Steel Shots: Flying by Montreal

Arup’s recent projects in Quebec include the Beauharnois Canal Bridge, a one-mile bridge that crosses the Beauharnois Canal and uses more than 10,000 tons of steel. It is one of two twin bridges constructed as part of the $1.5-billion Autoroute 30 project, a new 26-mile highway link intended to bypass Montreal and alleviate traffic congestion.

Arup, a global multidisciplinary engineering and consulting firm, has recently expanded its reach in Canada with a new office in Montreal, Quebec. Active in Canada since 2000 when it opened its Toronto location, Arup has had a presence in Montreal to deliver the design of the recently opened Autoroute 30. The office will be led by Associate Principals Martin Landry, QAA, and Douglas Balmer, and will deliver engineering and consulting services to the Quebec market.


“Our new Montreal office further establishes Arup’s commitment and investment in the Canadian market and increases our ability to provide the highest-quality service to clients in multiple market sectors,” said Andrew McAlpine, principal at Arup. “We are excited to formalize and expand our presence in this vibrant community. We have had a warm welcome here and experienced growing interest in what Arup offers.”
