The Ausenco-led team designed a tunnel beneath the Fraser River capable of withstanding the up to 6 metres of horizontal soil movement at the access shafts and valve chambers expected following a 1:10,000 year earthquake. The prestigious Schreyer award recognizes the innovation and technical ingenuity of the team which employed a number of design “firsts” in Canada.
These are the third and fourth major industry awards for this project, which won the ACEC-BC Award of Excellence in 2017 and the Tunnelling Association of Canada’s “Innovative Tunnelling Project of the Year” award in 2016. A big congratulations to the entire project team!
