Infrastructure Renewal, Design & Construction
Designing life cycle infrastructure solutions for future generations
Solid infrastructure is the hidden and unseen foundation of our communities. Beneath our streets, an intricate maze of pipes, cables, and infrastructure exists to provide critical services to homes and businesses within our communities. As this infrastructure ages, renewal and rehabilitation is required to maintain a high level of service.
At GM Blueplan, we possess the knowledge and experience to provide full life cycle infrastructure solutions to municipal communities. We can assess, design, and administer the construction of a wide range of infrastructure projects that will serve future generations — infrastructure solutions that are being planned 50 or 100 year in advance, due to technological advancements in both products and installations.
These infrastructure solutions need to be built to serve future generations. They must account for increased populations, climate change implications, and the needs of our changing population.
Infrastructure Renewal Expertise
If your municipality is undergoing road reconstruction or other infrastructure renewal, it is important to consider how to provide long-term value to the community.
At GM BluePlan, we offer utility renewal services coupled with transportation expertise to provide our clients with complete and robust plans for infrastructure renewal. Our team can bundle sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and water main replacement with roadworks to provide an improved cost-benefit while decreasing the frequency of construction for area residents.
Our team also offers public consultation, construction inspection, and administration expertise to support infrastructure renewal projects.
Construction Review / Inspection
During the construction phase of a project, it is important to understand the underlying intent of the designs. We provide engineering services to ensure continuity between the design and the construction phases of a project, including construction reviews, site inspection, and contract administration.
Our approach to infrastructure design is focused on the full life cycle, by building systems and facilities that last and can be easily maintained. We offer infrastructure design for a range of projects, including linear infrastructure, water facilities, wastewater facilities, and stormwater facilities.
Emergency Power Assessments
GM BluePlan has the expertise to help appliance owners successfully navigate the road to compliance for a new emergency generator, upgrades to an existing emergency generator system, a new fire pump system, or upgrades to existing fuel, electrical, and ventilation systems.
When completing an emergency power assessment, the team at GM BluePlan will work closely with you and the TSSA to ensure you have a worry-free source of emergency power that continues to meet provincial codes for years to come.
