Burnside was retained by the Regional Municipality of Halton (Region) to complete the design and construction support for 3 km of 900 mm feedermain in a busy urban area in the Town of Oakville (Town), supplying water from Zone 1 to the connecting Davis Road Booster Pumping Station.
For this project, we completed the preliminary and detailed design of 3 km of 900 mm concrete pressure pipe (CPP) feedermain along Speers Road, crossing Sixteen Mile Creek, and continuing to Davis Road.
Key features of the project included: crossing Sixteen Mile Creek via microtunneling (with shafts up to 35 m deep); crossing Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and CN Rail rights-of-way, both by horizontal auger boring; and crossing a TransNorthern petro-chemical pipeline.
As part of the work, we completed extensive stakeholder and permit | approval coordination with Conservation Halton, the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation, and Parks, Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources, and Forestry, CN Rail, TransNorthern Pipelines, MTO, and the public.
The assignment also included coordination of subsurface utility engineering and geotechnical investigations, hydraulic and transient analyses, arborist tree protection and traffic management plans, detailed design, permits and approvals, tender documents, tender support, and construction support.
