The City of London had a vision to transform Dundas Street in downtown London, ON, into Dundas Place, a key public space and cultural hub that will encourage residential intensification in the core, showcase the built heritage of the area and shape downtown London for decades to come. The City of London is faced with the challenge of accommodating significant growth in high density development that is anticipated adjacent to Dundas Place, while protecting the street’s rich history, character and heritage. Being retained as the prime consultant, Dillon partnered with Gehl in the Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to provide the urban design, landscape architecture, placemaking, EA planning, consultation, and engineering expertise to turn Dundas Street into a flexible environment that is shared by pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.Read More

The South Halton Water and Wastewater Master Plan identified the need for a trunk sanitary sewer that could convey existing and future flows to the Mid-Halton Sewage Treatment Plant in Oakville. The existing sewage pump station and forcemain conveying sewage from Milton was at its maximum capacity. The Boyne Trunk Sewer was commissioned to replace the existing system. In 2008, Halton retained Dillon to complete the environmental assessment (EA) and subsequent design and construction phases for the large diameter (up to 2400 mm) gravity sewer. Read More
The transitway is a high-speed roadway for buses, physically separated from the regular street system, allowing buses to operate at speeds up to 80kph, free of any other traffic to provide fast, reliable service.Dillon acted as project lead, providing expertise in systems design, traffic operations, foundation design, structural design, running way and roadway design, signaling and transit priority measures, station design, construction planning, construction administration, rapid transit service planning, system implementation.
