As we advance construction of our new Parkade and Central Utilities Building, we have begun a period of significant excavation from the project site. In line with our commitment to sustainability and construction waste diversion, we will take advantage of the valuable earthworks materials and we will be transporting them to an unused parcel of land south of the BCIT campus on Russ Baker Way (see map below).
While there are no current plans to develop this site, this is an opportunity to re-use and recycle valuable materials to prepare the land for potential future development. This waste diversion project is expected to prevent more than 215,000 cubic metres of soil from landfill this year alone.
We will notify the community of any future development plans for this parcel of land.
