Capital Works Program

The City's Capital Works Program for roads, water, sewers, drainage, traffic signals and street lighting is primarily designed by external engineering consultants. Consultants for specific areas of work are pre-qualified and then are selected on the basis of invited proposals based on detailed terms of reference.

Construction of all City works follow the Master Municipal Construction Documents (MMCD), the City of Burnaby Supplemental Specifications and Detail Drawings, and project specific drawings and specifications. The City has adopted the MMCD Platinum Book and the updated City of Burnaby Supplementary Specifications and Detailed Drawings.

Microsoft Word template tender documents are available upon request. The consultant's designs are then reviewed by Project Managers who post the construction opportunities on BC Bid.

What We Do

  1. We ensure the process for tendering is followed for City initiated projects.
  2. We monitor the progress of these projects and approve payments.
  3. We ensure project compliance with all licensing, insurance and bonding requirements.

If you need to pick up a tender document or get onto a Bidder's list, Purchasing Department can assist you. Contact them directly, or visit the Bid Opportunities page.
