Highway 400 and Highway 9
As sub-consultants to HCIO, our firm is engaged in the contract management of the extensive landscape component for the highway improvements. Our firm was involved in the sourcing, quality control, on site storage and installation supervision of large quantities of trees and shrubs. The landscape component included creek rerouting and rehabilitation, remedial planting for storm water management facilities and the installation of natural evergreen snow barriers along the frontage of the highway. The design and installation of extensive storm water ponds, meandering creeks, weirs and flow reducing planting will greatly enhance the ecological characteristics of the highway corridor. Our firm is monitoring progress, quality of installation and warranty issues over the course of this contract.
