Allied REIT is a major developer of commercial and residential space in the downtown Toronto area. In 2008, Allied began the approval process for the Queen Richmond Centre West located at 134 Peter Street in Toronto. The development encompassed an assembly of properties located on Peter Street and Richmond Street which included a new 13-storey office tower that straddled an existing heritage building to remain.
MGM Consulting Inc. was retained to provide the construction management, site servicing, grading and stormwater management designs in support of the Site Plan Approval application and to provide construction supervision during the servicing and grading component of the project.
The stormwater management design was completed to achieve the Wet Weather Flow Management objectives as established by the City of Toronto. As is typical with high density development in Toronto, the ability to meet the SWM objectives was difficult due to building coverage and limited location for surface retention. The water balance, quality and quantity requirements were met by employing a multi strategy design which included a green roof and internal grey water cistern.
