GOOSEBAY TOWN CENTRE DEVELOPMENT
Ekistics was retained by a private developer to create a master plan for a new village centre for Happy Valley/Goosebay. The plan calls for 800 units (multi’s, single family, townhouse and semi’s) and 500,000 sq.ft. commercial core uses that range from hotel, restaurants, shopping areas and financial district. The plan
includes a variety of residential unit types, a new junior high school, a large village square, several neighbourhood parks, a lifestyle seniors complex and a new commercial core as short term priority projects. Ekistics' Engineering division is overseeing design and construction of the first phase.
DARTMOUTH SPORTSPLEX SITE PLAN
Ekistics was part of a multi-disciplinary team undertaking a schematic redesign of the Dartmouth Sportsplex. An expansive addition to the building footprint required an innovative approach to the site planning, balancing the needs of vehicles accessing both the Sportsplex and the adjacent transit terminal with pedestrian traffic. The Ekistics site plan balanced parking stall quantity with green space and pedestrian refuge, creating a parking lot that is easy to navigate a car through, and safe and pleasurable to walk across. A new drop-off zone eases traffic congestion during peak hours, and a new entrance plaza welcomes visitors to this reconceptualized space.

DEBERT GATEWAY ROUNDABOUT
Ekistics was retained by the Municipality of Colchester to develop a green gateway strategy for Debert. The proposed development of a new and much needed service centre at the Highway 104 / Debert interchange
provides the impetus to redefine the existing MacElmon Road corridor, creating a vibrant Village gateway from the 104 entrance and the potential for highway commercial uses like hotels, gas bars, restaurants and other
highway service uses.

Civil engineering intersects with urban design and considers the whole system both above and below ground. Much of municipal engineering design encompasses above ground carriageways and a network of underground infrastructure that supports our urban living environment. Underground services such as water, wastewater and storm sewer go unseen and virtually unnoticed until they are poorly functioning or obsolete. Many towns and villages face the challenge to renew outdated architecture and crumbling underground infrastructure on a finite budget. A holistic municipal engineering approach combines urban renewal with underground infrastructure rejuvenation. This integrates practical solutions with innovative trends to create aesthetically appealing settings that function.
