Management of Transfer Station and Landfill Projects
The Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine (RDKS) retained Binnie to help manage the design and construction of the Thornhill Transfer Station and Forcemain Ridge Landfill. The objective of the project is to improve solid waste infrastructure within the District, thereby providing cleaner water and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This project will ultimately ensure protection of the public health and environmental stewardship.
Our overall role is to provide project management, administration, and project control services. We are responsible for evaluating and prioritizing deliverables and requirements on behalf of the RDKS, ensuring that their interests are properly addressed at all times. We actively communicate with stakeholders and coordinate various departments within the RDKS.
During the design phase, we were responsible for formulating and managing project plans. We defined objectives, identified key milestones, reviewed overall progress, conducted design reviews, and engaged in ongoing risk assessment/management.
In the procurement phase, we supported the RDKS and the lead design engineer by helping them navigate through several multi-million dollar construction contracts.
During construction, we tracked costs, prepared budget reviews, tracked construction progress against established baselines, and ensured that the project met their objectives.
As of September 2016, construction of the Thornhill Transfer Station and Forcemain Ridge Landfill was wrapping up.
Binnie continues to remain active on several other solid waste management projects in the area.
