Event description

Description

The December meeting of the ITE Manitoba Section will be held on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 starting at 12 noon at the Masonic Temple, 420 Corydon Avenue (at Confusion Corner).

Our presenters this month are Mark Vogt from WSP and James Hudson from HTFC.

Mark has worked as a Transportation EIT at WSP (formerly MMM) since completing his graduate studies at the University of Manitoba in 2015. He has been involved in design and contract administration predominantly within Winnipeg’s Exchange District, focusing on the alteration of the existing right of way to enhance the pedestrian environment. Most recently, Mark has completed projects on Lily Street, John Hirsch Place, and Pacific Avenue and is currently working on James Avenue to be completed in 2018.

James is a senior landscape architect at HTFC with a growing portfolio of urban design and streetscape projects in the City of Winnipeg and beyond. Recent local experience includes the North East Exchange District Engineering Study, and various projects within the East Exchange including the Elgin shared pedestrian vehicle laneway, Market, Bertha, Rorie and Lily streetscapes and the John Hirsch 'Woonerf'.

The presentation will provide an overview of the Northeast Exchange Study and the projects that have been completed to date specifically focusing on Manitoba’s first “Woonerf” street, John Hirsch Place. The presentation will provide insight into the challenges and successes of integrating landscaping and streetscaping with traditional roadworks projects to create unique spaces for pedestrians and vehicles that blends with the surrounding land use.

The luncheon will also include a short AGM to sum up the 2017 year, including the mid-term election of a new member to the ITE Manitoba Section Executive Committee for the 2017/2018 term.

Please note that the price of the luncheon is $25.00 for members and friends and $15.00 for students. Registration and online payment MUST be completed at least one week in advance (by December 5).

Hope to see you there!
