R.V. Anderson Associates Limited Wins Two Awards for Project Excellence
R.V. Anderson Associates Limited wins two awards from Ontario Public Works Association for project excellence:
Technical Innovation Award
City of London’s Greenway Wastewater Treatment Plant Ash Handling System
The project used innovative technology to dewater ash, resulting in 70% less footprint than the old ash handling system, freeing up valuable space for a future expansion. The new system also provides savings in clean-up costs and improved aesthetics. This is the firm’s first Technical Innovation Award.
Project of the Year (Environment) Award
City of Greater Sudbury’s Lift Station Pump Upgrades
The project required complex construction and operational sequencing to undertake capacity upgrades in a station located 30 m deep in a rock shaft. Challenges related to maintaining operations and constructing within a very confined space required innovative construction techniques, including non-traditional equipment delivery and installation approaches, and enhanced worker safety requirements. The overall project concept of rehabilitating and expanding the existing station provided cost savings of $25 million in comparison to the original concept of replacing the facility.
RVA has been the recipient of eight OPWA Project of the Year Awards since 2006.
