Commercial Development meets Stormwater Runoff Regulations
New commercial development meets Moncton’s strict stormwater runoff regulations
The new McLaughlin Place retail centre in Moncton, New Brunswick, is meeting the city’s mandate of eliminating any increase in stormwater runoff while maximizing the number of parking spaces. Instead of using a detention pond or sump, the designers decided to use a system of chambers under the parking lot that would collect and hold stormwater runoff from the lot and rooftops.
The one-hectare commercial development with five buildings is located near the Université de Moncton. Plans call for apartment buildings to be added in the future.
