As civil consultants for this 5 storey mixed commercial and residential low rise project Aplin Martin, completed all civil engineering, and stormwater management. Working with the project Architect Kasian, we provided professional services for the onsite grading, fire hydrants, stormwater management plan, site servicing, the design for paving the offsite lane bordering the site, and a sanitary servicing study.
The overall site is 0.27 ha with the building taking up most of the site. Grading around the building was required to be flat for wheelchair access which added challenges to the drainage design. The Stormwater Management proved challenging due to the low allowable stormwater discharge rate for the site. Free flow was kept to a minimum in order to remain under the allowable discharge. Rooftop stormwater storage as well as a number of trench drains and area drains that directed stormwater to an underground tank located in the parkade were used, and the stormwater was pumped out at a controlled rate.
This project is currently anticipated to begin construction in 2017.
