PEO Ottawa Chapter

New Members Certificate Presentation Ceremony

The Ottawa Chapter of PEO will be hosting the summer installment of the New Member's Certificate Ceremony on Thursday November 30, 2017 at the RA Center, Clark Hall (west wing).  This ceremony is open to the general membership. 

The topic of the evening will be:  Design and Construction of the Sir Ambrose Shea Vertical Lift Bridge in Placentia Newfoundland and Labrador.  This bridge was built as a replacement to an aging structure ravaged by its coastal environment, and successfully connects adjacent communities in the town of Placentia while serving both vehicular and boat traffic. It increases reliability for vehicles while minimizing navigational restrictions for boats accessing fertile crab and lobster fishing grounds. An aesthetically pleasing structure celebrates the community’s heritage through architecture that reflects the region’s seafaring culture. A robust three-span structure, the bridge has a center vertical-lift span flanked by two simple fixed-girder spans. The 3D truss tower shape resembles sails, and each tower component is connected by a 3D exoskeleton truss that shelters the lift-span machinery. The new bridge was designed to be durable, efficient, and reliable, and was constructed adjacent to the existing bridge in order to minimize disruption to the local fishing boats and road traffic during construction. This innovative, more dependable Sir Ambrose Shea Lift Bridge has already begun to provide positive economic and social change for Placentia.

The keynote speaker for the evening will be Jack Ajrab. M.Sc., P.Eng.  Jack is a Principal Engineer at Parsons Ottawa Office, with 21 years’ experience in structural, bridge engineering and project management, including extensive involvement with bridge construction and rehabilitation contracts. His experience includes project management, structural design and rehabilitation of inspections, conceptual and detailed design of bridges and preparation of tender documents, and construction management. 

You can order your ticket using this Eventbrite link:  Please register under prompt #4 for General PEO members.  Registrations will close Friday November 24 at 11:59pm.
