SCI’S CONFEDERATION BRIDGE

Acknowledged as One of Canada's Top 5 Most Significant Engineering Achievements of the 20th Century!

In recognition of ground breaking engineering ingenuity demonstrating the scope and diversity of Canada's engineering profession, the Confederation Bridge, led by SCI, was named one of the five most significant engineering achievements of the 20th century by National Engineering Week 1999.

The rigorous selection process was jointly conducted by a group of the Nation's most prestigious engineering organizations. The executive committee that made the selection includes representatives of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers, the Canadian Academy of Engineering, the Engineering Institute of Canada, the Association of Consulting Engineers of Canada, the National Council of Deans of Engineering and Applied Science, and the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students. Along with Confederation Bridge, the Pacemaker, the Canadarm, the IMAX system, and the Transcontinental Railway Rogers Pass Tunnel were also distinguished as being among Canada's five most notable engineering Achievements of the Century.

In addition, the Confederation Bridge was one of two SCI led projects nominated in 1999 as one of the top 125 projects over the past 125 years by Engineering News Record, a renowned industry journal. That list of engineering achievements included many distinguished landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Panama Canal, the Hoover Dam, the Golden Gate bridge, just to name a few.

THREE-TIME MONTGOMERY AWARD WINNER

As three-time winners of the Canadian Construction Association's prestigious Montgomery Memorial Award for Excellence and Innovation, the people of SCI have been recognized for devising unique construction engineering solutions for:

Vancouver's Cambie Street Bridge, the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics Speed Skating Oval, and the 13 kilometer Confederation Bridge, a solution declared "ingenious" by the project's Independent Engineer.

From the early days of initiating design-build alternate solutions for the City of Calgary to the present, SCI employees have been acknowledged as innovators in the conception and implementation of value-engineered design-build solutions, as well as leaders in the construction industry.
