ultimate O.C.P. density. H.Y. Engineering provided the City of Richmond with recommendations for upgrades to the existing storm system for this proposed development and future developments within the catchment. Once the recommendations were adopted by the City and the requirements for the development established, H.Y. Engineering provided off-site and on-site design services for the project. The on-site designs involved turning analyses and included the service locations and connections, road grading and drainage details, turning analyses, curb and driveway details. Off-site designs included roadworks drawings illustrating the upgrades required along Hazelbridge Way and Leslie Road with streetlights and street trees, and designs for storm and sanitary sewer upgrades with connections.
Storm Water Management
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.
H.Y. Engineering Ltd. was involved with this project from initiation to completion including planning services to coordinate the rezoning and subdivision of the property with the City, and preliminary design of the subdivision layout and servicing concepts and alternatives. On-site and off-site design services included lot grading design, stormwater control plans, site servicing, roadworks with bus bay, and complex retaining walls. Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) design, ESC monitoring, and construction inspection services were also provided for this project.
This large multi-phased development, situated on Burke Mountain in Coquitlam, presented unique grading and stormwater retention and infiltration challenges due to the steep slope of the mountain. H.Y. Engineering coordinated with the City of Coquitlam Planning and Development Services Departments to obtain a Development Permit for the project, which included the preparation of the site servicing concept. H.Y. Engineering also provided engineering services for detailed design of the servicing and roadworks required for this project, as well as Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) design and monitoring.
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.
