Design Services for Nicomekl Riverfront Park Hadden Mill & Oxbow zones


Request for Expressions of Interest and Statements of Qualifications


The City of Surrey (the “City”) is seeking an integrated multidisciplinary team to undertake the preparation of park design details consistent with the Concept and Management Plans approved for the park and to act as a liaison with consultants working on other related Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund (DMAF) projects.

 General Project Information

The Nicomekl River is one of three significant fish bearing river systems in Surrey.  Beginning in Langley, it runs roughly west, primarily through farmland, emptying into Boundary Bay.  For the majority of the river, it is bounded on the north side by farmland (Agricultural Land Reserve) and on the south side by private property.  The City is in the process of acquiring the last few pieces of parkland to create the Nicomekl Riverfront Park.  This new 3km linear park will extend along the south side of the Nicomekl river from Elgin Rd to 40th Ave and connect to the larger green network.

Project Objectives / Desired Outcomes

The City is seeking pre-qualification submissions from interested respondents to provide multidisciplinary services, with a Landscape Architectural lead/prime consultant, for the detail design of the Nicomekl Riverfront Park Hadden Mill and Oxbow zones.

Working with the Nicomekl Riverfront Park Management Plan and its Concept Plans, Park Objectives, Design Initiatives, Management Strategies and Companion Documents, the selected consulting team will prepare a refined concept plan, detailed design drawings and provide construction administration services for the Hadden Mill and Oxbow zones.  The selected consulting team will also prepare an overall Naming and Wayfinding strategy for the length of the park.

Scope of Work
