Jasper National Park Environmental Impact Analysis
Additional Mitigations
J13-040 MCSR – Parks Canada – Icefields Centre Emergency Egress
July 02, 2013
1. Project Description
Parks Canada has identified the requirement for a new Theatre space to be located in the existing Gallery area of the Jasper Icefields Centre at the lower level. Demolition of existing Gallery
was completed in October 2012 leaving the space ready for the Theatre addition. As part of the
National Building Code compliance as emergency egress path will be constructed to provide access to a safe public way from the lover level of the Icefields Centre building. The proposed
egress path with serve two functions:
a) Emergency egress from the lower level of the building, and
b) Construction access during the period of the construction of Gallery Theatre renovation.
The design criteria for the trail will be compliant to the building code. It needs to be wheelchair
accessible and stable on the given cross slope. The egress footprint will be the minimum width
allowed by code to retain the as much vegetation as possible on the existing slopes. The trail
will be built with granular surface on top of the mechanically stabilized granular sub-grade with
the building up approach (compacted granular fill). This project is tentatively scheduled to
commence in the Fall of 2013 and will be completed during the fall of 2014.
This site falls within the TR1 – Tyrrell 1 Ecosite within the Upper Subalpine Ecozone which is
typical in this area in valley bottoms and benchlands.

2. Relevant Best Management Practices:
Parks Canada has determined that this project will be assessed through the Best Management
Practices (BMPs) pathway under the Parks Canada Interim Directive on Implementation of the
Canadian Environmental Assessment Act 2012 and the Guide to the Parks Canada Environmental
Impact Analysis Process under CEAA 2012 (the guide) will be followed. Thus, all applicable activities of this project will comply with the best practices outlined in:
Model Class Screening for Routine Projects: Table 11.2 – Mitigation for Reducing Impacts of
Trails, Parks and Recreation Grounds
J13-040 MCSR – Parks Canada – Icefields Centre emergency egress
3. Additional Mitigations:
1. Please contact the ESO - Jurgen Deagle (780.852.6224) two weeks (or as soon as possible) prior to commencement of work. The ESO will schedule an on-site start up meeting,
arrange site surveillance, and will issue Special Activity Permits.
2. The proponent is responsible for site security and public safety at all times.
3. All equipment will clean of mud and vegetative debris prior to use on this project.
4. A spill kit capable of handling 110% of the total fuels on-site will be available at worksite
and all staff trained in its use. Parks Canada dispatch (780-852-6155) or ESO (780-8526224) will be notified immediately of any fuel spills or leaks.
5. All vehicle re-fuelling will take place at licensed facilities (gas station) or on hardened
surfaces (roadways or parking lots).
6. Noise and air pollution from equipment on-site will be kept to a minimum by shutting
off equipment when not in use.
7. All workers must have the required protective equipment for the job and be trained in
accordance with the provisions included in the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety
Act and Worker’s Compensation Board.
8. All garbage must be stored and handled in compliance with the National Park Garbage
Regulations. Burning or burial of waste is not permitted.
9. Work shall stop immediately if cultural resource materials are uncovered at any time
and shall only recommence upon the instruction of a cultural resource specialist.
10. The ESO may require other mitigations in response to any unforeseen environmental
impacts.
Implementation of the above mitigation measures and those identified in The Model Class
Screening for Routine Projects: Table 11.2 – Mitigation for Reducing Impacts of Trails, Parks
and Recreation Grounds will be the responsibility of the project proponent. The ESO may inspect the work.

In the event of emergency operations (as defined in Section
11.11 of the MCSR), call Emergency Services and/or Parks
Canada at the phone numbers indicated on Attachment 2.
Ensure all activities are conducted at least 30 m from
waterbodies.
Prepare a satisfactory Sediment and Erosion Control Plan
covering all construction and restoration periods.
Acquire necessary sediment control equipment (i.e., straw
bales, landscaping fabric, sediment fences, etc.) and install
prior to construction.
Extra planning should be used for areas with silty deposits
and sloped areas with sandy deposits.
Identify soils susceptible to compaction (fine textured and
organic soils).
In sensitive areas, use equipment of low bearing weight, low
PSI tires, or tracked vehicles, especially in sensitive sites.
Building material storage must be contained in one area and
clearly flagged to prevent soil compaction and reduce area of
disturbance.
10. Identify wildlife habitat that may be impacted by activities
and avoid sensitive areas.
11. Identify and avoid wetlands.
12. Ensure only necessary vegetation is removed and delineate
areas to be avoided with biodegradeable flagging tape and/or
temporary fences.
When working adjacent to natural areas:
13. According to the wildlife that may be present, schedule high
noise level activities and other intrusive construction
activities to avoid critical life stages (breeding, nesting,
rearing, migration). Consult with Parks Canada to discuss any
localized wildlife concerns.
14. Confine “noise” activities to hours set out in Attachment 2.
15. Consider posting wildlife signs to reduce vehicle speeds and
increase driver awareness near construction areas were
wildlife mortality has or is likely to occur.
16. Educate workers to not harass or attract wildlife, keep the site
free of food scraps, and dispose of garbage in bear proof
containers.
17. Determine there are archaeological sites in the area (see
attached maps).
18. Consult with Parks Canada if sites are identified.

intent, and the minimum overall requirements. The Contractor is expected to
provide a complete state-of-the-art touchscreen interface.
.2
The philosophy of the touchscreen interface design is to be simplicity and
intuitiveness – "one button per task." Pressing a button marked "PC" may: turn
on the video projector; select matrix video switcher input and output, select DSP
audio input; and preset volume control.
.3
Once the set-up requirements for a presentation type have been completed, the
panel is to display basic operating controls for the selected presentation device,
along with buttons to allow the user to jump directly to another presentation type
without needing to back up one or more levels.
.4
The touchscreen pages are to be arranged in descending layers of complexity
such that a basic user only sees basic functions, and more complex control for

advanced users or technical staff is only revealed by drilling down to a deeper
level.
.5
A sleep mode is to turn off the panel illumination after an adjustable period of
inactivity (initially set to 5 minutes). Once asleep, touching the panel brings it
back to life without changing screens.
.6
Button nomenclature is to be simple and unambiguous. Except for standard
transport controls (i.e. fast forward, rewind, play, pause, etc.) or DVD menu
navigation controls, icons are not to be used alone without text. Button
highlighting (i.e. to indicate the active state) is to be immediately obvious
(e.g. change button background to contrast with the inactive state).
.7
Power On Screen:
.1
Display the facility logo and a button to access a panel adjustment/set-up
page. Touching this screen anywhere other than the set-up button causes
the default “Main Control Page to display.
.2
If a set of maintenance pages is required, the main page is to be
accessed from this screen. This access must be password protected.
.3
Reset all devices to a predefined idle state.
.8
Power off Button: Display a power off button on all system mode screens. When
this button is pressed a pop up display should ask if the user is sure they want to
turn the system off with a “YES” and “NO” button option. This will ensure that the
user can easily turn off all aspects of the system without accidently shutting off
the system and having to wait while the projector goes through its cool down
period. When “YES” is selected, all aspects of the AV system should turn off
automatically
.9

Touchscreen GUI Programming Guidelines. Note: This guideline is not a
definitive instruction on how to program the remote control system. Its objective
to provide a conceptual guideline to the Contractor on how the control system
should perform based on Departmental Representative feedback. It is the
responsibility of the Contractor to take the information provided and combine it
with their practical engineering experience to develop a fully functional program
that will satisfy the needs of the Departmental Representative for a simple and
easy to operate AV system. Coordination between Contractor and Departmental
Representative is definitely a must during the programming stage. The remote
control touchscreen is to have the following pages, buttons, macro functions, and

between cable bundles inside the rack. Dress, bundle and tie all rack cables to
appropriate wiring management accessories (lacing bars – vertical/horizontal,
strain relief, etc.) for equipment rack use.
.6
Use grommets or sleeves on all cable pass-through or knock-out holes cut out on
plastic or metal panels. Pay particular attention on all cable paths. Ensure that
cables do not have direct contact with any sharp or rough edges that can
damage them.
.7
Provide sufficient slack to cable bundles going into equipment racks. Equipment
rack will be movable for servicing and maintenance without straining the cable
bundles.
.8
Provide sufficient slack to cable bundles for equipment located in millwork or
cabinetry. Sufficient slack should be available to remove the equipment from its
shelf and disconnect it from its harness. This rule also applies to equipment on
pull-out shelves.
.9
Prevent cable stress due to over-tightened cable ties, sharp bends, insufficient
cable slack, and pulling tension. Excessive cable stress can change the
electrical properties of most cables and will affect overall system performance.
.10
No splices are allowed anywhere between cable ends. All cable runs should be
continuous.
.11
Practice good soldering or crimping techniques when terminating cable with a
connector or lug. The Departmental Representative will perform checks on
soldered and/or crimped connectors from time to time. Inspect all solders and
crimps before finalizing the termination, re-terminate all bad terminations.
.12
Unused cables will be ‘capped and stowed’.
.13
All exposed conductors at cable ends, e.g. cable shields, will be insulated using
heat shrink to prevent accidental short circuits with other cables in the connector
or in its surrounding area.
.14
The Contractor will assume all expenses of replacing any supplied or installed
cables rejected by an inspection authority.

AUDIO CABLES - GENERAL
.1
Unbalanced audio signals will not be run through cables greater than 30 feet.
Use balanced line transmitter /line receiver units when required.
.2
When wiring devices within single or multi-ganged equipment racks, two audio
devices with high-impedance and unbalanced input and/or outputs can be
connected together using two-cable unbalanced lines provided that the cable is
shielded. Connect shields to ground at source-end only.
.3
All audio outputs will match audio inputs. Use appropriate signal transformers
such as RANE BB-44, RANE BB-22, RDL TX-1A, TX-LC2, RDL FP-UBC2 to
convert unbalanced to balanced lines and vice versa. The Contractor will furnish
the required type and quantity of transformers at no additional cost.
.4
Use appropriate signal transformers such as RDL TX-LM2 and RDL STM-1 to
convert microphone-level to line-level signals and vice versa. The Contractor will
be responsible for furnishing the required type and quantity of transformer at no
additional cost.
.5
Do not passively split (‘Y’ connections) unbalanced audio signals. Balanced
audio signals can be split once only. Use appropriate active amplifiers to
distribute signals to two or more destinations. The Contractor will be responsible
for furnishing the required type and quantity of distribution or amplification
devices at no additional cost. An exception to this would be the presence of a
passive ‘loop out’ connection from an audio device. In such a case, this passive
‘loop out’ can be used as a duplicate audio source. However, if the passive ‘loop
out’ signal has to be sent to two or more destinations, an active amplifier will be
used to accomplish this task. A device with an active or buffered ‘loop out’ signal
can be used to drive an indefinite chain of devices having a similar active or
buffered looping output.
2.3
VIDEO CABLES - GENERAL
.1
Use video cables that have a bandwidth rating of, at least, twice the maximum
frequency of the source signal. Inappropriately furnished or sub-standard cables
will be rejected by the Departmental Representative.
.2
All cables shall have a minimum FT-4 rating. Where local jurisdiction requires FT6 cable must be used.
.3
Use RG6 cables for all cable runs exceeding 65 feet, otherwise use RG59 cable
for all standard video applications

.8
Do not passively split video signals (e.g. ‘Y’ connections or passive splitters). Use
appropriate active amplifiers to distribute video signals. The Contractor will
furnish these distribution amplifiers at no additional cost. An exception to this
would be the presence of a ‘loop out’ connection from a VTR or Video Monitor.
In such a case, this ‘loop out’ can be used as a duplicate video source. However,
if the ‘loop out’ signal has to be sent to two or more destinations, an active
amplifier will be used to accomplish this task.
