BC Transit Victoria handyDART Facility

BC Transit

BC Transit is building a new handyDart facility at 2401 Burnside Road in View Royal. Aqua-Tex is supporting the BC Transit design team with ecological advice to build a new stream channel on site and to protect the valuable habitat in neighbouring Craigflower Creek. We are also acting as senior environmental monitors.

  • We design and build projects that are efficient, effective and affordable both for the owner and for the community. Smart development can provide both economic and ecological benefits and can enhance the communities in which we live and work. Our solid understanding of the science of freshwater ecology ensures that our projects go beyond looking green, and function properly in both the short and long-term. We believe in an integrated team approach to sustainable planning and design.
