City Design and Construction Standards
Development of industrial land within Edmonton may require construction of infrastructure such as roads, sewers, and water distribution systems. The City of Edmonton has created design and construction standards to ensure all infrastructure is constructed to a consistent standard.
The construction specifications apply to new developments designed by consultants and constructed by contractors employed by private owners, as well as infrastructure development and rehabilitation projects designed and constructed by the City using its own consultants or contractors.
The Design and Construction Standards consists of 8 volumes covering the following areas:
- General Provisions for Developers
- Roadway Standards
- Drainage Standards
- Water Standards
- Landscaping Standards
- Street Lighting Standards
- Power Distribution Standards
- Pavement Marking Standards
The Design Chapters should not be considered as rigid requirements. The City is receptive to change, in cases where variations will achieve a better technical or economical solution.
