Transit hub design garners award
The new transit operations and maintenance facility in Kamloops has led to an award for the company involved in its construction.
SNC Lavalin won the transit engineering services prize at the ninth annual provincial Deputy Minister’s Consulting Engineers Awards, created to recognize technical excellence in consulting-engineer services.
The company was cited for its innovative design that maximize safety and efficiency in the bus loop, create good sight lines for safe pedestrian crossing and made it possible to accommodate the city’s request for an expanded recycling and municipal-works yard, as well as a new BMX track next to the Ord Road facility.
Sanburn Technical Services of Kamloops was a finalist in the construction management and supervision category for its work on the Hagwilget suspension-bridge rehabilitation project.
