MMM Group Limited (MMM) was recently recognized at the 2014 Consulting Engineers of Alberta (CEA) Showcase Gala with the Project Management: Award of Merit for our role in the Edmonton International Airport (EIA) – Expansion 2012 project.
Held annually, the CEA Showcase Gala recognizes the best projects in the province, in eight technical, and four business categories.
As one of the most significant recent major airport redevelopments and infrastructure projects in western Canada, the project vision was to develop the EIA into a vital link between local business and residents, and worldwide destinations. The EIA is one of the first airports in the world to target the prestigious green building LEED certification; contributing to the economic and social well-being of Edmonton and northern Alberta.
Involving highly complex engineering design, this expansion project required project management and coordination for a variety of innovative technologies, challenging systems, and extensive technical and legal requirements. MMM provided technical and financial management for the multidisciplinary team, of engineers, architects, vendors, and contractors engaged in the state-of-the-art improvements. A key component of the expansion was the successful implementation of improvements within a live operating airport environment.
The new facilities opened to the travelling public and staff in 2012, within the original time schedule and under the capital cost budget established at the onset in 2008. Both the air terminal building expansion and the office tower achieved LEED Silver certification.
EIA’s Vice President of Operations and Infrastructure, Steve Rumley, recently summarized MMM’s contribution, as follows: “During the last six year period, I have found the MMM team to be very responsive to our needs in supporting our capital works program. Their work is of high quality, always on schedule and they continuously offer innovative solutions that are both cost effective as well as take into full consideration the needs of our many stakeholders.”
