Implementing the Envision Rating System into the Samuel De Champlain Bridge Corridor

This case study captures the lessons learned from implementing Envision to the Samuel de Champlain Bridge Corridor Project in Montreal (Canada). Envision seeks to help decision-makers and project teams to identify sustainable approaches during the planning, design, and construction of civil infrastructure projects. To do so, Envision measures the sustainability of infrastructure projects across 64 criteria organized into five categories.

The Samuel de Champlain Bridge Corridor Project is one of the largest  transportation infrastructure projects in North America. Following the project's contractual and legal obligations and requirements, Envision was used to assess the project in the initial and design stages and to identify opportunities to enhance the project's sustainability footprint.


The project received the Platinum-level award, the highest level of sustainability granted by Envision, thus demonstrating that it delivers a range of environmental, social, and economic benefits to the community. Applying the Envision framework contributed to compensating an estimated 60,600 tons of greenhouse gas emissions and planning, designing, and building the project in a flexible and resilient manner, among many other benefits.
