Amec Foster Wheeler Ontario project receives second award

  • Lisgar District project receives its second award
  • Merit Award for Studies and Research from Consulting Engineers of Ontario

Amec Foster Wheeler announces today that its Lisgar District Basement Water Infiltration Investigation Project for the City of Mississauga has received a 2016 Merit Award for Studies and Research from Consulting Engineers of Ontario (CEO). Earlier this year, the Lisgar District project received a Tech Innovation Award from the Ontario Public Works Association.

CEO hosted the 2016 awards gala and handed awards to 14 engineering firms whose projects contributed to improving Ontario’s social, economic and environmental well-being.

Amec Foster Wheeler won the award for its work on identifying the cause of basement flooding in nearly 200 homes in the Lisgar District in the City of Mississauga. The City felt it had a fool-proof servicing system to manage foundation drainage which worked without problems for nearly 20 years. Amec Foster Wheeler was turned to for help and the company’s engineers and hydrogeologists put on their detective caps to solve the mystery of the basement flooding.
