In operationÂ since 1959, our company employs approximately 50 professional land surveyors, engineers, support technicians and administration staff who work as a team to complete every aspect of site planning and preparation in-house – saving clients’ time and money.
Our project experience is diverse, with areas served focused on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, and extending to communities throughout BC.
Project: A 127-lot waterfront development that includes luxury homes, a marina, golf course and destination resort.
Challenges: The site required multiple levels of planning involving the Ministry of Transportation, Regional District and local government. JEA helped mitigate the siteâ€™s environmentally sensitive areas, sewage disposal challenges, and community water issues that included an underwater crossing of the harbour.
Project: On-going comprehensive development of single-family strata, townhomes, commercial and apartments. Mixed uses including waterfront park and cycling routing/facilities.
Challenges: This former railyard required extensive collaboration with geotechnical engineers and architects to develop the site. JEA worked with the City on the design of the Galloping Goose Trail, part of the Trans Canada Trail, to ensure all stakeholdersâ€™ needs were met. The first phase of townhouses was also completed, and work continues with phase six as JEA liaisons with numerous contractors and maintains the overall project database.
The Uptown Centre
Project: A 1.3-million-square-foot mixed-use village-style urban neighbourhood combining retail, office and residential components.
Challenges: On this large and busy site surveyors were faced with significant construction layout challenges and safety precautions while working on a complex set of building plans and liaising with multiple contractors. Three tower cranes ensured that the site was a constant beehive of efficient activity.
Subdivision at 10th and Douglas Streets
Project: Fully Serviced 35-Lot Subdivision
Challenges: This development underwent several ownership and contractor changes during the course of planning, design and construction. The site was surrounded on three sides by public roads that all required upgrading along with the underground infrastructure. JEA provided construction, design and consulting services with all immediate stakeholders so that the development could be completed
Project: 25-Lot Subdivision
Challenges: The site drains directly to the ocean via several watercourses, so the storm water management was critical in maintaining the pre-development flows. Significant natural topographic challenges required that the existing road be significantly regraded while permitting access by existing residents. Consultation with geotechnical engineers, septic disposal experts and environmental consultants were critical in the completion of this development.
