Presenter: Linda Meindersma, P.Eng.Linda Meindersma, P.Eng. is a Structural Engineer with CH2M HILL, currently serving as the Bridge Section Manager and the Utilities and Railway Manger on behalf of Transportation Investment Corporation, the Crown corporation responsible for the Port Mann/Highway 1 (PMH1) Improvement Project.

In this role, she has overseen the construction of the new Port Mann Bridge and the dismantling of the original Port Mann Bridge. Demolition and
de-construction of the old bridge is technical and complex work, and just as big an engineering challenge as building the bridge in the first place.

After graduating from the University of Alberta in 2004, prior to the PMH1 project, Linda gained construction management experience serving in a number of roles for TransLink’s Golden Ears Bridge Project.

The Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement Project (PMH1)  not only includes construction of a new Port Mann Bridge, widening the highway, upgrading interchanges and improving access and safety on Highway 1, it also includes the deconstruction of the original Port Mann Bridge. Demolition and de-construction of the old PMB requires detailed engineering and de-construction methods to succeed. The presentation will highlight the work scope, demolition staging and activities, describe methods utilized for the demolition operations and identify environmental and external constraints.
