The Southwest Transitway Project in Winnipeg has been awarded an Award of Excellence by the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies (ACEC) at a recent ceremony and dinner.

“Winnipeg Transit is excited and honoured to have Stage One of the Southwest Transitway recognized at the 2013 ACEC Awards of Excellence Event,” said Dave Wardrop, Director of Winnipeg Transit.

“Congratulations to our project consultant, Dillon Consulting Limited, and to all of our staff that participated in, and contributed to the successful delivery of the first leg of the Southwest Transitway. It is terrific to have the efforts of staff formally recognized by a professional organization such as ACEC, as well as being a tribute to the success of such an important project and our organization as a whole.”

The ACEC of Manitoba recognized the best of the province’s engineering profession in innovation, the advancement of technology and contributions to society at its annual Awards of Excellence last month.

The awards event was attended by more than 300 representatives of the engineering industry, government and business community.

The Southwest Transitway, which won an award in the Infrastructure and Transportation category, was a complex project in both design and construction.

It was built within an existing dense, urban environment on an alignment in immediate proximity to the CN mainline, the Red River, a Manitoba Hydro substation, major arterial roads, multiple underground utilities, and several private properties.

Dillon Consulting Limited was recognized for its ability to embrace these complexities to complete the project and deliver rapid transit service beginning in April of 2012.
