Lessons Learned - Using the Integrated Design Process to Carry-out a Major Planning Study for the Lions Gate Secondary Wastewater Treatment Plant Project Definition Report

Description:Lessons learned - Using the integrated design process to carry-out a major planning study for the Lions Gate secondary wastewater treatment plant project definition report. Presenter: Richard Bitcon, M.Eng., P.Eng., MBA, AECOM. Additional Contributors: Paul Dufault, P.Eng., Metro Vancouver; Joyce Chang, P.Eng., CH2M HILL Metro Vancouver will upgrade its existing primary treatment plant on the North Shore to secondary treatment by the end of 2020 to meet the new federal Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulation (WSER). The project definition phase for the new Lions Gate Secondary Wastewater Treatment Plant (LGSWWTP) was carried out using a formal Integrated Design Process (IDP) over a period of almost two years. The final solution (Indicative Design), including the new wastewater treatment facility and supporting ancillary infrastructure, such as influent and effluent conveyance and deconstructing the existing primary plant, has an estimated CAPEX of $700M representing one of the largest wastewater infrastructure projects in Canada. This presentation will provide an overview of the IDP framework, the stakeholders involved, the structured decision-making (SDM) process developed by the design team to build and evaluate concepts and technologies and lessons learned by the design team that may be applied to future municipal infrastructure projects that will be implemented using a formal IDP and/or similar SDM framework. The discussion will include feedback from the public and other external stakeholders and internal stakeholders within Metro Vancouver.
