The City of Burnaby has an ongoing initiative to replace aging watermains and make hydraulic improvements to areas in demand. Binnie has completed 19 watermain replacement programs on behalf of the City over the many years we have worked together.
On a recent project, the 2014 Watermain Package C, the City retained Binnie to provide preliminary design, detailed design, and contract administration services. The project involved 2,643 metres of watermain replacement. Copper connections older than 25-30 years, or made of polybutylene, were replaced. Binnie recommended final watermain alignments based on cost benefits and construction impact. Further, Binnie provided a review of fire hydrant spacing and incorporated that information into our design to ensure adequate coverage in the project area.
