James A. Richardson International Airport, Elevated Roadway — Departures Level Bridge, Winnipeg, Manitoba
Winner of the ACEC — MB Award of Excellence: Infrastructure/Transportation, this project is part of a larger redevelopment program for Winnipeg’s airport. AECOM provided engineering services for the 506-meter-long (1,660 foot-long) elevated roadway, which improves access to the airport’s new terminal building. The structure, which consists of well spaced columns and a post-tensioned ribbed beam superstructure, connects the airport’s upper departures level bridge and lower arrivals levels.
Interceptor Sewer Network Condition Assessment, Winnipeg, Manitoba
Consisting of more than 119 kilometers (73 miles) of pipe, buried in some places 20 meters (65 feet) underground, Winnipeg’s interceptor sewer network is a complex and critical component of the city’s municipal water infrastructure. AECOM’s use of advanced multi-sensors to overcome the challenge of inspecting the sewer by conventional means helped the project win the ACEC — MB Award of Excellence: Municipal & Water Technology.
Shawnee Park Subdivision Land Use Re-designation and Outline Plan, Calgary, Alberta
As the winner of the CEA Showcase Award of Excellence: Community Development, this project highlights how engineering expertise serves to advance environmental innovation. AECOM worked with Geo-Energy Enterprises on the land use and outline planning and the successful approval of a new bio-diverse and sustainable residential development. Services included environmental, geotechnical, stormwater, landscape architecture, infrastructure and transportation engineering.
