SBA was retained by the Town of Orangeville to complete the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, Detailed Design and Contract Administration for the Reconstruction of Roads and Services (water main, sanitary sewer, storm sewer and water and sanitary services) on Matthew and McCarthy Streets. SBA completed the EA reconstruction project that will address aging surface and underground infrastructure to improve overall service (water, sanitary and storm) on Matthew and McCarthy Streets. The Reconstruction includes the replacement or repair of all utilities such as water main and water services, sanitary sewer and sanitary services, storm sewer on Matthew and McCarthy Streets and the replacement of the street lights and regulator traffic sign boards on Matthew Street. The construction also included a new sidewalk, storm sewer, catchbasins, subdrain, curb and gutter on Matthew Street and a new hydro duct bank on McCarthy Street. Given the 100 year plus age of many of the trees on these streets, SBA implemented a trenchless pipe burst for sanitary and directional drilling for water to minimize disturbance and to satisfy the street residents.
S. Burnett & Associates Limited is an established consulting firm that has quickly built a record for delivering strong, seamless project management across a variety of sectors. We provide our clients with access to a large network of technical experts and consultants. A cornerstone of SBA’s company philosophy is a belief in the importance of drawing on a diverse team of experts while still providing personal care to all of our clients.
We have found that the majority of issues encountered in municipal, commercial or residential engineering projects can be mitigated through open communication as well as having experienced and qualified project management throughout the process and having a strong on-site presence for the duration of the construction. More specifically, SBA has found that maintaining and promoting ongoing communication between project stakeholders, most notably the municipality, municipal engineer, the public, the contractor and subcontractors is one of the most important elements in ensuring the success of the project. It is also important that our field technicians and onsite supervisors maintain a constant flow of information with our office staff to ensure that our design team and project managers have the most up to date information on what is happening on site. It can be equally important to ensure members of the community and other stakeholders are included in the communication loop where warranted and appropriate. SBA is committed to applying these principals to all the projects we undertake.
