WINDSOR, Ont. ­– The project team behind the Gordie Howe International Bridge has been honoured with a Brownie Award, distributed in recognition of teams and projects that incorporate the rehabilitation of brownfield sites into their work.

Brownfield sites refer to land that was once contaminated, underused, or undeveloped. The Brownie Awards are a partnership between the Canadian Brownfields Network (CBN) and Actual Media Inc.

Nominations in the Best Large Project category are evaluated based on the team’s strategic acquisition of brownfield lands, the earthworks and remediation performed during the design and construction phase, and the project’s approach to financing for economic and ecological restoration.

The Gordie Howe International Bridge team was proud to be recognized for their incorporation of brownfield redevelopment into a project of its scale, said Clayton Sereres, senior director of regulatory compliance services at the Windsor-Detroit Bridge authority and a member of the team.


“The Gordie Howe International Bridge project embodies the essence of brownfield redevelopment,” said Sereres. “The project is transforming multiple brownfield sites into a symbol of progress, sustainability and cross-border cooperation. We are proud to be recognized for the exciting progress we’ve made to date.”
