Company in charge of new Langley park and ride wins award

The company that co-ordinated construction of the new Carvolth park and ride at 86 Avenue and 202 Street in Langley brought it in on time and on budget despite a tight construction schedule and problems with soft soil.

The work by CMS Focus Management Services Ltd. of Victoria earned the top award for excellence in construction management and supervision, at the ninth annual Deputy Minister’s Consulting Engineers Awards on Jan. 30.

“The uniqueness on this project was that there was no design when we started, very little, just a concept,” CMS project manager Bob Brown said in a video produced for the awards ceremony.

Brown said his firm had to “juggle” multiple contracts to get the work done by its December deadline.

CMS had the $4.7-million contract to manage and provide supervision services for the construction of two new structures on Highway 1 eastbound and westbound lanes, a roundabout to allow express bus underpass access on and off of Highway 1, and the new park and ride facility in Langley accommodating 669 vehicles.

A government of B.C. press release cites the “very challenging geotechnical conditions” posed by soft soil and praises CMS for meeting the challenge effectively.

“This award highlights the expert supervisory skills of CMS Focus Management Services Ltd. in overseeing a large project which will help commuters get to their destination quickly and easily, by using transit over the new Port Mann Bridge,” said Langley MLA and Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Mary Polak

The $70 million transit improvement project was a partnership between the B.C. government, the government of Canada and TransLink. The Deputy Minister’s Consulting Engineers Awards recognize technical excellence in consulting engineer services that improve transportation infrastructure in B.C.
