Brownfield Site Development


Client: City of Orillia
Date: 2015 - Present

As per the Certificate of Property Use (CPU) and the Risk Management Measures, Cambium was retained by the City of Orillia to complete an annual assessment on and off site groundwater, surface water and sediment sampling, soil vapour sampling, in addition to an ecological assessment of plants, the aquatic community, and wildlife. The ecological assessment assisted the City in developing the Site Plan for the Recreation Centre, to adequately protect natural features.

Once approved for development, the City moved forward to prepare the site as home for their future Recreation Centre. Cambium conducted geotechnical investigations and continues to work on the project as an environmental consultant for the use and management of this brownfield site.

The Orillia Recreation Centre project is moving forward and is currently at the Construction and Tendering Documentation stage. http://orillia.ca/en/insidecityhall/recreationfacilitysites.asp
