Bill Curtis Award for Outstanding Transportation Project of the Year, awarded annually by Canadian Institute of Transportation Engineers, Greater Vancouver Section.
Bill Curtis, long time City of Vancouver Engineer and Director of Engineering in the late 1970s and 80s, was responsible for the Cambie Bridge and the Cassiar Connector. The award celebrates technical excellence in the field of transportation engineering, design, and traffic operations. The 2012 award went to Traffic Management of the Port Mann/Highway 1 Project. Recipients of the award were Kiewit/Flatiron; McElhanney; and Binnie’s Edmund Lee, for TI Corp.
The largest Design-Build contract ever in North America, the project’s scope includes design/construction of 37 km of urban freeway, 17 interchanges and a new 10-lane, cable-stay bridge crossing of the Fraser River. It traverses through five municipalities (Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Surrey and Langley).
The busiest roadway in British Columbia, the success of the PMH1 project is the result of a strong spirit of partnership between the project’s Designer, Constructor, and Owner.
BC MOTI Deputy Minister’s Consulting Engineers Awards (2011-2012)
- Binnie wins the award in the Construction Management and Supervision Services category for our work on the John Hart – Highway 97, Bennett Creek to Link Creek. This project was 11 kilometres in length and located in the Pine Pass area north of Prince George. The project budget was approx $40,000,000 and took 3 years to construct. Because of the remote location, Binnie set up a fully functional on-site office in a trailer and many of our team members resided in mobile homes at the job site.
- Binnie was also a finalist in the Specialized Engineering Services category for our work on the Highway 37A Stewart Flood Response, an award shared with a team including five other consultants. In September 2011 a heavy rain event triggered mud slides and flooding, closing off the only highway access into the Town of Stewart. Binnie’s experienced day labour personnel were called into action by MOTI to restore the only access into town.
BC MOTI Deputy Minister’s Consulting Engineers Awards (2010)
- Finalist Award: Design and Contract Preparation – Roads; for the Highway 97: 148 Mile to Likely Road Four-Lane Design. Binnie completed the Functional and Detailed Design for the realignment and widening of four kilometres of rural highway to upgrade it to a four-lane arterial standard.
- Finalist Award: Specialized Engineering Services – Binnie’s Project Services team was a finalist for Project Management Services on the South Coast Region Lake-of-the-Woods Left Turn project.
