The Brady Road Resource Management Facility retained Nadi for a landscape plan that addressed the following concerns and issues regarding the Brady Landfill: 1. The desire for habitat creation with diversity planting. 2. Buffer to address surrounding neighbourhood concerns regarding odour, landfill litter control (windblown materials), sounds and unsightly views. 3. Provide a landscape strategy to address immediate concerns of the impacts of the landfill on newly developing neighbourhoods. And 4. Design a100+ year landscape master plan to be phased in as the City decommissions landfill sites.
As community engagement was integral to developing the master plan, we hosted a series of community workshops to receive public input. Also, we prepared presentations for various stakeholders, neighbourhood representatives, local RM’s and interested citizens to collect ideas, information and maintain public buy-in for the design. Our final master plan provided a long-term vision, a short-term landscape implementation plan along with sustainable visual and buffering typologies, incorporating trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants, which are native to Manitoba.
In addition to providing community engagement services and producing a master plan, we provided detail design and contract administration for the first phase of the sustainable vegetative buffer along the perimeter highway.
