SNC-Lavalin on track to build Evergreen

SNC-Lavalin Inc. has been selected to design, build and finance the Evergreen Line Rapid Transit project

The company that built the Canada Line and oversaw the project design and management of SkyTrain has been selected to build the $1.4-billion Evergreen Line, the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure announced today.

SNC-Lavalin Inc. has been selected as the preferred proponent to work with the B.C. government to finalize the agreement to design, build and finance the 11-km line from Burnaby to Coquitlam. The announcement was made two years after the request for qualifications was issued, and months after the proponents were narrowed down to three qualified bidders. The other two short-listed candidates were EL Partners, and Kiewit/Flatiron Evergreen Line.

The SNC-Lavalin team includes:

• SNC-Lavalin Inc.;

• Graham Building Services (a joint venture);

• International Bridge Technologies Inc.;

• Jacobs Associates Canada Corp.;

• Rizzani de Eccher Inc.;

• SELI Canada Inc.;

• SNC-Lavalin Constructors (Pacific) Inc.;

• SNC-Lavalin Constructors (Western) Inc.;

• and MMM Group Ltd.

The job entails building the line from Lougheed Town Centre in Burnaby to Coquitlam, with a combination of elevated and at-grade guideway and a 2 km bored tunnel. Major construction is expected to begin this fall.

Lougheed Town Centre Station will also be expanded and six new stations will be built, with provision for three potential future stations. A vehicle storage building and facilities for integrating transit as well as pedestrian, vehicle and bicycle access will also be built.

Meanwhile, some pre-construction work is being done with the expansion of North Road in Coquitlam, the removal of buildings along Clarke Road and Clarke Street and the relocation of utilities.
