Following yesterday's announcement from the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies - Saskatchewan (ACEC-SK), we are pleased to share that an additional accolade has been bestowed upon the Regina Bypass project by The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP).
Today, the CCPPP announced the 2020 Winners of National Awards for Innovation and Excellence in P3s, and the Regina Bypass project received the Infrastructure Gold Award. The CCPPP awards committee noted improved traffic safety and mobility as key drivers for the project; previously, residents and visitors to the communities east of Regina had to cross the TransCanada Highway on non-signalized at-grade intersections, potentially in inclement weather with poor visibility. Since the bypass was completed, there has been a marked reduction in collisions.
In 2013, Associated Engineering was chosen to lead the Owner’s Engineer team for the Regina Bypass project.
Congratulations to all of the team members, including Derrick Tannahill, who served as the Project Director, and liaised with senior representatives from the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure, SaskBuilds, Regina Bypass Partners, Regina Bypass Design Builders and Regina Bypass Operations and Maintenance to collaborate and address issues in a timely manner to help keep the project on track, and the many other Associated Engineering and Associated Environmental team members who provided their expertise to deliver this important project.
This award marks the second straight year of our involvement on an award winning project, as last year, the Tłı̨chǫ All-Season Road received the Gold Award for Project Development.
