The Gordie Howe International Bridge project has received yet more accolades – this time for its design and innovation. 

At the 2021 CanBIM Innovation Spotlight Awards, AECOM, as the design lead in Bridging North America’s Design-Build team, was recognized with an unprecedented three awards for their work on the Gordie Howe International Bridge project, including the Design & Engineering Award, the Global Envoy Award and the Best in Innovation honour.
