Metro Vancouver has awarded ADAPT Consortium a C$525 million ($394 million) contract (excluding taxes) to design and construct a new LEED Gold sewage treatment plant on the North Shore. The total estimated cost of the project is C$700 million ($526 million).
ADAPT Consortium is made up of four companies: Acciona Infrastructure, Dialog Design, Amec Foster Wheeler and Tetra Tech.
The treatment system will employ best practices for wastewater treatment and resource recovery, and reduce the plant’s carbon footprint. The new Lions Gate Secondary Wastewater Treatment Plant will be enclosed — reducing unpleasant odors — and will feature a public plaza as well as education and community meeting spaces. It will be built on a 3.5-hectare site in the District of North Vancouver.
The project is expected to be completed in December 2020. The existing wastewater treatment plant will be decommissioned beginning in 2021 and the land, which is leased, will be turned over to the Squamish Nation.
