Appendix ‘A’: Hoarding Plan and Traffic Management – During Construction

1. Introduction

This Construction Management Plan has been written to help uniformly direct and control activities during the construction of 215 Church Street, Toronto, located at the South East corner of Dundas Street East and Church Street. This program was designed to cover most issues involved in a large construction project. The size, scope and technical complexity of the trade work will determine the relevant procedures in the program to be utilized. All trades will not necessarily require the use of every form listed in this program. Mitigation measures will be actioned through a Construction Management Plan and communicated through a Community Communication Program.
The Project site is bordered by the following streets as seen in Figure 1:
    •   North Side: Dundas Street East
    •   East Side:  Dalhousie Street
    •   West Side:  Church Street
Upon completion, the mix-use development will consist of: a fifty-two (52) storey tower, six-hundred two (602) unit residential condominium, ground floor retail units, and five levels of underground parking with space for one-hundred forty-two (142) parking spots and five-hundred fifty-nine (631) long-term bicycle parking spaces.
Vehicular access to the development will be from Dalhousie Street.

2. Major Work Construction Plans

2.1 Construction Logistics

The Construction Management Plan as illustrated in Appendix ‘A’ has been designed to have minimal impact on north-facing Dundas Street and west-facing Church Street. To minimize the duration of the work and its impact on the local community the project proposes to remove construction related traffic and queuing from immediate local streets by staging work internally via a lane occupancy permit and the placement of cranes, hoisting, and pumping equipment within the site footprint.
In doing so, the construction schedule applies the following methodology to accelerate construction and minimize the duration of work and its impact on the community:
    •   Single sourcing abatement, demolition, shoring and excavation scope of work. In this scenario major heavy equipment are shared in stages to minimize floats in and out of the site, therefore reducing traffic congestion and minimizing queuing zones to stage construction vehicles
    •   One tower crane will be erected to service the proposed buildings at this development. This crane is anticipated to be installed Fall 2019. Tower crane; concrete pumps; and material hoists have been planned to be staged within the site footprint.
    •   Principle site access will be via a lane occupancy permit off Dalhousie Street and lay-down, material storage, trailer and temporary power will be through the recently acquired properties at 211 and 213 Church Street located immediately to the South of this project upon the approval of a demolition permit.

2.2 Excavation Work Plan

Prior to the start of bulk excavation, street cleanliness will be controlled; along with catch basin protection and daily-street cleaning of the right of way where required. Project flag personnel will be stationed on Dalhousie Street to control construction vehicle traffic in and out of the site.
A dewatering plan will be applied at this stage to control water accumulation from ground, rain and snow; and the water tank platform will be located within the site, along Dundas Street East. The water tank will be equipped with a flow meter and discharge port to the combined sewer on Dalhousie Street as per City of Toronto Water regulations and a permitted Short-Term Discharge Agreement.
Bulk excavation will utilize hydraulic excavators which are equipped with bucket attachments. Disposal trucks will access the site from Dalhousie Street and queue internally prior to being loaded. Upon loading, mud will be cleaned from trucks where required prior to exiting the site on to Dalhousie Street. To complete the bulk excavation, a long-reach excavator will be positioned at the top of the shoring wall.

2.3 Formwork and Concrete Work Plan

As excavation reaches the structural rough grade, one tower crane will be installed for the structural phase of this Project. In addition to structural concrete work, the tower crane will hoist and place major mechanical and electrical equipment at the penthouse level such as generators, boilers, chillers, make-up air units and building maintenance unit (BMU).
The tower crane is anticipated to be erected Fall 2019. Tower crane pick-up points and hoist loading zones occur off Dalhousie Street via an internal lay-by zone and an internal compound to be located at the proposed future demolition of 211 and 213 Church Street.
All concrete ready-mix trucks will be equipped with an environmental wash-out system, water hose, and discharge hose to a self-contained wash-out operation to mitigate any concrete spillage onto the municipal streets.
The structural phase will be comprised of concrete and rebar for the building structure and window-wall installation for the exterior building envelope. All deliveries to the crane pick-up point areas will be scheduled through the Construction Manager or Site Superintendent and traffic will be managed by the site flag personnel.

3. Construction Management Plan

The purpose of this Construction Management Plan is to establish uniform policies and procedures that will be used by the construction management team to implement a separation of use and traffic management to construct at 215 Church Street, Toronto. The Construction Manager is responsible for implementing the plan and issuing communication updates as appropriate.
This program is not intended to be a step-by-step procedure for each activity. It is, instead, a program that outlines general activities, procedures, and requirements for trade work throughout the construction phase of the Project. Construction operations typically raise community concerns in areas of: site maintenance; noise; public safety; traffic access and construction activity communication. Mitigation measures will be actioned through the attached proposed Construction Management Plan and communicated through a Community Communication Strategy. Mitigation strategies include but are not limited to:

3.1 Public Safety – Separation of use, temporary fencing and plywood hoarding

Public safety will be implemented through the separation of construction activities between public right of ways and construction activities in three stages.
    •   Stage one: This will involve temporary chain link fence comes with screen to allow for internal shoring drilling as the installation of a permanent plywood hoarding will impede heavy equipment at the perimeter. In addition to the temporary fence, rolling scaffold overhead protection will be used on the sidewalks with pedestrian control personnel stationed at the rolling scaffolding when required.
Start: October 2018     End: April 2019
    •   Stage two: Upon shoring drilling completion and prior to bulk excavation start the temporary chain link fence will be replaced with plywood hoarding and overhead protection at the perimeter of the site. The estimated date for delivery of public art on hoarding will take place post hoarding and overhead protection completion and as approved by local Councillor.
Start: May 2019         End: November 2022
    •   Stage three: Upon completion of the all exterior assemblies and prior to streetscape construction the plywood hoarding will be removed, and a temporary fence provided.
Start: December 2022        End: May 2023
Two-lane traffic will be maintained on Dundas Street and Church Street. One-lane one-way traffic will be maintained on Dalhousie.

3.2 Site Maintenance – Dust, Mud and Right of Way Maintenance

The Construction Manager will implement a dust control program to minimize the effects of construction activities on air quality.
Dust will be controlled on the site using a variety of techniques based on varying site and weather conditions. Techniques to be used for dust mitigation include but are not limited to: the placement of mud mats at all truck access points; internal site temporary service roads; rinsing wheels prior to exiting the site; and the spraying of calcite along internal access routes to maintain moisture and to minimize dust kick‐up on construction roads.
For bulk excavation operations, adjacent sidewalks, streets and bike lanes will be mechanical swept and washed when required with the frequency of maintenance increasing depend on the frequency of use and weather conditions. Sidewalks along the perimeter of the site will be cleaned and swept when required to keep the sidewalks reasonably clean.
A seasonal specialty maintenance program will also be implemented for each season to allow for trimming or cutting of any weeds along hoarding perimeter in the Summer; cleaning leaf accumulation in the Fall; snow clearing operations in the Winter within 12 hours of a snowfall; and a post melt clean-up in the Spring.

3.3 Noise Control & Loading Areas

Construction noise impacts are related to the intensity of the noise sources and their distance from sensitive receptors. The Project is in an urban residential and retail area with high ambient noise levels that are directly related to the high volume of traffic on Richmond Street West and construction activities in the surrounding area.
All construction activities on the site shall be conducted in compliance with Noise Bylaw (Chapter 591, City of Toronto Municipal Code), which permits operation of construction equipment Monday to Friday 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Saturdays 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and no construction noise on Sundays and statutory holidays (amending bylaw 505-2006).
Deliveries will meet the requirements of the municipal Noise Bylaw. All queuing or marshalling of construction trucks on local streets will be coordinated with the local municipal By-law official. All deliveries shall be coordinated with the site staff prior to delivery.
The pumps used for dewatering may produce a humming sound and are necessary to remain operational during the duration of foundation installation to ensure the structural integrity of the excavation and public safety.

3.4 Construction Access Traffic Management

3.4.1 Traffic Management Plan
As required under the Occupational Health and Safety Act; Regulations for Construction Projects and the Ontario Traffic Manual – Book 7 – Temporary Conditions, project traffic engineer, has prepared a traffic management plan as per Appendix ‘A’ to:
    •   Provide protection for workers and the public who may be endangered by vehicular traffic
    •   Provide protection for vehicular traffic on streets adjacent to this project.
    •   Provide safe routes for vehicular and/or pedestrian traffic throughout the implementation duration of the Construction Management Plan.
3.4.2 Police Call-Duty
Paid-duty police officers may be required to control traffic as necessary for the safety of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.
Examples of pay-duty use includes but is not limited to: tower crane erection and dismantling; large equipment delivery; or flying forms over public and or private right of ways.
Alternatively, a flag personnel may be engaged, when required in lieu of Police, to coordinate traffic and delivery at the Project.
3.4.3 Flag Person
Approximately 15-30 delivery vehicles are anticipated to enter and exit the site each day from start to end of construction. The timing of deliveries will be between the times of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on weekdays, and 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturdays. Qualified and registered flag personnel will be employed to assist with the flow of construction vehicles entering or leaving the site. The direct supervision of all registered flag personnel will be by an employee of SMC.
3.4.4 Worker Access & Parking
The total number of construction personnel at the Project will vary from approximately 5 to 200 people depending on the construction activity or stage.
The Construction Manager will promote the use of public transportation and high occupancy vehicles (HOV) by construction workers. Public transit is available along Church Street and Dundas Street East.
Paid parking is available off-site, and the Construction Manager will direct workers not to park on streets that do not permit public parking.
3.4.5 Street and Laneway Closure Management
Any street or laneway closures will be done in compliance with and to the satisfaction of the City of Toronto. Every effort will be made to reduce any street or laneway closures to a minimum to avoid disruption to normal street traffic operations.
3.4.6 Material Hoists
A Material Hoist will be installed within the construction footprint. The hoist has been located as to not interfere with local traffic and pedestrians.

3.5 Construction Trailer & Security

A temporary construction office will be set up. The office will be equipped with power, phone, computers, and fax and will serve the building during construction.
All gates will be locked during hours where no construction activity is occurring. Appropriate signage will be installed to ensure that the safety of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists is considered at all times. Adjacent sidewalks with overhead protection will have appropriate lighting to ensure adequate visibility at all times of the day and night.
Emergency contact will be monitored via a 24 – 7 telephone monitoring station number that will contact site personnel when possible. If site personnel are not available a monitoring station guard will be dispatched and/or the appropriate emergency services contacted. The monitoring station emergency contact number will be posted at all construction gates.

3.6 Permits

The Construction Management Plan has been developed in collaboration with the local municipal work zone coordinator, community groups and councillor’s office and has been permitted by Community Council and Right of Way Management as Permit #787724.
A justification letter was provided to Right-of-Way Management as part of this application requesting a total of 48 months lane occupancy for the period May 1, 2019 to April 30, 2023 for Dalhousie Street.
    •   Dalhousie Lane Occupancy: May 1, 2019 through November 30, 2022.
    •   Church Street Parking Reduction for site access: May 1, 2021 through April 30, 2023 (and as required).
    •   All permits will be visible and posted at the site office (CMP Permit: #787724).

4. Community Communication Program

Communication of the Construction Management Plan and community engagement will be through the Community Communication Program. This Program includes but is not limited to:

4.1 Construction Information Website
