West 69 Condominium Development
SCOPE Projects were retained in 2007 to review landscape architectural and engineering drawings for a feature pond system to be constructed as a central amenity in the courtyard of the West 69 condominium development in the West Springs subdivision, in west Calgary. After reviewing the plans, it was determined that water quality control issues were not being addressed sufficiently, and current technologies water feature designs were not being utilized.
The plan was then reworked to address the aforementioned issues, and was then resubmitted for approval by the Property Developer. After presentation of the revised design complete with costing, Scope Projects were retained to install the water feature as a turn-key feature of the development. The final installation is compromised of a 200’ of stream flowing through a multi-pond system from a central filtration source. It culminates in an 8 foot wide waterfall, which then tumbles dramatically down over 7 feet into a final pond. The water is then recirculated back up to the primary filtration source using computer controlled variable frequency 3-phase power pumps, which also brings a cost effective component to the operational aspect of the feature. The emergent plants in the patented marsh filter technology, gives the water filtration source a natural appearance, while supporting the aesthetics of the feature, and supplying varied habitat for wildlife.
Throughout the three sisters development in Canmore Alberta you will see a litany of projects with SCOPEs fingerprints on them. We have been retained on various condominium design packages which in many cases included full range construction drawings and a number of specialized residential packages with unique features that can only be created by the rugged terrain throughout the town.
In most cases we were also retained to construct projects both of our own design and others. With our specialized equipment and vast experience in tough working conditions we have created a handful of incredible projects throughout the valley. With an emphasis on natural rock work and detailed drainage designs these projects are great representation of our focus on quality built landscapes. Most notably the Timberline condominium which won the best commercial landscape construction project in Canmore 2009 and a private home that won an award for best residential water feature 2006.
Due to our reputation in water feature projects Mackenzie Meadows Golf club approached us to design and construct a memorial water feature along the 6th tee box. As luck would have it, the 2013 floods moved through the golf course creating incredible damage to everything in its path, which included damage to the water feature. In the summer of 2014 SCOPE came back in to recreate and rebuild the areas that were damaged.
The water feature includes a multi-tiered falls structure with a 50’ creek bed that flows into the existing 6th pond. An infiltration gallery was installed within the pond and VFD controlled pump is used to supply sufficient water to create the water falls that exist today. Due to proper construction techniques and the use of substantial rock features the heart of the structure remained intact during the floods and remarkably we were able to come in and make the feature shine after less than a week of cleanup efforts.
