ISL Wins ACEC Award of Excellence for Drayton Valley Raw Water Pump Station IPD

November 8, 2022

On October 4, 2022 – On November 4, 2022  The Association of Consulting Engineering Companies of Canada (ACEC) awarded ISL with the Award of Excellence for our work on the Drayton Valley Water Raw Water Pump Station IPD project.

The Town of Drayton Valley’s original water treatment plant was used solely to pump raw water to their new water treatment plant. ISL designed and delivered a new pump station using the Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC30) contract for Integrated Project Delivery, a first for a Canadian municipal infrastructure project. Designing and building a visually unobtrusive pump station on a flood plain carried substantial challenges. This project could only succeed with early collaboration and innovative thinking that challenged traditional methods. This revolutionary approach required leveraging ISL’s experience, ensuring construction informed design and eliminating the preventable adversity often seen in traditional project deliveries.

“Being recognized with an ACEC Award of Excellence is among the highest honours an engineering consultant in Canada can achieve – the award highlights our expertise, dedication, innovative thinking, and professionalism while bonding our team to our clients and communities through challenging project work.”
