St. Andrew’s Lock and Dam replacement project wins ACEC-MB Award

Congratulations to our project team, client, and partners on being recognized with an Award of Merit in the Transportation category by the Assocation of Consulting Engineering Companies - Manitoba at last night's Awards of Excellence Gala in Winnipeg, MB! The replacement of the St. Andrew’s Lock and Dam is helping to ensure the future of a Canadian national treasure.

Originally constructed in 1910, the St. Andrew’s Lock and Dam is the world’s only Caméré curtain bridge-dam and a Canadian National Historic Site. Public Services and Procurement Canada retained Associated Engineering to replace the bridge deck and extend its operating life by 50 years. The project involved multiple engineering and related disciplines requiring working with century-old technology and materials. The St. Andrew’s Lock and Dam is important for the local economy and had to be kept open during construction, while protecting endangered bird species and limiting further ground disturbance to preserve the archaeologically-rich area around the facility.
