District of Saanich
4247, 4253 and 4255 Dieppe Road is a multi-use development located at the corner of Dieppe Road and Douglas Street in the District of Saanich.
Phase 1 of the project included the development of eight single family strata lots along the north property line. Phase 2 of the project consists of a new warehouse facility for Islands West Produce.
Westbrook Consulting provided topographic survey, detailed design, and contract administration and construction layout and inspection services for the project.
As part of the site servicing for Phase 1, Westbrook designed a new water main along Dieppe Road and Douglas Street in order to provide the required fire flow to the proposed development.
The new two storey warehouse in Phase 2 of the project was designed with six loading bays to allow for efficient transport and delivery of products. Westbrook carried out vehicle turning simulations to mimic the proposed use of the loading bays, parking areas and drive aisles.
The storm water management plan for both the residential and commercial phases of the project was designed to include low impact development features. Westbrook Consulting Ltd. worked with the landscape architect to design rain gardens and permeable pavement to allow for quantity and quality control before the storm water is discharged to the municipal system.
Some of the project challenges included maintaining vehicle access along Douglas Street and Dieppe Road during the construction period, modelling the existing water network and proposed infrastructure upgrades to ensure there is sufficient fire and domestic pressure for the project, and ensure the required vehicle traffic requirements were met.
Phase 1 of the project was completed in the summer of 2017 and Phase 2 is scheduled to be completed by the summer of 2018.
