Tagish Engineering was commissioned to design, tender and inspect the construction for a brand new Pump House and Reservoir at Springbrook, located on Airport Drive near the Fire Hall and Airport. This is a critical piece of infrastructure that provides water to the Hamlet of Springbrook and replaced the existing Pumphouse for the Hamlet which had severely aged. In addition to this facility, a well control building (Booster Station) was also constructed as part of the project, at the intersection of Highway 2A and Airport Drive. The Springbrook wells are fed into the Booster Station which supplies water to the Springbrook and Junction 42 water plants. The inside of the Springbrook pump house consists of four (4) water distribution pumps, chemical feed system, HVAC unit, 250 KW indoor generator, MCC, PLC, and other various mechanical/electrical equipment. The pump house and reservoir buildings consist of a combination of cast in place concrete, precast concrete walls, and an EPDM roofing system. This was a very successful project for Red Deer County and Tagish Engineering which was completed approximately 6 months early and well within budget.
This project was a multi-disciplinary endeavor and the Tagish team was responsible for all steps of the process from conceptual design through to post construction engineering. The Tagish team was able to supply the County with a full range of team expertise from earth/grading works, underground main installations, architectural/structural services, HVAC and electrical/instrumentation services.
This was a complex project with a lot of moving targets that required excellent communication, planning and organization between all parties. Adherence to these items, continuing quality control and construction management were the deciding factors in the resultant success of the project.
