Associated Engineering has expanded our services over the years to include landscape architecture and urban planning and design. With the addition of landscape architecture and urban design expertise, we have provided clients with design services for parks, sports fields, greenways, trails, roadway boulevards, municipal, residential and commercial developments, and facilities.
Along with these services, we have honed our expertise in keeping our clients’ grass green. In our Lethbridge office, we have several noted specialists with experience in turf irrigation design. Our team of turf irrigation specialists includes Ben Leusink, Engineer-of-Record, who has completed the Principles of Irrigation Design with the Irrigation Association; Dean Maruyama, who is responsible for Quality Assurance and has over 40 years of experience in the irrigation design and construction industry; James Walshe, who has served as Resident inspector; and Kristi Stickel-Burke and Jacquelyn Jensen, both with experience in design and drafting.
In our Edmonton office, Tyson Buckley has experience completing designs for irrigation and Chris Parfitt has overseen construction of turf irrigation on projects. Ann Stephenson in our Victoria office has also designed and overseen construction of irrigation systems for sports fields.
In early 2019, Associated Engineering purchased software called Irrigation FX, which is an add-on to AutoCAD. Ben shares, “This program helps to create efficiencies during the irrigation design process and helps to develop a robust design.”
Over the past several years, our Lethbridge team has completed design and construction services for multiple parks and boulevards throughout the City of Lethbridge. The projects range between large 29 hectare parks with over 100 zones and 1,500 irrigation heads to smaller 1.2 hectare linear parks. The team has also completed drip irrigation systems for tree and shrub needs along major roadways throughout Lethbridge. Currently, the Regina office is working with the Lethbridge team to complete an irrigation design for the RCMP cemetery located in Regina.
