Construction Management FAQs
How does the City grant construction and street occupancy permits?
Once Council approves a development application, the construction process can begin right away. Before work begins, the City’s project team, which includes staff from engineering, transportation, building services, among others, have a pre-construction meeting with the project owners. At the pre-construction meeting, the City is provided with the construction schedule, traffic management plan, and communication notifications for residents and businesses. The City team will confirm the traffic and construction management expectations with the project owner’s team.
Why are there so many concurrent projects in this neighbourhood?
New Westminster is one of the oldest cities in the province and one of the fast growing communities. This results in yearly infrastructure upgrade improvements and land development projects. Council and staff do not control when land development projects are submitted to the City for approval and move into the active construction phase. As a result, they do not control when a project starts.
What is the Good Neighbour Protocol?
City staff work closely with the project owners and construction management companies to ensure they adhere to the Good Neighbour Protocol. The Good Neighbour Protocol is a set of guidelines developed to minimize the impact of construction projects on residents and businesses. Guidelines include: communicating with impacted neighbours; obtaining necessary permits; respecting construction hours of work; respecting the environment; keeping the site, roadways, and sidewalks safe for all users.
Who is notified when construction activity is taking place?
It is the responsibility of the project owner to notify residents and business in the immediate vicinity of the construction project. The timing and distribution area of the notification(s) is dependent on the size, duration, and level of impact of the construction activities.
