EMS Storage Facility

Client: Snyder and Associates Inc.

Owner: Region of Durham

Valdor was retained to prepare the site servicing and grading plan as well as a stormwater management report for a storage facility on Durham Region’s site at 4040 Anderson Street in the Town of Whitby.  The project included a storage building and parking lot expansion.  The grading design required special attention to integrate the parking lot and building onto the site and minimize the grading transition to limit the extent of work.  Co-ordination was also required along the common property line with respect to the Region’s adjacent planned police station site.  The servicing design included new sanitary and water service connections which were designed to service the storage facility as well as the adjacent police station site.  The site servicing design and construction staging were carefully planned to minimize disruption to the operation of the existing EMS facility.


North Wentworth Twin Pad Arena,

Hamilton, Ontario

Client: RDH Architects

Owner: City of Hamilton

Valdor was retained to prepare a site servicing and grading design as well as a stormwater management report for a new twin pad arena on an 8.5 hectare (21.0 acre) site with 313 parking spaces for the City of Hamilton.  The project included the review and comment on the site layout in order to finalize the site plan, the design of new sanitary and water services to the site and the investigation of existing site services and utilities.  A grading design was prepared in conjunction with an iterative cut / fill analysis using our digital terrain modelling software to balance the earthworks within the site.  The project also included the preparation of a stormwater management report detailing the design of the bio-retention swales.  The existing arena will be demolished upon completion of the new building.

Robert C. Austin Operations Centre,

Halton Hills (Georgetown), Ontario

Client: RDH Architects Inc.

Owner: Town of Halton Hills

Valdor prepared a site servicing and grading design as well as stormwater management report for a new operations centre building and parking lot for the Town of Halton Hills. 


The design included new water and sanitary service connections including service permit application approvals with Halton Region. The grading design integrated the building and parking lot with the topography of the existing works yard and neighbouring properties.


The stormwater management system included on-site stormwater quality and quantity control which was achieved through the implementation of a green roof system, an enhanced grassed swale, permeable pavers as well as a constructed wetland to satisfy the requirements of the Town of Halton Hills and the Credit Valley Conservation Authority.


Public Works and Environmental Services Operations Facility,

City of Quinte West (Trenton), Ontario

Client: RDH Architects Inc.

Owner: City of Quinte West

Valdor prepared a site servicing and grading design as well as stormwater management report for a new operations centre building and parking lot for the City of Quinte West.

The design included site servicing, a new water service connection, the construction of a municipal sanitary sewer, the extension of a municipal road and expansion of a stormwater management pond. The site was graded to create two distinct levels in order to integrate the building and parking lots with the topography of the site with consideration for the ultimate grading for the future surrounding industrial subdivision.

The stormwater management system for the higher area of the site included an oil / grit separator and off-site SWM pond.  Stormwater management for the lower area of the site was provided by an on-site constructed wetland.
