Cleveland Dam
Vancouver, BC

CWA was engaged by Metro Vancouver as the prime consultant for the Cleveland Dam Project in North Vancouver. The project consists of the design and installation of a new elevator for personnel safety access to the underground galleries in an existing 200 ft airshaft. The new elevator will be capable of carrying four people, an injured worker and stretcher, and a specified payload transportation of tools and equipment.

The project scope encompases the design of the service building, which includes structural, mechanical and electrical engineering services; the verification of air flow; water and ice build-up in the airshaft; and a plan for future power generation equipment and installation within the airshaft. Throughout the project, CWA acted as the owner’s engineer for the purchase of the elevator.
