Concepts to Completion
Residential Development, Victoria, BC
Many projects currently under construction require extensive retaining wall erection. To provide value added design services to our Clients, our Team coordinates closely with the project Geotechnical Engineer to determine early on how much surplus rock could be realized and what the anticipated quality of the blasted rock will be. Working with rock blasting companies, Islander can then alter drill patterns to create boulders for subbase fills and walls, or smaller aggregate for trench backfill and subbase gravels. Further processing by a rock crusher can produce smaller aggregate for road base. By modeling the site and understanding the earthworks mass balance, the TEAM at Islander can significantly reduce project costs
Mixed Use Residential / Commercial Development (Insert picture of Tillicum / Burnside project
On this mixed use Part 3 building code project, Islander worked with a variety of different consultants that form part of the building team, including but not limited to, Architect, Structural Engineer, Mechanical Engineer, Electrical Engineer and Landscape. Working with the design team early on in the process enabled the Client to realize a parking variance, provide green building features like raingardens and bio-swales, while at the same time maximizing density in a SmartGrowth building concept.

Drainage calculations and visual inspections determined that several sections of municipal infrastructure needed remediation and replacement.
