Located in the Village of Manotick, the Rideau Forest Estates Subdivision is a rural estate-lot residential development with a total of 11 development phases. Residential lots are approximately two acres in size, and are serviced by private wells and septic systems.
Our firm provided civil engineering design and contract administration services for the development of each phase of the subdivision. Design services included preparing SWM Reports, which outlined the stormwater design approach to be implemented for a particular phase of development. We coordinated and participated in reviewing background studies required for the approval of each phase of the development, including geotechnical, hydrogeological, archaeological, environmental impact statement, environmental site assessment, and tree conservation reports. In addition, we conducted Traffic and Noise Impact studies for the subdivision’s development, as well as streetlight design and utility design and coordination. Supporting studies, reports and design drawings were submitted to the local review agencies for approval prior to construction.
Our engineering services involved obtaining the necessary approvals at each phase of development, including the Ministry of the Environment Environmental Compliance Approval for the proposed SWM works. We also provided contract administration services throughout construction and issued final certification following completion.
