Jamie Creek – Slocan Valley
As-Built Surveys / Tenure Survey / Rights of Way
Located in the rugged and remote Bridge River Country, this run-of-river power project harnesses energy from Jamie Creek as it flows into the Downton Lake Reservoir. From the powerhouse, hydroelectric power is directed through overhead power lines approximately 17km to the LaJoie Dam BC Hydro Facility at the eastern end of the reservoir.
Bennett provided land surveying services for this project, including the initial transmission line layout and subsequent as-built surveys, as well as the preparation of legal surveys consisting of statutory rights of way and a long term tenure survey under the Land Act.
Sea 2 Sky Gondola – Squamish
LiDAR UTM Surveying
Located on the beautiful Sea to Sky Highway, this ground-breaking project has been a catalyst for change in the community of Squamish. Bennett Land Surveying has provided the surveying services to derive the LiDAR UTM coordinates of the project, the creation of a statutory right of way through the Stawamus Chief Provincial Park, and the layout of the gondola towers. The gondola towers are positioned on extremely steep and rocky terrain that covers approximately 2 kilometers horizontally and 1 kilometer of vertical gain. We used a combination of conventional style surveying and GPS for this project.
The Summit Lodge had very uneven and rocky terrain and required exact layout on the ground as the building was mostly prefabricated and building components were dropped into place with cranes, making the layout precision very important.
