The Astotin Creek Resiliency Study received an Award of Excellence in the Environment category. The Creek, located in Alberta’s Strathcona County, was the site of multiple severe floods over the past decade. WSP’s focus on the three Es, environment, engagement, and engineering, has helped create a plan to help protect the watershed and minimize the impact of future floods. The study was carried out in partnership with the University of Alberta and InnoTech.
Golder’s Technical Excellence and Innovation Program won an Award of Excellence in the Community Outreach and In-House Initiatives category. This program brings together internal experts within similar technical disciplines, creating a platform for the sharing of ideas and best practices, discussing industry innovations and how to apply them, and opportunities for mentorship and skills training for younger professionals in the group.
The Bear Street Redevelopment Project captured an Award of Merit in the Community Development category. This innovative approach to roadway reconstruction has transformed one of downtown Banff’s busiest streets into a pedestrian-friendly area where people and vehicles co-exist to create a destination for tourists. The street features enhanced drainage systems and innovative ascents to keep people engaged in the shops and sights that the roadway has to offer.
