beaver bank, NS
An unserviced 120-lot residential development in Beaver Bank, north of Halifax between Highway 101 and 102, done under a Development Agreement. There were a number of environmentally sensitive areas (wetlands, watercourses) within the development that required care and attention in the design and construction of the streets and services. The project also included numerous trails within a public park and a large conservation area.
KVM was involved from the concept development stage up to construction and certification of the streets and services. KVM assisted in the negotiation of the Development Agreement, completed the detailed design, prepared construction cost estimates and contract documents, administrated the construction contract, provided construction inspection services, and prepared the record drawings and municipal takeover package. KVM also completed the detailed design of the public park and trail system.
