Edmonton-based engineering and design company Stantec Inc. will redesign the West Roxbury Tunnel, a major sewer project in Boston.
The company said Thursday that the project is “the largest and most complex linear infrastructure rehabilitation project ever awarded to the firm.”
The tunnel is nearly four kilometres long and services as many as 125,000 homes and businesses in a dense section of Boston.
The rock tunnel has been corroded over time pushing the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority to put the project in its high priority list.
“This project demonstrates the depth and breadth of our environment practice,” says president and CEO Bob Gomes.
“With the vast resources available to our employees across North America we have the capability to complete larger and more complex projects such as the West Roxbury Tunnel.”
The MWRA is one of the ten largest water and wastewater utilities in the United States
Stantec’s services are offered through approximately 10,000 employees operating out of over 130 locations in North America.
Shares of the company were off two cents to $28.18 on early Thursday trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
