Local & Remote Engineering
Our engineering division was created to serve as a tool to ensure your projects are designed to function efficiently and effectively with a well-implemented risk management strategy.
TRANSPORTATION & INFRASTRUCTURE ENGINEERING SERVICES
We utilize our internal capabilities and extensive network of consultants to form a high performing team of engineering professionals to execute transportation infrastructure projects, delivering roadway assets to private, municipal, and federal clients. Our project team will complete the following tasks as part of the consulting engineering process:
Detailed Topographic Surveys, Engineering Surveys, Drainage Surveys, Legal/Cadastral Surveys
Wetland Assessments, and Environmental permitting
Hydrology and Hydrotechnical Assessments
Geometric Assessment, Intersection Analysis, Preliminary Design & Detailed Design of Roadways
Plan preparation, calculation of design quantities, detailed construction cost estimates, tender special provisions and specification amendments, and utility agreements
Tender preparation and Client Assistance in evaluation and selection of contractor
Project Management, Contract Administration, Construction Supervision and Site Inspections
Construction Quality Assurance including Survey and Materials Testing Measurements,
Post-Construction and Warranty Inspection, including Final details, record drawings, Warranty Inspections and Construction Completion Certificates
Geotechnical Site Investigations
Site investigations are used to determine many subsurface soil conditions for bridge and roadway projects or can help with pit planning operations
Quality Control and Materials Testing Services
During construction works, to ensure that a construction contractor is meeting the design specifications for the project. Material testing services may be provided which will include:
Site Inspections for geotechnical concerns
Site Inspections for geotechnical concerns
On-site density testing for backfill and compaction.
On-site concrete testing
On-site ACP testing and sampling for laboratory testing
Environmental Assessments, Applications and Reporting
There are many aspects which require a key understanding of the environmental impacts and regulations prior to design or construction. The key services that we are able to provide would include:
Completion of Environmental Impact Assessments such as wetland (QWSP), fisheries (QAES), wildlife, topsoil, vegetation, or noxious weed assessments.
Assist with the completion of various environmental regulatory applications for approval/authorizations that includes Fisheries Act Approvals or Water Act Approvals
Pre and post construction disturbance monitoring, reclamation certification.
Assist in preparation of applications for gravel pits.
Preparation with the writing of Environmental Construction Operation Plans (ECO) for County constructed projects and assist in reviewing ECO Plans for contracted projects.
As required can advise and complete onsite monitoring for all aspects of construction projects including reclamation monitoring.
Historical Resource Overview.
Bridge Engineering Services
Scheduled Level 1 Bridge Information Management (BIM) inspections and specialized Level 2 bridge and culvert inspections would be provided. Level 2 inspections could include detailed girder inspection, timber coring inspections, culvert barrel inspections.
Emergency Bridge Inspections
High flow events or traffic impact related events occur on bridge structures and it is important to quickly ascertain the impacts of these events on bridge, culvert, or drainage infrastructure.
Bridge and Culvert Assessments
Assessments on bridges, culverts are required to help determine various maintenance options available to maximize structures service life as well as different replacement options and provide the most cost-effective replacement alternative minimize disruption to the travelling public.
Bridge Repairs and Tendering
Where bridge maintenance is required, our team can coordinate any detailed design, contract tendering, and construction inspection services required to complete these repairs.
Stormwater Modelling and Management
We will be able to model a variety of rural and urban stormwater management, redirection, and retention systems. Furthermore, we are also able to complete rehabilitation and upgrades to existing drainage systems, preparing them for changes in land use, resiliency for a changing climate, while ensuring erosion and sediment control remain a top priority.
