PROJECT DESCRIPTION.

Westview Crescent loop was identified to be reconstructed in an attempt to lower the impacts of infiltration as the Town moved towards a regional sanitary system. Westview Crescent had broken curbs and sidewalks on the surface, while the deep utilities (water and sewer) mains were aging, allowing excess infiltration of ground and surface water. Tagish Engineering Ltd. designed and managed a complete overhaul of the street, from new water and sewer mains and a complete rebuild of all curbs & gutter, and asphalt. The result was less infiltration for the Town, and a more aesthetically pleasing street for residents.

 

ENGINEERING HIGHLIGHTS.

The Building Canada Fund related projects were large projects with very aggressive timelines. Tagish Engineering was required to work extremely efficiently to ensure the project milestones were achieved throughout conceptual engineering to completion of paving. This was one of three projects of this magnitude being designed and constructed for the Town of Bowden in 2010. It required intense planning and solid design choices to be successful. 2010 was an exceptionally wet year which caused delays within the tight timelines. Due to this, a large Contractor was required and therefore construction administration and inspection was very important to ensure project quality was not compromised. Tagish had a dedicated construction team to ensure inspections, surveys, material testing, and contract administration was completed.

 

CONSTRUCTION HIGHLIGHTS.

  • The very old ungrounded infrastructure was fully replaced renewing its lifespan and lowering infiltration impacts.

  • Emergency vehicle access was maintained throughout construction.

  • Uninterrupted sanitary & water service was maintained throughout construction.

  • Multiple drainage issues were corrected.
