Employed by The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Inc. (a Federal Crown Corporation) since 1999, Guy has been on loan to Infrastructure Canada since 2012, where he holds the position of Chief Engineer – Samuel-De Champlain Bridge.

Guy’s career has focused on the design, inspection, evaluation and rehabilitation of bridges. For over 30 years, he has contributed to the inspection and major rehabilitation of several of the Montreal’s important bridges as both consultant and owner. His last 7 years have been devoted to the Samuel De Champlain Bridge, a world-class signature bridge currently under construction.

This presentation will expose some of the key design and construction milestones that have been achieved and will highlight several of the innovative engineering design aspects as well some of the sophisticated construction techniques which were implemented in order to satisfy both the demanding technical requirements and scheduling challenges (in the context of a rapidly deteriorating original bridge) in order to endow Montreal with a highly durable (125-year design life) and elegant structure serving as the premier gateway to Montreal.
