WINNIPEG – The Manitoba Heavy Construction Association (MHCA) recognized a number of road and highway projects at their annual infrastructure and construction awards last Friday.
The awards span seven categories overall, with nominated projects being evaluated based on criteria such as quality of work, adherence to contract specifications, complexity and completion within timetable and budget.
Maple Leaf Construction won in both the paving and urban works categories. Their bituminous reconstruction work along a 0.3 kilometre stretch of Highway 3 was honoured in the paving category, while a series of thin overlay projects around the Dauphin area were recognized in the urban works category.
Strilkiwski Contracting’s work in Manitoba’s northern region along Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 39 and Provincial Roads (PR) 616 to 627 won in the grading category. Bayview Construction’s twinning and roundabout bituminous reconstruction on PTH 6 won the special projects award. In the major structures category, M.D. Steele Construction won for the construction of a new bridge on PR 366 at Valley River.
Armcom Construction Ltd. won the minor structures category for work at Falcon Lake and West Hawk Lake access, with Tri-Core Projects’ flood protection work for the Mary Jane Dam being recognized in the water infrastructure projects category.
The Government of Manitoba sees these awards as a testament to the importance of construction and infrastructure to the many communities across the province, according to Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Lisa Naylor.
“Our government knows how important the construction industry is to Manitoba communities,” said Naylor. “These awards celebrate the outstanding impact our construction sector has on our province, from trade and commerce to road safety and employment opportunities for Manitobans.”
