Earlier this week, we received two awards from the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies – Manitoba (ACEC-MB). Not only did we win an Award of Excellence in the Transportation category, we also won the top Keystone Award for our Waverley Underpass project.

Massive congratulations to everyone involved! These are well-deserved recognitions and significant awards from our peers. Fantastic work!

Keystone Award and Award of Excellence: Transportation
Project Name: Waverley Underpass
Client: City of Winnipeg 

Dillon and AECOM were retained for detailed design and contract administration of the $155M Waverley Underpass at the CN Mainline. The multidisciplinary project was centered around a composite steel and cast in place concrete bridge structure, as well as a pump station and outfall, over 3 kilometres of large diameter land drainage sewer, multiple kilometres of roadways and active transportation paths, and a raised railway line, all topped off with public art and landscaping. The project was constructed over a four-year period with an inventive rail and road detour, maintaining almost uninterrupted public and CN access.
