Introduction to Municipal Engineering
Investing in reliable, durable infrastructure is vital to the growth and well-being of our communities. Our approach to municipal engineering focuses on responsible design and planning, with a significant portion of our efforts aimed at effective community engagement and concentrated stakeholder management. Whether rehabilitating, replacing, or optimizing existing infrastructure, our clients are looking to maximize their investment by supporting sustainable and resilient systems that will adapt to long-term growth.
Our linear infrastructure team boasts hundreds of years of combined experience in the management, design, and construction of water transmission, distribution, and wastewater collection systems. We provide high level strategic advice and technical expertise to ensure our clients’ projects meet or exceed current and future municipal servicing demand. The team’s portfolio includes engineering services at all project phases for large and small diameter watermains and feedermains, sewage forcemains, and sewers. We have designed hundreds of kilometers of new and replaced water and wastewater systems. Our team’s expertise includes preliminary and detailed design, trenchless technologies, permitting, utility coordination, hydrologic and hydraulic modelling, and the evaluation of sanitary and water servicing alternatives.
TMIG’s vertical infrastructure team is comprised of leading experts in the design, commissioning, and tendering of water and wastewater infrastructure systems, including water pumping stations, storage facilities, treatment plants, wells, and sewage pumping stations and treatment facilities. We engage operations staff (the end user) at all levels of project development to ensure a smooth transition to commissioning as well as ease of use. Through our key relationships with approval agencies and municipalities and inclusion of senior staff on all projects, TMIG delivers our clients timely, sound, and cost-effective solutions.
TMIG provides creative transportation solutions while improving the performance and longevity of all transportation systems within the communities they service. Our team offers the multi-disciplinary skills required to manage small to medium sized transportation planning and municipal engineering projects. TMIG strives to design sustainable, longterm solutions that fit with the needs and dynamics of the community and surrounding infrastructure, while minimizing the environmental impacts of the project. We pride ourselves on our longstanding relationships with municipal, regional, and provincial transportation personnel across the entire GTA. These strong relationships provide a solid footing for open and constructive exchange of ideas, ultimately contributing to creative, timely, and cost-effective solutions for today’s varied transportation engineering /planning challenges.
The TMIG team is dedicated to helping plan the evolution of our clients’ municipal infrastructure needs to accommodate planned growth. In addition to our technical contributions, our experts provide guidance and support throughout the planning process to explore ways to optimize current infrastructure, identify additional capacity opportunities, and support short- and long-term capital budgeting for water, wastewater, and stormwater core servicing. Our master planners are experts in their field. They deliver solutions that meet regulatory approval and expedite projects from design to implementation.
Revitalization offers economic value and brings new life and vitality to an established area, while retaining the cultural and historic significance of the development area. TMIG was part of the East Bayfront multi-disciplinary team, one of the biggest revitalization projects Toronto has seen. The project involved servicing the 22 ha site situated between Lakeshore Boulevard and Lake Ontario at Jarvis Street to Parliament Street. Through this revitalization, 7000 residential units and 1 million square feet of commercial space was designed, which brings employment opportunities to an estimated 8000 people.
