Yesterday, the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies of British Columbia (ACEC-BC) recognized BC consulting engineering firms for their outstanding innovation and technical excellence at their Award for Engineering Excellence (Virtual) Gala.
We’re proud to share that both of our nominated projects were honoured in their respective categories! In the Municipal & Civil Infrastructure category, the Dawson City Water Treatment Plant received an Award of Excellence. We provided design and construction services for a new water treatment plant using cartridge filtration followed by ultraviolet and chlorine disinfection. Previously, the project also won an Award of Excellence at the 2020 Canadian Consulting Engineering (CCE) Awards.
In the Projects Under $2.5 Million category, the Seymour River Suspension Bridge project received an Award of Merit. We worked with Metro Vancouver to prepare a design to re-establish the Fisherman’s Trail network. The final design included two bridges – an elegant 73 metre suspension bridge for motor-less users, replacing the original Twin Bridge; and a robust 29 metre vehicle bridge across Canyon Creek to provide vehicle access to the stranded water infrastructure.
Congratulations to all of the members of both project teams!
