We are pleased to announce that our clients, the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte (MBQ) and the City of Vaughan have each won Ontario Public Works Association (OPWA) Project of the Year awards. The OPWA Awards Program recognizes outstanding individuals, groups and organizations representing the best in the public works profession.
Both communities will benefit greatly from these new facilities and we are proud to have led these projects to success.
MOHAWKS OF THE BAY OF QUINTE WATER TREATMENT PLANT – Project of the Year Small Municipality and Communities
The MBQ is the third largest First Nations community in Ontario and the only large community without a centralized water treatment plant. As a result, MBQ reserve residents experienced frequent well shortages and contamination problems and were on a community-wide Boil Water Advisory since 2008. A culmination of a 25-year process, we were retained in 2014 to implement the new water treatment plant and distribution system. As of January 2017, the MBQ community now have a reliable source of clean and safe drinking water.
CITY OF VAUGHAN CIVIC CENTRE RESOURCE LIBRARY – Project of the Year Structures
$10 Million to $50 Million
The Vaughan Civic Centre and Resource Library is setting new standards for library projects across the country. The unique facility features soaring ceilings, large open spaces and an extensive use of glass. Our team represented the City and Library by providing day-to-day leadership on all matters of development and construction. Since its opening, the 36,000-square foot community space has been attracting a record number of new visitors and has become a centerpiece of the community.
