The New Champlain Bridge Corridor (NCBC) project in Montréal, Québec, received the Envision® Platinum award for sustainable infrastructure. Envision recognition for this iconic and regionally important infrastructure project was officially unveiled on June 5, 2018 to coincide with World Environment Day. An award celebration was hosted by Signature on the Saint-Lawrence Construction (SSLC) near the project site in Montréal at the annual BBQ, organized by the Consortium. Attendees at the event included Melissa Peneycad, ISI’s Director of Sustainable Projects, as well as Hugh Boyd, SSL Project Manager; Marthe Robitaille, SSL Environmental Manager; and Chantale Côté, Senior director of the New Champlain bridge project at Infrastructure Canada and a crowd of over 150 people. The NCBC project is the first Envision-recognized project in the province of Québec (fourth in Canada overall) and the second bridge project to earn an Envision award in North America.
The NCBC project includes a new 3.4-kilometer bridge connecting the cities of Montréal to the west and Brossard to the east, the replacement of the existing Île-des-Soeurs (Nun’s Island) Bridge, as well as highway redevelopment work along the A-15 and A-10 in Montréal and Brossard respectively.
The NCBC project is a major regional transportation system and a significant throughway allowing for nearly $20 billion annually in Canada-US trade. It is being delivered through a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) with the Federal Government acting as the public partner and the Signature on the Saint-Lawrence (SSL) as the private partner responsible for carrying out the project. The SSL consortium is comprised of four companies, including SNC-Lavalin, Dragados Canada Inc., Flatiron Construction Canada Limited, and EBC.
