Design and Construction
Final design of the North Shore Wastewater Treatment Plant
is underway. In April 2017, Metro Vancouver awarded the Design-Build-Finance contract for the new centre to ADAPT Consortium, who are responsible for final design and construction.
Indicative Design (complete)
The Project Definition phase culminated with a Project Definition Report which defines the scope of the project, establishes the project budget, and includes the Indicative Design. Project specifications will be developed, based on this report, for the three Design-Build-Finance teams that will be selected to prepare bids to design and construct the new plant.
The Project Definition Report is available at the bottom of this page.
Integrative Design Process (complete)
A collaborative Integrative Design process was used to build consensus on the plant design. Metro Vancouver engaged residents, businesses, interest groups, member municipalities and First Nations to provide input that helped shape the Indicative Design.
Ninety-five meetings took place between February 2012 and October 2013. Potential community impacts and issues were discussed including odour control, visual aesthetics, truck traffic, noise, resiliency to sea-level rise and changing regulations, and costs to taxpayers. Records of these meetings can be found on the Community Input pages.
