General Description of Requirement
Located at the northeast side of the area commonly referred to as “False Creek”, Northeast False Creek (“NEFC”) is one of the largest undeveloped areas in Vancouver’s downtown peninsula. At present, False Creek is a tidal inlet vulnerable to king tides and storm surges. In the future, static water levels are projected to increase due to sea level rise and may contribute to increase flooding in the surrounding floodplain.
The existing sea wall along the False Creek shoreline was designed as a retaining structure to separate the land from the sea. It was not specifically designed for coastal flood protection nor was it designed for a specific level of service for flood management. Currently, the public space atop and near the sea wall is enjoyed as recreational areas for cycling, walking and other activities. The future shoreline flood protection strategy is to facilitate the continued public access to the waterfront and continued combined use of the structure.
Development plans for NEFC include large urban and park spaces, both focussed on the waterfront. With this variation in land uses and public space, the NEFC shoreline presents an exciting opportunity for the development of new shoreline flood protection infrastructure approaches for the City of Vancouver.
The City requires a range of innovative approaches to shoreline flood protection in the NEFC area. These approaches must reflect relevant performance criteria, the spirit of the Northeast False Creek Plan (“NEFC Plan” or “Plan”), and NEFC park planning principles. The purpose of this RFP is to procure services to develop new performance criteria for shoreline flood protection infrastructure for the NEFC shoreline.
