Collaboration with Vector Engineering Services, Pottinger Gaherty Environmental Consultants

For the wetland project, Our Designs Inc. is working with Vector Engineering to design 3 ponds with various depths and aquatic shelves. The principal has analyzed plant material and root systems, planting heights, water velocities and brings together various sciences and plant responses into the design. Our Designs prepared landscape plans, sections, details, quantity take off calculations and is working closely with the Biologists and Arborists from Pottinger Gaherty and the Civil Engineers with Vector Engineering Services.  The design of the wetland involved taking an invasive species inventory and preparing a mapping of the ESA, dividing it into 12 habitat zones.  The plant list includes aquatics and the selection of B.C. Native shrubs, conifers and deciduous trees.  The plants where selected to provide shade as quickly as possible to further irradicate the shade intolerant Himalayan Blackberry on the site.

The Commerical site next to the wetland was also dressed with B.C. Native shrubs and trees.    The water courses on 3 sides of the project provide fish and wildlife habitats.
