Located within the heart of Symons Valley, Sage Hill Quarter sits on a seventeen-acre site with terrain that drops approximately 60 feet from one end of the site to the other. Our team used slope adaptive techniques to minimize the impact on the environmental terrain. Streets, buildings and parkades are embedded into the existing topography and retain steep conditions of the slope.
Sensitivity to the site condition has greatly reduced the amount of soil cut, fill and concrete retaining wall resulting in a large reduction of materials, waste and overall environmental disturbance. This is complemented by grading which minimizes water run-off and reduces the infiltration of pollutants. The catchment pond was strategically located to help manage stormwater, and at the same time, become a community feature for neighbourhood.
