The Acheson Rail Facility is located in the Acheson Industrial Area, between Highway 16 and Highway 16A, approximately 4 km west of Edmonton. The scope of the expansion project included the design of new rail lines, roads, and associated storm water infrastructure. The CIMA+ team coordinated the submission of requests to obtain development permits with Parkland County, conducted drawing reviews with CN Rail, and prepared construction drawings and specifications. CIMA+ also worked with environmental consultants to reduce the ecological footprint of the project, and strategized to minimize the impact on surrounding wetlands, as this was a priority for the client.
CIMA+ designed the expansion of rail lines while keeping the environment in mind.
