Port Mann Bridge / Highway 1 Project

  • As part of the H5M joint venture team, provided geomatics support to the design-build team responsible for the project
  • Primary responsibility was the topographic survey of 38-km of Highway 1 leading into Vancouver
  • Due to traffic restrictions, the survey could not be carried out by conventional means, so cutting-edge technology – namely Leica’s HDS Laser Scanner, TPS 1200 SmartStation, and GPS 1200 – was used so the survey crews did not have to venture into traffic and were able to complete the topographic survey safely
