Walker Road Corridor Reconstruction Phase 1 and Trunk Storm Sewer Outlet
This project includes the 2100 diameter outlet sewer to the Grand Marais Drain, in addition to the 5 lane rigid pavement construction of Walker Road in the City of Windsor, 300mm diameter watermain replacement and trunk storm sewer installation from Digby Avenue to Foster Avenue and 300m of underground hydro duct structure.

Casino Windsor Expansion
The Casino Windsor expansion project included a new hotel tower, 100,000 square foot convention centre and 5,000 seat theatre. The works also included a valet tunnel under and a sky-link crossing over McDougall Avenue linking the new West Block to the existing North Block.

Erie Street BIA Streetscape and Rehabilitation Works Phase 1A
RC Spencer Associates Inc. was the engineering consultant for this LEED Neighbourhood Streetscape and Rehabilitation Works project in the City of Windsor. The work included design, tendering, contract administration and inspection of streetscape improvements (patios, continuous boardwalk, bulb-outs at all intersections for traffic calming, trees and Parent Avenue roundabout), 100 year old feeder watermain replacement, road re-surfacing and reconstruction, sewer rehabilitation and trunk storm sewers installation.
Riverside Drive Vista Phase 1
RC Spencer Associates Inc. was the successful proponent in securing this project for the City of Windsor through the RFP process. The design was completed up to tender call for the road reconstruction, streetlighting, streetscape improvements, watermains and sewer replacement on Riverside Drive East from Lauzon Road to Riverdale Avenue. This includes several traffic calming and safety measures such as two primary nodes and a single secondary node along with two on-road bike lanes. Stage 1 construction has recently been completed as shown.
Ambassador Bridge Plaza Redevelopment
This project involved the reconstruction of the entire Bridge Plaza, including the construction of the secondary inspection facility, the duty free shop as well as the entire staging area including inspection and toll booths. This project was completed in numerous phases as the main challenge of this project was in maintaining the flow of both commercial and passenger vehicles while completely reconfiguring all access, egress and staging areas.
Windsor/Detroit Tunnel Plaza
This project involved the redevelopment of the Windsor Plaza of the Windsor/Detroit Tunnel international border crossing. This also included the realignment and re-construction of Wyandotte Street from Ouellette Avenue to Windsor Avenue and Goyeau Street from Park Street to Wyandotte Street. This multi-laned rigid pavement was reconstructed while maintaining the flow of both commercial and passenger vehicles. This project was further compounded by the amount and complexity of subgrade infrastructure in this City core area.
