Civil and structural engineers for a new seawall that has been constructed along False Creek in Vancouver were Hay & Company Consultants, a division of EBA.
The new Southeast False Creek Seawall was opened at the end of May, following more than two years of construction. The project includes a new waterfront path about 600 metres along the foreshore, with two bridges and 10 viewing platforms, new lighting, benches, 200 trees and other landscape features. One of the bridges is a 40-metre long steel truss bridge over the inlet, and the other is an eight-metre clear span over the Hinge Park wetland.
The path is one of the final pieces of a 22-kilometre seaside pathway system along Vancouver’s inner waterfront, stretching from Coal Harbour to Kitsilano.
Other consultants on the southeast seawall project were Stantec (electrical), ECL Envirowest, Golder Associates and SNC-Lavalin (environmental), Levelton (geotechnical) and PWL Partnership (landscape).
