No. 4 Road Pump Station
Winner: 2012 Award of Excellence (Municipal Category), Assoc. of Consulting Engineering Companies BC
Winner: 2011 Project of the Year, BC Public Works Association
Aplin Martin designed and coordinated the construction of the No.4 Road Drainage Pump System. The design team was able to reuse the existing wet well, applying structural modifications to improve the hydraulics and facilitate the installation of new pumps, thereby doubling the capacity of the station to 6.0cm per second. This project involved a number of innovative principles: the dyke was raised to accommodate a plaza and lookout area, public art was incorporated into the landscape design and building design complimented themes found in the surrounding neighbourhood.
