Beachview Rise is a 20 lot subdivision located in the up-and-coming Port Renfrew on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Karl Ablack from Port Renfrew Management Inc. hired MSR Solutions to provide engineering design assistance for the development. The forest development is uphill from the Port San Juan. Some homes have a spectacular view of the ocean. Others have a relaxing view of a creek and the forest on the backside of the development. The fully serviced lots will each be bare ¼ acre single family lots. Buyers are able to build their dream home on their chosen property.

MSR Solutions coordinated with another consulting firm for the design of the civil works for each lot. We designed the lift station and wastewater treatment system with the intention of connecting other surrounding communities. This will create a large community wastewater treatment system in the future. Due to the future plan of a larger scale development, the current water reservoir upgrade was created as a joint project. The current reservoir is not large enough to support the future development as well as the town of Port Renfrew.  MSR Solutions coordinated with the Capital Regional District and Port Renfrew Management for upgrade of the water reservoir and the well located outside of town.

The MSR staff members on this project were: Mike Seymour (lead engineer), Arash Kanani (project engineer), and Matt Gable (drafting support).

MSR Solutions heard the client’s ideas for their future intentions for the system and provided a design to suit the large future community system.

We have worked with MSR Solutions on this project since 2016 with respect to sewer permitting with Sewerage System Regulations through the Ministry of Health. We have since taken a different approach and are now going through Municipal Waste Water Regulations through the Ministry of Environment. MSR Solutions helped us through the regulatory process with VIHA approval and continue to work with us on the MOE approval.
