Civil Engineering

As part of a Public-Private-Partnership team, WalterFedy provided civil engineering services related to servicing and stormwater design for the expansion to Seneca College’s King Campus in King City, Ontario. The expansion includes 25 new classrooms, computer labs, specialty labs for training healthcare practitioners, a library, learning commons, and student study space. The facility also houses a new student area with a multi-purpose athletic and recreation space, gymnasium, fitness centre, informal study areas, and event spaces, partially funded by the Seneca Student Federation and the Student Athletics Association. The project targeted LEED® Gold.

 

As part of our qualification package, WalterFedy’s civil team presented an innovative stormwater pond solution as an alternative to the College’s request for a 2.5 million litre water storage tank. The pond solution complements the natural surroundings, provides improved flexibility for future expansion, and, most importantly, will eliminate the costs and energy that would have been required to prevent the water in the storage tank from freezing during the winter, offering the College substantial savings.
