Clarkson Village Mixed Use Residential
The Clarkson Village Mixed Use Residential Development is a proposed four storey condominium building with ground floor retail and an ancillary office/retail building. HUSSON was retained to complete the functional servicing design, stormwater management, grading and servicing plans in support of the re-zoning application for the site.
The site layout and grading design presented challenges to provide the desired intensification in the area, while maintaining existing parkland and open space blocks. This required HUSSON to work with an integrated design team including the architect, geotechnical engineering, landscape architect, and the developer.
The site is located on lands that were previously located in the Turtle Creek Floodplain. One of the requirements of the re-zoning application was a floodline study to review existing flooding conditions and propose improvements to the system. A new culvert across the site was proposed which better suited the proposed development and mitigated potential flooding for residents and businesses upstream of the site.
411 Victoria Park (Toronto)
Located in the heart of the City of Toronto this 19.7 acre re-development project will see the existing underutilized lands transformed into a mixed use residential and retail development. The project will feature a 4-6 storey condo/apartment building, town homes and a LEED certified commercial retail hub of approximately 100,000 square feet.
HUSSON has completed the Functional Servicing and Stormwater Management Report which included analysis of the existing services on site for re-location, evaluation of the downstream sewer capacities, site grading and servicing options and determining a suitable stormwater management solution to meet the City’s Wet Weather Flow Guidelines.
HUSSON has also provided proforma cost analysis for both the residential and commercial components of the plan. The detailed design for the development, including innovative underground storage solutions were reviewed with Development Engineering and Toronto Water to determine the proposed stormwater management system.
HUSSON will also provide construction administration for the site works, scheduled to commence in 2016.
Lowes Home Improvement (West Scarborough)
The Lowe’s of West Scarborough site included the demolition of an existing Wal-Mart building and construction of a new Lowe’s Home Improvement centre. HUSSON was retained as project manager’s and site engineer to coordinate the consultant team and municipal approvals.
The site engineering design included relocation of existing services that were in conflict with the proposed building and re- grading the site to meet the Lowe’s development criteria. Through the process the stormwater management infrastructure for the site was upgraded to meet the City of Toronto’s Wet Weather Flow Management Guidelines. This project was one of the first in Scarborough to meet the new standard. HUSSON worked closely with the geotechnical consultant and Technical Services staff to find a solution for the site to meet the new criteria.
Gilead Place - Loft Townhouses (Toronto)
HUSSON was retained to provide engineering services for this landmark townhouse development in the historic Corktown area of Toronto.
HUSSON completed a Functional Servicing Report in support of the redevelopment and intensification of this now iconic downtown property. The report outlined the servicing options for the townhouse block and determined a suitable stormwater management solution to meet the City of Toronto’s Wet Weather Flow Guidelines.
555 Sherbourne Street (Toronto)
HUSSON was retained to provide engineering services for the expansion of an existing development in the City of Toronto, at 555 Sherbourne Street. There are existing commercial and residential buildings on the site, which is approximately 1.9ha.
HUSSON has been involved in the development process from the initiation of the project, and has completed both a Functional Servicing Report and Stormwater Management Report in support of the redevelopment, which includes a new residential tower, townhouses and live/work studio spaces.
The reports outlined the servicing options for the proposed tower, townhouse blocks and live/work spaces and determined a suitable stormwater management solution to meet the City of Toronto’s Wet Weather Flow Guidelines.
The project is currently in the final stages of design, and is scheduled for construction in the near future.
First Meadowvale Centre (Mississauga)
This 4.7 ha LEED Gold Certified development is a redevelopment site which included modifications and renovations to an existing building and the design and construction of a new LEED Certified office buildings complete with underground parking.
HUSSON completed the civil engineering for the site which included a Functional Servicing and Stormwater Management report for the City of Mississauga and Region of Peel. As this was an intensification of an existing site the boundary services needed to be reviewed for capacity and fire protection requirements. An innovative stormwater management system was designed and implemented on the site which stored the stormwater in underground chambers to meet pre-development flows. Infiltration of stormwater was reviewed as an option for additional LEED credit but the native soils were not conducive.
