Client: Alderville First Nation
Project Description: Subdivision Design and Inspection

Time Line: November 2010 to Present
Project Manager: Stephen Burnett

Client Category: First Nation
Service Category: Land Development

Alderville First Nation required further residential development to meet the needs of their growing community.  To address the increase in housing demand, S. Burnett & Associates Ltd. (SBA) was retained to develop a subdivision plan for the First Nation community.  The development supplied the community with the design for 24 new residential lots, although only eight of the lots were serviced during this phase of the project. The subdivision plan involves approximately 800 m of road, the road layout, grading and drainage plans for the individual lots as well as the subdivision as a whole. The design also included layout locations for the septic system and private wells.

The Scope of work performed by SBA includes:

  • Obtaining and analyzing soil samples
  • Full time inspection and contract administration
  • Performing reasonable use minimum lot size calculations for the subdivision
  • Evaluating potential environmental impacts via an Environmental Screening report as prescribed by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEAA)
  • Estimating the cost for the subdivision development based on the design specifications
  • Negotiating with the local contractor for the construction and local use of equipment and labour
