The four other Engineering Excellence Awards went to:

  • Wood Environment and Infrastructure Solutions for the TRACC Tire Fire Emergency Response at Minto Industrial Park in Minto, N.B.
  • Hive Engineering for Saint Edouard-de-Kent Harbour Boat Fire risk mitigation and environmental remediation services in Saint-Edouard-de-Kent, N.B.

“These awards provide the opportunity to recognize the valuable contributions consulting engineers make to our communities,” says ACEC-NB executive director Christy Cunningham. “They bring focus to the importance of these projects—and consulting engineers in general—to the social, economic and environmental quality of life of all New Brunswickers.”
