Warman and Martensville Interchanges Design-Build Project

May 2, 2018 NACITE Luncheon

Presented by Dave Fraser and Andy Heath


NACITE welcomes Dave Fraser and Andy Heath, both of McElhanney. Dave Fraser is a Professional Engineer who specializes in major Design-Build and P3 projects and Andy Heath is the manager of McElhanney’s Infrastructure Division in their Edmonton’s office.

Dave and Andy are going to present on the Warman and Martensville Interchanges Design-Build Project in Saskatchewan, which is the first Design-Build undertaken in Saskatchewan. From a design perspective, while the geometry is straight forward, the prairie landscape adds challenges including traffic management phasing and designing for snow, from clearance to drifting to snow deposition. This presentation will detail these less conventional challenges and how they were solved through the design-build process.

About the speaker:


Dave Fraser is a Professional Engineer, specializing in major Design-Build and P3 projects across Western Canada. He has been with McElhanney since 1976, managing design-build, highway, transit, municipal, and land development projects. He has 46 years of experience in engineering and construction management (including 22 years of design-build /P3 experience) and is familiar with highways, bridges, rail and transit systems, traffic management, storm drainage, urban streets, water supply, and sanitary sewer systems.

Dave undertakes project implementation from feasibility studies through construction management, including such high-profile projects as the Regina Bypass, Warman and Martensville Interchanges outside Saskatoon / Gateway Port Mann / Highway 1, Golden Ears Bridge, Canada Line SkyTrain, Sea to Sky Highway, Vancouver to Surrey Expo SkyTrain, and even the pursuit phase of Edmonton’s Valley Line.

Andy Heath has over 15 years of experience focusing on the functional planning, detailed design and construction management of transportation systems as a lead designer and project manager. Andy currently manages the Infrastructure Division within McElhanney’s Edmonton office, focusing on leading multi-disciplinary projects from concept through delivery. Andy brings experience from across North America (literally as he is originally from Wisconsin and North Carolina) and is never afraid to be hands on in a design or to solve a problem.
