OAPC Awards Outstanding Member Service


The Ontario Asphalt Pavement Council (OAPC) awards program celebrates individuals who make a positive difference in the asphalt industry and who are leaders and role models who teach, inspire and encourage the leaders of tomorrow. This year, the OAPC awarded the Honorary Life Membership Award and the King Beamish Excellence Award. 
The Honorary Life Membership Award was awarded posthumously to William (Bill) Graham who died on January 15, 2019. In 1959, he founded Graham Bros. Construction Limited, a large Ontario-based, independent, heavy equipment construction contractor.

Graham Bros. Construction was a founding member of the Ontario Hot Mix Producers Association (OHMPA), predecessor of OAPC, and have been ORBA members for 50 years. Mr. Graham served on the board of the Ontario Road Builders’ Association (ORBA) and in 2010 was inducted into ORBA’s Hall of Fame.

The King Beamish Excellence Award was established to honor King Beamish, who founded KJ Beamish Construction Co Ltd. and who was a respected and valued OHMPA and ORBA member.

This year the honor goes to Christina Wright, a senior environmental scientist and partner at BCX Environmental Consulting. The company specializes in air quality consulting services. Ms. Wright has served tirelessly as vice-chair of OAPC’s Environment Committee since 2016 helping members interpret and implement environmental regulations. She provided invaluable expertise in the development of the council’s Environmental Practices Guide. She has also taken part in key discussions with the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and helped ensure the council’s interests were represented when the ministry was drawing up new legislation.

She is a regular speaker at OAPC events and is known for being able to communicate technical language in plain English. In addition, her contributions to the Environmental Essentials column in ASPHALTopics magazine provide valuable advice to council members.

OAPC congratulates this year’s award winners and thanks them for their dedication and commitment to the association and industry.
