Regional Municipality of York - Odour Control Facility Modifications
METTKO was awarded the contract for the Regional Municipality of York York-Durham Sewer System Odour Control Facility Modifications and Pressure Monitoring Stations. This project includes the construction of a new HDPE pipe which spans across two sites and ties in to the new Biofilter building.
The existing Odour Control Facility building is to be renovated and modified to accommodate the new generator and mechanical equipment for the HDPE pipe and system upgrades. The intent of the project is to provide newer more efficient equipment which will have better control over the odour releases from the sanitary trunk which runs through the site.
METTKO is also responsible for the construction of five (5) remote pressure monitoring stations. These remote stations are to be integrated using the SCADA system into the Odour Control Facility.
The project includes two (2) sites which are separated by the Scarborough-Pickering Townline. The west site is in York Region while the east site is in Durham Region. There is also a large existing sanitary truck spanning the length of both sites for which the work must be carefully coordinated around.
This Project is scheduled to be completed November 2013 .
METTKO was awarded the contract for the Orchard Heights Booster Pumping Station upgrades including the building renovation, new turbine pumps, new Genset, and SCADA system. The focus of the project will be to replace the existing pumps with newer efficient units while maintaining daily operation throughout construction.
The new station will be integrated with SCADA systems and managed by the Region’s existing SCADA infrastructure for updated operational requirements.
Construction will occur in multiple phases and requires the installation and commissioning of new concrete pressure pipe yard piping. This will permit the removal of existing yard piping, and the construction of the north portion booster station.
The new north portion will be commissioned, including the installation of new vertical turbine pumps, and temporary SCADA system. The existing south portion can then be demolished, and reconstructed with new vertical turbine pumps, generator, Motor Control Centre and phase in new SCADA system for entire facility.
With successful installation and commissioning of all the new pumps, the High Density Directional Boring piping can then be connected to the existing water distribution system.
This project is scheduled to be complete in June 2014.
METTKO was recently rewarded the contract for the new Queensville West Sewage Pumping Station located in the Town of East Gwillimbury.

The Station will feature two 105kW pumps with provisions for two future pumps.
The scope of work includes the construction of a reinforced concrete pumping station/control building, inlet sewers and forcemains, emergency overflow, a new access road along with the installation of new power service complete with 500kVA transformer and metering cabinet, pumping units, drainage, ventilation and SCADA integration.
This project is scheduled to be completed in July 2014.
The Town of Newmarket retained the Project Management Services of METTKO in September 2012.
In November 2008, the Town of Newmarket submitted an application for the renovation and expansion of the Old Town Hall. The main themes of the successful application were to make the building accessible and to utilize the building as an Arts and Culture Centre. On February 12, 2009 the Federal Government announced approval of the application, with funding consisting of equal investments from the Federal and Provincial governments.
Following approval of the Building Canada Fund (BCF) grant in early 2009, the Town conducted an RFP and retained the services of a heritage architect to begin the design process.
The building has been used for various purposes over the years, including a town market, municipal offices and police station including a jail and courthouse. The renovation project will include the incorporation of existing historical materials such as the jail cell steel partitions and salvaged beams.
Construction consists of the renovation of the existing 9000ft2 building, constructed in 1890, and a 5600ft2 addition. Community programming will consist of Arts and Cultural programs, meeting rooms, gallery display space, large public and private functions.
This project is scheduled to be completed in June 2014.
