Laurel Street Works Yard Project

Laurel Street Works Yard

The City is replacing the aging works yard facility at 5780 Laurel Street. The project forms part of a multi-phased Master Plan to redevelop the Laurel Street and Still Creek Works Yards in order to upgrade the City’s facilities and ensure the continued delivery of public works and infrastructure services.

Open House

April 10, 2019, 5:30-8:00 PM
Burnaby City Hall (Foyer)

We invite you to view our updated plans and learn more about the project as part of the next phase of development and construction. Staff will be available at the Open House to address any questions or concerns. We want to hear from you. Please share your thoughts and comments with us at the Open House or online.

Laurel Street Works Yard

We first introduced the City’s program to replace the Laurel Street Works Yard at a neighbourhood Open House on September 16, 2017.

The City has engaged the design firm, Omicron Consulting Ltd, to advance the detailed design phase of the Laurel Street Works Yard project. The new facility will include space for the following operations:

  • Public works operations (road, water and drainage);
  • Central stores (warehousing for stock materials and parts);
  • Welding, paint and carpentry shops;
  • Fleet storage and repairs;
  • Offices (Engineering and Emergency Operations Centre); and,
  • Data centre

Since the first Open House, City staff have continued to work with Omicron to refine the design of the new works yard to improve its relation to the surrounding neighbourhood.

Still Creek Works Yard

Redevelopment of the Still Creek Works Yard is now complete and a number of high-traffic operations have been relocated from the Laurel Street site to the new facility, such as:

  • Sanitation;
  • Traffic Enforcement;
  • Traffic Meters;
  • Roads Marking and Signs; and,
  • Parks Operation Centre (i.e. parks maintenance, grass cutting)

As redevelopment of the Laurel Street site advances, the Still Creek site will also serve a critical back-up function to minimize any potential impacts on service delivery to the community.
