The winner of the Schreyer award in the 2008 Canadian Consulting Engineering Awards was the Replacement for the Highway 417 Island Park Drive

Overpass, Ottawa, by McCormick Rankin Corporation (part of MMM Group). The project involved replacing a bridge with two 650-tonne structures overnight!

The announcement was made at an awards presentation dinner held at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier Hotel in Ottawa on February 24.

A new “Tree of Life/Un Arbre Aimer Award” was also announced that evening. This award for outstanding environmental stewardship was given for the first time. It went to a project entitled “Trees for Tomorrow, Jamaica,” by Tecsult International Limited of Quebec City. The Canadian engineering company helped to develop sustainable land-use practices to restore forests and watersheds in the mountains of Jamaica.

Ten other projects won awards of excellence. The winning projects were all published in the October-November 2008 issue of this magazine, but the announcement of the two special awards was held off until the February awards ceremony.

The awards are jointly sponsored by the Association of Canadian Engineering Companies (ACEC) and Canadian Consulting Engineer magazine.

Entries for the 2009 awards are now invited -see page 36.
