This project provided a range of improvements to the Crestwood neighbourhood in west Edmonton
The community infrastructure upgrades included improvements to drainage, underground utilities, street light poles, intersection re-alignment, sidewalks, curbs and gutters as well as the road structure.
Opus Stewart Weir provided tender drawings and was involved in field grade design for the intersection re-alignments, sidewalks, curb and gutter throughout the entire neighbourhood. We used city survey data to design the intersection re-alignments and set new sidewalk, curb and gutter grades using the updated City of Edmonton standards. The result was a new and improved drainage course and walkway for the community to enjoy.
The project posed some challenges, with low to no curb face, landscaping, flat lot grades, areas where water would pool, matching existing parking lots and exposed aggregate driveways and sidewalks as well as the tie-in to the existing curb and gutter.
Our design goals were to prevent water pooling, match new work with existing features as much as possible and most importantly, to provide a safe path around the neighbourhood.
Our project team included a design engineer, a designer and a project manager.
