SMA wins 5 awards at 2014 CEA Showcase Gala
SMA Consulting Ltd. received 5 awards at the 2014 Consulting Engineers of Alberta Showcase Gala. The awards were for three different projects: North LRT Drainage Projects, Gold Bar Thickener/Fermenter Operational Simulation, and the Earned Value Integrated Management System (EVIMS). We are honoured to have the opportunity to work with our clients on these projects and congratulate them on their success.
North LRT Drainage Projects
The North LRT Drainage Projects, undertaken for the City of Edmonton, won the Award of Excellence for Project Management and the Award of Merit for Small Firm – Big Impact. The projects involved rerouting and augmenting drainage for Edmonton’s new North LRT with a new 500m storm tunnel and the relocation of a large double-barrel tunnel.
Gold Bar Thickener/Fermenter Operational Simulation
The Gold Bar Thickener/Fermenter Operational Simulation won the Award of Excellence for Small Firm – Big Impact and the Award of Merit for Studies, Software, and Special Services. This project provided support for EPCOR’s Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant. SMA Consulting developed an operations simulation model for the thickener/fermenter tanks, generating 24 million pieces of data and 16,000 lines of code to allow EPCOR to test strategies for handling these loads safely and with full control.
EVIMS, the Earned Value Integrated Monitoring System, won the Award of Excellence for Studies, Software, and Special Services and is SMA Consulting’s answer to uncertainty management and forecasting on infrastructure projects.
