TORONTO – Consulting Engineers of Ontario (CEO) hosted the 2016 Ontario Consulting Engineering Awards Gala April 16 at the International Centre. CEO presented awards to 14 engineering firms whose projects contributed to improving Ontario’s social, economic and environmental well-being.
The premier award of the night, the Willis Chipman Award, went to AECOM, CH2M Hill Canada and Hatch Mott MacDonald (HMM) for their work on Union Station.
AECOM was awarded for project management, detail design and construction of the Union Station and Front Street revitalization project while CH2M Hill Canada was recognized for its project management of the Union Pearson Express. HMM’s work of designing and constructing a Northwest PATH Pedestrian Tunnel also won the Willis Chipman Award.
“While each project is the epitome of outstanding engineering endeavours, together they represent a multimodal transportation hub that moves people across the Greater Toronto Area and beyond,” said Barry Steinberg, chief executive officer of the association. “The projects of AECOM, CH2M Hill and HMM have collectively contributed to transforming Union Station into the state-of-art transportation gateway for Ontarians,” added Steinberg.
Five Awards of Excellence were handed out to Associated Engineering, IBI Group, JADE Plus, Morrison Hershfield and Robinson Consultants. Six Awards of Merit were given to Amec Foster Wheeler Environment & Infrastructure, Arup, Blackwell Structural Engineers, Dillon Consulting, Hatch and R.V. Anderson Associates.
The Ontario Consulting Engineering Awards has become the province’s most prestigious awards program since its inception 13 years ago, raising the profile of the consulting engineering community. The award winners were selected by a panel of five independent judges who have distinguished backgrounds in different fields of the industry.
