AIRDRIE UTILITY MASTER PLAN
Location: Airdrie, AB
Project Type: Municipal Infrastructure
About This Project
With an annual growth rate exceeding 5 per cent for most of the past decade, Airdrie is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Canada. In 2014, Airdrie had a population of 54,891 within the pre-annexation area of approximately 3,350 hectares; by 2017 it had grown to nearly 65,000 people. With the additional land mass, the City had foreseen its population reaching 110,000 by 2040 and planned for residential and non-residential developable lands targeting a strategic land use split of 75 per cent and 25 per cent, respectively – to ensure municipal fiscal sustainability
ISL took an integrated approach to critical infrastructure master planning, adopting a number of industry best practices in asset management, community and stakeholder engagement, risk assessment, option evaluation/costing, geospatial analysis and modelling. This enabled ISL to deliver a collaborative, holistic, resilient and sustainable plan that fulfils the City’s vision, while also achieving an effective balance between the level of service, available funding/cost and the City’s risk tolerance.
