Sports and Recreation: Drainage Consultants

Stormwater and Drainage Consultants and Engineeers

As drainage consultants, Binnie engineers stormwater and drainage system installation solutions. We develop drainage plans for landscape, parks, sports fields and greenway design.

Parks, sports and recreation facilities need efficient and sustainable water management and drainage system installation for effective and long-lasting use of the facilities: we specialize in these services.

Examples of the water management work we do for landscape architecture, parks, sports, recreation facilities, municipal, transportation and land development projects include:

Green Stormwater Management and Environmental Design

  • Bioswale and Rain Garden Design
  • Passive Stormwater Management Design and Planning
  • Re-circulated Stormwater Irrigation Design

Drainage Management and Design

  • Greenway and Trails
  • Parks and Open Spaces
  • Sports Fields
  • Recreation Facilities
  • Infrastructure design and planning, including buildings, roads, highways, bridge approaches and more

Designing open spaces that connect people with community also requires planning for the impact of the environment, and for nature’s impact on the space.  Climate and terrain (earth, wind, rain, snow and sun) all have potential impact on developed spaces;  as drainage consultants, landscape architects, and civil engineers, we work with you to creatively engineer solutions that effectively manage those challenges.

Sports Field Project Highlight:

The City of Powell River required services to conduct Planning, Design, Contract Administration, Survey and Construction Management Services for the construction of a new eight-lane regulation sized synthetic surface athletic track.

The project included long jump pits, pole vault, shot put, discus and javelin throw to International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) standards complete with a sand-based regulation sized soccer pitch in the infield of the track.  A water drainage plan of the designated development area was a key consideration and significant to the success of the project.

We have built an excellent reputation as highly qualified and experienced project managers and design consultants for sports facilities; including sand based natural grass fields (baseball, softball, soccer, football, etc.), competition level track and field projects, community running tracks, synthetic turf sports fields and various other outdoor athletic facilities for municipalities and school districts throughout British Columbia. On the City of Powell River project, we were the Prime Consultant, Sports Facility Designer, Civil Engineer, and Surveyor.
