Today, The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) announced the 11 projects confirmed in the Canada-wide Material Reuse Competition, a unique initiative which aims at giving a new life to over 400 leftover steel components from the original Champlain Bridge.
JCCBI launched this competition in June 2021 as part of its commitment to minimize the environmental footprint of the Champlain Bridge deconstruction. The submissions were reviewed by a committee of experts from the fields of the circular economy, architecture, visual art, urban planning, and industrial design. The feasibility of the projects was then verified by the JCCBI team.
“This is a very innovative competition, and we are delighted with the variety of recreational, artistic, commemorative and community-based projects that were confirmed. They include unique works created entirely by artists as well as industrial projects that will honour the memory of this important Montreal structure. The participants have shown creativity and innovation, and we look forward to seeing these proposals come to life,” said Sandra Martel, Chief Executive Officer, JCCBI.
The are as follows:
In 2021, the Canada-wide Material Reuse Competition also won a Prix initiatives circulaires presented by Québec circulaire and RECYC-QUÉBEC. This competition was recognized as one of the best circular economy initiatives in Quebec, particularly because it allows citizens and corporations to help JCCBI achieve its sustainable development goals.
