“Winning the top awards in three categories from such a recognized organization that maintains high standards in professional and technical construction work says a lot about the quality of work The City of Calgary does,” said Gordon Stewart, Director of Transportation Infrastructure which managed two of the three projects.

“Much of the credit needs to go to the teams of workers on the various projects, and their leaders, for their outstanding work and commitment.”
