New Champlain Bridge Corridor Project receives ENVISIONtm Platinum Award



MONTRÉAL, June 5, 2018 /CNW/ - The Government of Canada believes in the importance of protecting our environment while supporting vital infrastructure projects that promote clean growth, preserve healthy ecosystems and build safe sustainable communities.

The New Champlain Bridge Corridor Project has earned a prestigious Envision Platinum Award from the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) for achieving the highest standards of sustainable development and environmental performance on an infrastructure project.

ENVISIONTM ratings are given to infrastructure initiatives like roads, bridges and transportation stations that excel in sustainable development and environmental performance at every stage of the project, from design to construction and implementation. 

This distinction is the first to be awarded in Quebec for infrastructure on the scale of the new Champlain Bridge, and the first in Canada to be awarded for a bridge project.
