Assiniboine Park is the largest park in Winnipeg. Redevelopment of the zoo and the Children’s Nature & Adventure Playground area, building the Qualico Family Centre, and the expansion of the duck pond demanded accurate drawings showing where all features such as trees, paths, utilities and structures were located, with geodetic elevations throughout the entire study area.
Many three-dimensional elements were critical. This was achieved using our HDS system, complemented with our robotic total station, all of which were unified and controlled by a GPS-derived network. We collected over 147 million points from 50 set-up locations for the playground and duck pond components alone. Within the zoo, data regarding tree height, drip line, trunk diameter and species were collected and added to the drawing.
University of Manitoba
At the University of Manitoba, two prominent buildings, Pembina Hall and Tache Hall, are undergoing a major expansion and conversion of use. We provided the architect with drawings showing site features needed for design purposes using a combination of GPS, Robotic total station and traditional level and rod. Level circuits were run through a maze of corridors from crawlspace to rooftop, picking up several tie-in points at each level.
The floor elevations, roof lines and other vertical components were essential to ensure a compatible design with the existing structures. HDS was used to gather accurate information about the relationship of an underground tunnel and the ground above it, as well as the relationship of rooftop cupolas, parapets and building facades.
Portage La Prairie Recreation Multiplex
The Portage La Prairie Recreation Multiplex is a state-of-the-art recreational facility offering two ice rinks, an indoor water park and fitness area. A combined boundary survey and topographic site plan of the project area was first completed using GPS and conventional total station. This was relied upon by the architects to design the building. Once construction commenced, we established multiple grid lines for building control and 900 pile locations were staked out. In the pool area, complex curvilinear wall sections were laid out.
Canoe Club Condominium
Our involvement in the Canoe Club Condominium began with the collection of site information and preparation of a topographic site plan complete with contours, utilities and boundary location. Once the building design was completed, we established horizontal and vertical survey control for construction, set up building grid lines, staked out pile locations and laid out catch basins.
A Building Location Certificate was prepared at the foundation stage of construction and upon completion. Each of the 102 units and the associated exclusive common elements within the building were measured, unit areas were calculated and the set of 15 drawing sheets comprising the condominium plan was prepared for registration in the Land Titles Office. Work concluded with the certification that the final lot grading conformed to the design.
