The annual Minister’s Awards for Transportation Innovation recognize the innovative people and organizations in Alberta who plan, design, construct, operate or maintain a roadway, transit service or related initiative. Recipients of the 2018 Minister’s Awards for Transportation Innovation represent the diversity and expertisefound in all areas of the province of Alberta.
The Ministry explained,"The project team’s solution was to use full-depth, full-width, precast concrete deck panels connected through reinforced ultra high-performance concrete joints. This approach drastically reduced the volume of cast-in-place concrete and associated formwork to be performed over the river."
This innovative and award-winning solution is the first of its kind designed for a multi-span, vehicular bridge in Alberta. As the general contractor, we are honoured to be part of the successful implementation of this project.
