Engineering firm recognized for Burnaby Lake dredging project

Associated Engineering has received an Award of Excellence at the Canadian Consulting Engineering Awards for its work on the $22-million Burnaby Lake rejuvenation project.

Judges cited the project for demonstrating excellence in engineering, innovation and environmental management.

The company led a complex and groundbreaking process to dredge the lake which had filled in considerably with sediment after 30 years.

“We have a large office in Burnaby, minutes from the project site, and so we shared in the City of Burnaby’s vision to restore Burnaby Lake,” says project manager Peter Degroot. “Our multidiscipline team and our partners resolved many technical challenges to ensure sustainability and respect for the natural environment.”
