Stadium Neighborhood Underground Parkade and Water Storage : Final Design Report Buskas, Paulina; Dunlop, Julia; Luo, Daniel; Prahalad, Wesley; Rintoul, Steven; Subagio, Luthfi


Shearwater designs has been retained by UBC Campus and Community Planning to design an integrated stormwater and parkade structure. The structure will improve stormwater detention infrastructure, handle changing land uses due to the proposed Stadium Neighborhood development, and provide parking for the new Thunderbird Stadium. The project aims to integrate sustainable design with UBC athletics to showcase UBC’s commitment to sustainability. This report and its proposed design emulate UBC’s objectives as stated in the UBC Integrated Stormwater Management Plan [1]. The project is located northeast of the intersection of Southwest Marine Drive and West 16th Avenue. The design features a 3500 m³ underground water detention vault that feeds an infiltration trench and adjacent bioswales for overflow. A three level parkade will be constructed on top of the detention vault, with entry on West 16th Avenue. A Green roof and rain gardens are incorporated into the parkade exterior. The current estimated cost of this project will be $12 million with an annual maintenance cost of $32,000. The project’s latest construction start date and earliest construction finish date are May 1st 2019, and December 28th 2019, respectively.
