The Consulting Engineers of British Columbia (CEBC) announced the winners of its Awards for Engineering Excellence at a gala dinner attended by 300 people on Saturday, March 3 in Vancouver.
The Lieutenant-Governors’ Award went to EBA Engineering and Sandwell Engineering for their Seismic Vulnerability Assessment of the First Narrows and Port Mann Water Supply Crossings for the Greater Vancouver Water District. The same project also won an award for excellence in the Soft Engineering category. Both pipelines are potentially vulnerable to damage during a major earthquake because the soil can liquefy around the buried pipe and cause severe stresses on the pipe. Other firms that won awards for their projects were Stantec Consulting, Buckland & Taylor, Keen Engineering, Read Jones Christoffersen, SNC-Lavalin/Klohn Crippen, Kerr Wood Leidal, McElhanney Consulting Services, Horizon Engineering/Knight Piesold/Sperling Hansen and Urban Systems.
