Gordie Howe International Bridge
Client: Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA)
Location: Windsor, ON
The Canadian and United States Governments have jointly agreed to construct a new bridge for the Windsor-Detroit gateway to provide a “safe, efficient, and secure end-to-end border crossing system.” This bridge will directly connect the Highway 401 in Windsor, Ontario and the Interstate-75 in Detroit, Michigan creating two new ports of entry for both Canada & the United States. Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA), is a Crown Corporation that was formed in liaison between Canada and the United States governments in order to manage regulatory bodies and the multiple stakeholders who are carrying out the early construction works to facilitate the construction of the bridge, as well as, maintain schedule, prepare and manage the DBFM contract, and oversee the operation of the bridge.
PMX was retained to provide project advisory, planning, and scheduling support services as part of the WDBA project team during the transaction stage on this major P3 infrastructure project.

Lower Churchill Project – Phase 1
Client: Nalcor Energy, Muskrat Falls
Location: Newfoundland and Labrador
Project Completion: 2019
Project Value: $11 Billion
The lower Churchill River in Labrador is one of the best undeveloped hydroelectric sources in North America. With a combined capacity of more than 3,000 megawatts, Muskrat Falls and Gull Island will be able to provide 16.7 terawatt hours of electricity a year and, in turn, significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This level of mitigation is equivalent to taking 3.2 million vehicles off the road each year. The Lower Churchill Project will be developed in two phases: first, Muskrat Falls and then Gull Island.
Phase one of the Lower Churchill Project includes an 824 megawatt hydroelectric generating facility located at Muskrat Falls, 500 km of high voltage AC transmission lines, 1,100 km of high voltage DC transmission lines, a 30 km crossing high voltage DC submarine cable, as well as, converters, substations, and related assets.
PMX is providing project management support services for the Muskrat Falls generating station in the areas of construction management, contract administration, and project controls.
