Per requested by UBC SEEDS Sustainability Program, a redesign on the East Mall segment between Agronomy Road and W 16th Avenue is prompted to achieve two goals: 1) Address current traffic issues such as speeding, lack of safety for pedestrians and cyclists, insufficient supply of temporary parking, etc.; 2) Improve the surrounding area with betterment such as tie-in with the Thunderbird Stadium Neighborhood, weather protection at Agronomy Road, greenspace increment and etc. The final detailed design is developed based on the preliminary design, with new features added. The final report includes design key components, design criteria, construction and maintenance plan, detailed cost estimate, construction schedule as well as the IFC drawings package and construction specification. Different modelling softwares such as Excel, AutoCAD and Synchro were applied to visualize the design components and analyze the design outcome. An updated class-B cost estimate is conducted, with the total of 14 main tasks defined in the detailed stage broken down into 35 subtasks. The project is estimated to be $11,432,982 CAD. The estimated cost covers permitting fee, construction cost, direct operation cost and maintenance cost. Based on estimated project schedule, actual construction will start on May 1st, 2021, and will attain substantial completion by Aug 22nd, 2021.
