October 27, 2022 WPE Strikes Gold at 2022 VRCA Awards of Excellence
EDMONTON VALLEY LINE LRT TAKES TOP HONOURS IN THE OVER $8M Category
Western Pacific Enterprises (WPE) won a Gold Award from the Vancouver Regional Construction Association (VRCA) this week.
WPE’s Vice President Tom Butterfield, the project sponsor, and Project Manager Brittany Bailey accepted the honour for the Edmonton Valley Line LRT project at the 2022 Awards of Excellence ceremony.
As the electrical contractor chosen for the light rail project, WPE provided all labour and equipment, and managed the installation of the entire electrical system including Overhead Catenary System, substations, fibre and communication, station communications, train control and overhead wires for the 13-km line.
With WPE’s leadership and members of IBEW 424, WPE was able to complete the electrical scope of work in August 2021 even with the accelerated schedule.
WPE earned two additional awards at the ceremony: a Silver Award of Excellence for the Trans Mountain Power Interconnection Infrastructure Contractor (PIIC) project (General Contractor over $50M) and Superior Safety Record honours.
