Working with a smaller site, Kellam Berg Engineering and Surveys revised the original Master Site Development Plan to produce an efficient site which still included flexibly for future expansion. Innovations included Provincial approval of a privately owned stormwater pond which provides non-potable water for irrigating the race track. By collaborating closely with racing industry experts, Kellam Berg was able to deliver a race track and site layout which will accommodate a variety of racing events and facility expansion in the future.
