About the entity

AECOM
AECOM became an independent company formed by the merger of five entities. While our official founding was in 1990, many of our predecessor firms had distinguished histories dating back more than 120 years.

AECOM, the world’s trusted infrastructure consulting firm, announced that it has been selected by Metro Vancouver to provide engineering services for the design and construction of the Stoney Creek Trunk Sewer Upgrade project. In this role, AECOM will help to replace the trunk sewer to accommodate the current and future demands for the cities of Burnaby, Coquitlam, and Port Moody. Once complete, the new sewer pipeline will address existing capacity and odor issues while adhering to the latest standards of quality and sustainability.

"The Stoney Creek Trunk Sewer Upgrade project is a critical initiative that will deliver positive impacts for local communities," said Richard Barrett, chief executive of AECOM’s Canada region. "We are excited to bring together the best of our wastewater conveyance expertise to address existing sewerage and drainage challenges and support the needs of the Metro Vancouver region for years to come."

AECOM will provide comprehensive engineering services that cover civil, structural, geotechnical, environmental, hydro-technical, and traffic planning aspects of the design. Its scope of work includes the design of a new sewer between existing manholes at the intersections of North Road and Rathburn Drive, Government Street and Cariboo Road, assessment and implementation of air ventilation and odor control, and assessment of the remaining life and integrity of the existing sewer. The local team of design leads, advisors, environmental professionals, and junior staff will be supplemented by expert knowledge in trenchless technologies, hydraulics, and condition assessment from across AECOM.

“We are proud to partner with Metro Vancouver leveraging our industry-leading water capabilities to deliver this important project,” said Beverley Stinson, chief executive of AECOM’s global Water business. “Built on a foundation of local talent enhanced by a vast global knowledge network, we look forward to developing resilient and cost-effective design solutions for the Stoney Creek Trunk Sewer that best meet their performance requirements.”

The Stoney Creek Trunk Sewer, originally installed in 1959, has become undersized due to substantial regional growth and increased groundwater infiltration due to aging infrastructure. The existing sewer is situated in an environmentally sensitive area and has had operational challenges, further intensified by its location at the bottom of a steep ravine and several direct home service connections. The new sewer pipeline will mitigate these challenges and is expected to contribute to operationally safe, efficient and reliable infrastructure that will be designed for a service life of 100 or more years.
