We are very proud to receive the ACEC-BC Award of Excellence in the Municipal & Civil Infrastructure category for the Port Mann Water Supply Tunnel project.

The Ausenco-led team designed a water supply tunnel, access shafts, valve chambers, and water pipe capable of withstanding the 6m horizontal soil movement expected following a 1:10,000 year earthquake. A number of design “firsts” were employed including the first use of limit-state design for a shaft pipe. Congratulations to the entire project team!
