A-Way: 30 Years Strong

During the construction of the Crosstown, we support a number of social enterprises – businesses that funnel profits towards charitable endeavours. One social enterprise frequently used by our constructor, Crosslinx Transit Solutions, is A-Way Express.

A-Way is a courier company that provides employment for Torontonians with lived experience of mental health issues. Crosslinx employees use A-Way to send materials to different sites and offices. A-Way offers same-day delivery to any location in Toronto. Lire la suite »

Design Drafts – Building Information Modelling

The Design Drafts is a series of articles focusing on the design of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT (ECLRT). This month, the focus is on the use of Building Information Modelling to aid design and construction.
