Greenwood Estates Residential Subdivision, Coalhurst, Alberta
Martin Geomatic Consultants (MGCL) completed project management, engineering planning and design, legal surveys, topographical surveys, construction support, and contract administration for this 53-lot residential subdivision in Coalhurst, Alberta. Surrounded by existing development within the town, the infill nature of this site provided some unique challenges for the design of the grading plan to tie-in to existing grades while accommodating drainage. This involved new concrete swales and rehabilitation of an existing lane bordering the development area, which required the relocation of an existing gas line, coordination with shallow electric and communication utilities, crossing deep water and sewer utilities, installation of new storm sewer system that included pipe, orifice plate, manholes, and catch-basins, and improving access for residents to the existing garages, driveways, and fence gates. Public communication and accommodating access for residents during construction of the lane involved the teamwork of the consultant, contractor, and the town.

Martin Geomatic Consultants undertook the planning and design of all site works for this 150-acre residential development. MGCL performed all-storm water management modeling, designed all facilities, and obtained all government and local authority approvals.
