The 27th annual Awards for Engineering Excellence Gala highlighted achievement in B.C. engineering. Congratulations to all the winners!
Collings Johnston Inc. received an honourable mention at the event for our “Program Management of the Roberts Bank Rail Corridor Program – An Unprecedented Collaboration” submission in the soft engineering category.
The Roberts Bank Rail Corridor Program was an unprecedented collaboration of 12 funding Partners to deliver 9 overpasses and road improvements along this 70-kilometre rail through 4 municipalities. The Program supported trade, while minimizing train impacts to communities, and improving safety. Partners included industry as well as all levels of government, and all held a financial stake in the success of the Program.
As Program Managers, Collings Johnston Inc. (CJI) oversaw the development and implementation of the Program. This included the organisation and management of the partnership, and the production of the implementation and delivery plans. CJI managed First Nations, public communications and environmental interests at the Program level to reduce risk, develop strong relationships, and maintain consistent messaging and approach. This successfully facilitated delivery of the $307 million Program infrastructure on time and under budget.
