Project Description

Robinson Land Development (RLD) were retained to provide a servicing, grading, and stormwater management (SWM) design for a proposed three building campus located at 383/ 385 Terry Fox Drive in the City of Ottawa, Ontario. The industrial zoned site included one existing building and two new 5-storey buildings with associated parking.

The project also included road modifications (RMA) for the extension of the existing Hines Road to provide an additional access to the campus.

The portion of the site to be developed was 7.44 hectares in area and was bounded by existing developments on all four sides. Due to the high imperviousness of the site, four on-site SWM facilities were constructed to meet the quantity and quality storage requirements. The facilities were designed to provide level two protection by the use of river stone, granular, and sand layers to filter the runoff. Inlet control devices (ICD) were utilized in the outlets of each facility to control the rate of the stormwater outflow from the site.

The site grading involved the detailed grading design of over 35,000 square metres of asphalt area which was accomplished via minimal underground infrastructure. Specifically, the majority of the site was designed to sheet flow to the on-site SWM facilities.

The proposed buildings were serviced with water and sanitary via connections to the existing infrastructure within Hines Road. The buildings were also provided with storm services via a connection to the existing storm sewer located on the adjacent 5050 Innovation site.

RLD was also engaged to seek approvals for Environmental Compliance Applications (ECA) which required extensive facilitation with the MOECC, City and neighbouring property (which contained an existing SWM facility previously designed to control and treat drainage from a portion of the site). Due to the complexity of the project, four ECA applications were required to be submitted to the MOECC for the site.
