Kwikwetlem Business Park
Client: Kwikwetlem First Nation
Location: Port Coquitlam, BC
R. Radloff and Associates Inc. was retained to provide engineering and planning services in the land development of Kwikwetlem Indian Reserve No. 2 into a $600 million, 97-acre light-industrial & commercial development park. This included road, water, sanitary and stormwater infrastructure designs. With regards to stormwater, this development included site grading and onsite treatment works, as well as bioswales and stormwater retention.
Assessing connections to existing municipal services was key in identifying any required offsite upgrades as part of the overall design.
Site planning addressed numerous factors such as market drivers for commercial and light-industrial land, objectives of Kwikwetlem First Nation, traffic impact analysis, compatibility with municipal objectives through their official plans and bylaws, cultural amenities, site servicing, and public use. Each of these factors and others contributed to the team’s development of the Master Plan and Design Guidelines.
In addition, Radloff acted as lead on a Comprehensive Municipal-Type Service Agreement (MSA) with the neighbouring municipality to provide not only water and sanitary sewer services, but a number of other services such as road maintenance, fire rescue services and bylaw services.
