The Royal Alexandra Interprovincial Bridge

The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) through its Professional Advisors, is pleased to announce the constitution of the RAIC Independent Review Panel (IRP) for the Alexandra Bridge Replacement Project.

Following the decision made by the Federal Government to replace this important landmark, and consistent with its mandate of advocacy for design excellence in the built environment, the RAIC was approached to provide professional guidance throughout the elaboration of suitable replacement design solutions. As the only national voice for excellence in the built environment in Canada, including a focus on design excellence, the RAIC continues to partner with the federal government and its agencies in ensuring that important national projects meet the highest possible design standards and incorporates considerations that affect and shape society at large.

The RAIC has assembled through an expression of interest an Independent Review Panel that comprises professionals having expertise in multiple disciplines including but not limited to Indigenous culture and values, heritage preservation, architecture, engineering and urban planning. The RAIC Independent Review Panel will work in close cooperation with the integrated project team of Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) and the National Capital Commission (NCC) to provide its best advice and professional guidance. The Independent Review Panel will provide oversight and ongoing iterative input and feedback to the project team as it develops design solutions. The IRP will review technical aspects and recommend a preferred concept design for subsequent consideration by the National Capital Commission (NCC) Board of Directors.
