Some of our key projects are listed here.

At RAE, we believe effective project management, cost and schedule controls are critical to successfully delivering a project of any complexity.  RAE subscribes to the internationally recognized Project Management Institute (PMI) approach wherein the successful project addresses the key issues more effectively and efficiently while the projects are completed as per the scope and within the schedule and budget.

A list of key projects that have been successfully delivered to our valuable clients by our project managers, engineers, technicians and other dedicated staff of RAE:


Condition Assessment of Galt Bridge - Hurontario Light Rail Transit Project to the Construction JV/Metrolinx/Region of Peel/City of Mississauga/City of Brampton, Ontario, Canada (In Progress)
Updated Date: 14/11/2021

The Rail Over Hurontario Street Bridge (Galt Bridge) is a slab on "I" girder bridge carries Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) traffic across the Hurontario Street in the City of Mississauga in four (4) continuous span with a total crossing length of 28m and maximum clearance of 4.6m. 

As part of the Hurontario Light-Rail Transit (LRT) project, the northbound and southbound Hurontario LRT tracks will be on either side of the middle pier of the Galt Bridge and no structural modifications to the bridge are expected.  The Galt bridge is expected to be part of a new station to be built in the near future (after the Hurontario LRT project).

RAE is currently performing condition assessment of the Galt Bridge.  As part of this exercise, RAE will also identify potential impacts to the bridge due to the construction and operation of the Hurontario LRT as well as the future station at this location and provide recommendation to the Hurontario LRT Project Team.


Retractable Roof at the AARF Facility, Washington DC, United States (Engineering in Progress)
Updated Date: 12/10/2021

The nation's capital is unique and its population diverse. Older adults make up more than 11 percent of its residents, and that number is only expected to grow as D.C.'s boomers age. Many older adults do not live near Metro stations, the report notes, and seniors in the District are the least likely group to own a car. Compared to the states, D.C. has the highest number of older adults living in multifamily homes. An older adult with a disability lives in more than a third of all age 50-plus households in the city.

As part of facilitating more resources available for its residents, the American Association of Retired Personals (AARP) is upgrading its current facility in the Nation's capital. This work includes many building upgrades including construction of a retractable roof within the existing rotunda on the top (8th) floor of the building located at 601 E St NW, Washington, DC 20004.

RAE's role includes architecture, engineering, City approvals, fabrication, and construction of a fully automated, retractable roof (circular one, similar to the one shown in the picture, provided by ShadeFX) as a turn-key project at the AARP Facility.
    


Retractable Roof at the Historical Canoe Place Inn, Hampton Bays, New York, United States (Engineering & Procurement in Progress)
Updated Date: 21/09/2021

 “There is no property in our hamlet, nor in our town, that has a more storied existence than the Canoe Place Inn,” reads a Facebook post from the Hampton Bays Historical Society.
If the walls of the Canoe Place Inn could talk, which bygone era would they recall the tales? One can’t help but wonder about the decades spent dancing at the Hampton Bays landmark, just west of the Shinnecock Canal on Old Montauk Highway. It is, after all, the oldest inn in America.
We take a look back at some of the building’s highlights over the past few centuries. In the 1600s, a structure on the property was reportedly a trading station. An inn on the property dates back to the 1700s.
In 2018, one of the largest owners of commercial real estate on Long Island hosted a celebratory cake-cutting to mark the rebirth of the iconic venue. The event followed a 12-year approval process and celebrated the commencement of construction to restore the site.

RAE's role includes architecture, engineering, City approvals, fabrication and construction of a fully automated, retractable roof (approximately 2,200 sqft) as a turn-key project at the Historical Canoe Place Inn as part of the Reinventions of the Canoe Place Inn, the oldest Inn in America.

Island Lake Wastewater Treatment Plant - Methanol Pumping System Commissioning , Town of Mono, Ontario, Canada
Updated Date: 27/04/2021

The Island Wastewater Treatment plant has a rated average daily flow capacity of 365 m3/day. The final effluent is discharged into the subsurface Leaching Beds. Sewage from the residential dwellings is collected in a network of sewers and manholes, ultimately leading to the raw sewage pumping station (RSPS). From the RSPS, sewage is pumped into two treatment trains. Each train consists of an aerated equalization tank, a primary settling tank, a Rotating Biological Contractor (RBC) train, a final settling tank, and a sand filter. A portion of the settleable organic and inorganic particulates are removed through primary treatment of sewage. Sodium Bicarbonate and Alum are injected into the primary settling tanks to adjust the wastewater pH and promote coagulation/phosphorus removal respectively. Dissolved organics and phosphorous are removed through the integrated primary settling/RBC and the final sedimentation tank. The effluent from the final settling overflows into the filter feed tank and then is pumped into the sand filters where wastewater is denitrified and high phosphorus removal is obtained. Alum and methanol are injected into the filters’ feed line to promote phosphorus removal and denitrification respectively. The tertiary effluent is discharged into a dosing tank where it is pumped into the subsurface leaching beds system. 

RAE is working with the operating autority to install a grounding system and commission the methanol pumping system required to promote denitrification of the treated effluent.
