Hapa is collaborating with Hatch Mott MacDonald Engineering on the conceptual and detailed design of seven station plazas and several open space areas for Metro Vancouver’s new Evergreen Skytrain Line. Included in the work are seven plazas, spread across three rapidly growing Lower Mainland municipalities (Burnaby, Port Moody and Coquitlam). Each plaza design responds to the urban imperatives of its site as well as to the functional needs of Skytrain loading, unloading, operation and maintenance. Multimodal transportation factors, creating comfortable waiting and gathering space, and public art placement are among the design considerations. In addition to the plazas, Hapa is designing open space improvements adjacent to the new rapid transit line to soften its effect on existing neighbourhoods. Throughout conceptual and detailed design, Hapa is either leading or participating in discussions on the public realm with the consultant team, client, Translink, the three municipalities and various stakeholder groups.
