MGM proudly worked as part of the consulting team led by Kingsland+ Architects Inc. to provide civil engineering design and contract administration services for the Grand River Collegiate Institute Expansion located at 175 Indian Road in Kitchener, Ontario.

The expansion project consisted of a 27,000 m2, two-storey addition to provide a new student entrance, study commons, science wing, administration offices, washrooms, and other ancillary spaces. To accomodate the building expansion, the surrounding vehicle parking areas were reconstructed and expanded.

Throughout the application process, MGM navigated through the City of Kichener’s unique and challenging stormwater management design and analysis requirements which included meeting a strict stormwater balance target and using software modelling in analysing quantity controls and sewer capacity. Our project engineers successfully satisfied the stringent water balance criterion through a creative infiltration gallery strategy that enabled our client to avoid the City’s costly cash in lieu fees.

MGM successfully delivered a practical and efficient site engineering and stormwater management system supported by software analysis, which ensured the satisfaction of governing agencies. Our dedicated team effectively managed the application process and reviewed construction works to ensure timely approvals and conformance to the approved plans.
