Municipal Infrastructure

We view our role on development projects as a proactive one, to ensure that each work plan is expedited and our clients' needs are perceived as priorities. This philosophy combined with a commitment to open interaction with our clients is unique and has consistently allowed GREENLAND® to achieve methodical, practical, yet often innovative approaches to problem solving, resulting in viable, cost-effective results. We offer a breadth of experience on subdivision designs (grading, servicing and storm water management); site remediation and planning; water and wastewater infrastructure; project management; public consultation; and, construction administration.

As a result of our extensive master servicing plan and environmental assessment experience with water supply, wastewater treatment and stormwater management projects, GREENLAND® developed an adaptable “Pay for Performance and Life-Cycle Cost Public-Private Partnership (PPP)” business model. The model has been used to-date for municipality and First Nation projects. This ecosystem-based approach is now being used for community infrastructure projects involving new GREENLAND® joint ventures. This PPP model can address watershed-wide cumulative impacts and climate change concerns, and including landmark environmental protection requirements from the November 2015 passing (Royal Assent) of Ontario’s Bill 66 (An Act to Protect and Restore the Great Lakes - St. Lawrence River Basin).

Our municipal infrastructure team uses proprietary decision support systems and provides these consulting services:

Drinking Water

  • Source Water Protection, Master Servicing and Environmental Assessment Plans;
  • Water Treatment Plant Studies and Design;
  • Water Pumping Station and Distribution Studies and Design; and,
  • Construction Management and On-going Operational Support.

Wastewater

  • Process Support, Evaluation, Master Servicing and Environmental Assessment Plans;
  • Wastewater Collection, Pumping Station and Wastewater Equalization Studies and Designs;
  • Wastewater Treatment Plant and Stormwater Management Facility Studies and Designs;
  • Biosolids and Landfill Leachate Management Studies and Designs; and,
  • Construction Management and On-going Operational Support.


As each project requires a tailor-made approach, GREENLAND® knows the necessary planning, engineering and consultation tasks. Our team driven solutions serve as ‘blueprints’ for sustainable development.

We have developed many defendable infrastructure designs for urban land growth areas. These solutions have also included rural and recreational aesthetics, as well as economic opportunities afforded by the new development and preservation of ecosystems for the long-term health and benefit of all residents and stakeholders.

Our project approach identifies solutions that serve individual developments and those for the wider community. This provides the basis for effective staging and implementation of provisions for financing (such as our PPP model).

Client Testimonials

Walton Development and Management

The Walton Group of Companies is a multinational real estate investment and development firm concentrating on the research, acquisition, administration, planning and development of strategically located land in major North American growth corridors. With nearly 90,000 acres of land under administration including 22 development projects, Walton is one of North America’s premier land asset managers.

Walton Development and Management L.P. (“Walton”) has retained Greenland International Consulting Ltd. (“Greenland”) to assist with our municipal infrastructure planning and engineering design for several new communities in the County of Simcoe, Ontario including environmental assessments and water resource analysis. Greenland is highly regarded in the industry for their professional approach to the environmental aspects of these projects and state-of-the-art decision support tools (such as CANWETTM) to address climate change adaptation, cumulative watershed impact, and adaptive management such as post-construction performance monitoring. Greenland’s business model is unique and has provided Walton with value-added deliverables through the use of best available science and solution-based methodology. This includes forming a landmark public/private sector phosphorous reduction program to protect a sensitive fishery habitat system within headwaters of the Nottawasaga River Basin for one of Walton’s projects in Simcoe County. Greenland’s CANWETTM model and other in-house stormwater management and climate change impact assessment tools were instrumental for Walton to establish long-term partnerships in this community, including the local municipality, Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority and other key stakeholders.

County of Simcoe

The County of Simcoe is the upper tier government and planning authority for most of the South Georgian Bay – Lake Simcoe Source Water Protection Region. The County, in partnership with its member municipalities, other levels of government, floodplain management agencies and two (2) conservation authorities, also provides leadership through policy, and actively in the restoration and protection of the environmental health and quality of these watersheds. As you know, in order to comply with, and be environmentally proactive with respect to the Province of Ontario’s “Places to Grow” legislation, the County of Simcoe utilized innovative decision support tools such as Greenland’s CANWET™ model. In 2012, CANWET™ was also used by the County to prepare a “Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Visioning Strategy”. To this day, the information in the Strategy’s final report is used by local municipalities, development interests and other stakeholders as a background reference to help identify sustainable development solutions.
 
This letter confirms the County of Simcoe's commitment of support which includes initially facilitating the introduction of this landmark international collaboration with all 16 local municipalities, other governments (small and large) and other agencies that partner now with the County of Simcoe on land use planning; infrastructure renewal; and flooding risk/damage reduction initiatives.
 
As always, I look forward to our continued working relationship with you and your colleagues and the significant benefits these efforts will have for our residents and environment. The County of Simcoe appreciates your efforts towards developing information based decision making tools and we are confident that this project will prove beneficial in our collaborative goal to improve watershed health for all County residents.
