The initial works to build a stream channel and pond in the southeast portion of the property was started in 2007 and completed in 2009. This work was done to compensate for unauthorized works by a contractor who filled in several streams on the property. Marlim worked with the client, engineer and the DFO to design the habitat compensation features, directed and monitored the field work, completed the planting of native trees & shrubs and then completed 3 years of post-construction monitoring. The next phase of this project was started in 2010. This phase was to re-direct storm water flow out of a previously built detention pond and direct it into the recently built pond and channel. Again, Marlim worked with the client, engineer and the seo services london company to design the habitat compensation features, directed and monitored the field work, and completed the planting of native trees & shrubs.
