INNOVATION July-August 2015

2014 ¢


Anvil Centre & Office Tower In 2011 the City of New Westminster broke ground on the development of a project that would help to revitalize the downtown as well as establish a new conference destination in Metro Vancouver. The result was the Anvil Centre and office tower, completed in September 2014. This facility, designed to LEED ® Gold standards, has many unique features including curved, retractable theatre seating that is the first of its kind in North America. Under the leadership of Pivotal Projects, electrical and mechanical energy savings were incorporated into the building design by the consultant team. Consultant team: Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership, HCMA Architecture + Design, Public Architecture + Communication, AME Consulting Group, S+A Falcon Engineering, Glotman Simpson Consulting Engineers, McElhanney Consulting Services, and Gage-Babcock.

Seaspan Shipyards In 2011, the Government of Canada formed a partnership with Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards to build Non-Combat vessels for the Royal Canadian Navy and Canadian Coast Guard. Vancouver Shipyards will build up to 17 vessels worth $7.3 billion at its North Vancouver facilities. To support this initiative, Seaspan undertook a privately-funded Shipyard Modernization Project. SNC-Lavalin acting as the Owner’s Representative provided Project management, Construction Management and Safety Management services during the design and construction of facilities and related infrastructure. Construction was completed in late 2014, under budget and with zero lost time injuries. Over the next 20 years, Seaspan’s NSPS Non-Combat build package will create 5,000 direct, indirect and induced jobs and produce almost $500 million per year in GDP for BC’s economy. Client: Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards. Management team: Tom Tasaka, P.Eng., project director; Nick Vandervelden, P.Eng., project manager; Brad Hayter P.Eng., construction manager; Conrad Lehane, EIT, project engineer; Chris Koop, P.Eng., project engineer; Sepehr Rad.
