Project Description

Design and Construction Oversight

Austin Engineering completed the design and construction oversight for the Idlewild Dam located in Cranbrook, B.C. The project was part of a larger project involving the Idlewild park upgrade.

Utilizing their in-house hydraulic modelling lab and 3D printing technology, Austin Engineering designed and tested models of the dam. This allowed for spillway optimization prior to construction, which drastically reduced the quantity of concrete required for the job and
resulting in significant cost savings and mitigation of environmental impacts.
