Gilmore Pump Station – Building Utilities in an Urban Environment

Description:On the surface of this project it was just an old pump station that required replacement to meet future flows. Through the presentation of this sewage pump station project we will demonstrate some of the new trends of constructing facilities that not only provide an engineered solution but also blend with the environment and include features to engage with the public. This will be provided in the context of other facilities to demonstrate the City of Burnaby advanced approach to construction of above ground infrastructure in public areas. The paper will describe some of the features specific to this project. It would also cover the benefits and the risks and additional costs that should be considered when going that route. The Gilmore sewage pump station is located in a dense, high traffic area right under a Sky Train station in the City of Burnaby.
