Sebastien has worked for Arup for 5 years now. He graduated in 2017 from Polytechnique de Montreal with a Master’s Degree in Project Management for the Construction Industry.

He has helped on the construction and the design of multiple bridges on the New Turcot Interchange project and followed the New Champlain bridge from the reference design phase to its construction. His most important involvement in bridges design has been the new Kâhasinîskâk footbridge in Edmonton.

The Kâhasinîskâk footbridge will open soon near Downtown Edmonton. The 60-metre-long through bridge is part of the new Valley Line Light Rail Transit. On each side of the orthotropic slab, two box girders feature weathering steel; their variable height helps improving the dynamic performance of the structure as well as the visual quality of the bridge. Still, due to stringent vibration requirements, the bridge had to be fixed at one abutment. A parametric optimization helped managing the complex geometry of the signature bridge, and the automation of the design process facilitated BIM integration.
