Group Names Design ‘Excellence’ Awards

December 16, 2004

Four diverse engineering design projects, stretching from Washington, D.C., to the State of Washington, have been tapped for Grand Award honors for Engineering Excellence by the American Council of Engineering Companies of Virginia (ACEC/V). The winners were selected from a field of competing projects by a panel of independent judges. One of the four Grand Award winners will be selected in February to receive ACEC/V’s Pinnacle Award as the top engineering design project in Virginia for the year.

Along with the four Grand Award winners, the judges accorded Honor Awards to two other projects. The projects and firms are: Grand Awards – TranSystems Corporation, Norfolk, VA, full-scale model of an “Efficient Marine Terminal” at the Port of Tacoma, Washington, for the Center for the Commercial Deployment of Transportation Technologies, Long Beach, CA; Hayes, Seay, Mattern & Mattern, Inc., Roanoke, VA, “Work Area 2 and Electrical Upgrade,” for the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Anderson & Associates, Inc., Blacksburg, VA, “The Riverway – Phase I” environmental park along the New River for the City of Radford, VA; and The Louis Berger Group, Richmond, VA, “U.S. Route 58 Danville Bypass,” for the Virginia Department of Transportation, Richmond, VA.

The judges’ Honor Award projects were: Delta Airport Consultants, Inc., Richmond, VA, “Runway Safety Area Improvements” for the Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport in Weyers Cave, VA; and Anderson & Associates, Inc., Blacksburg, VA, “Town Run Utilities Project – Division II” for the City of Winchester, VA.

The awards will be presented during an awards banquet in Richmond on February 3. One of the Grand Award recipients will also be named at that time as the recipient of the Award for Virginia’s Pinnacle of Engineering Excellence.

The member firms of the American Council of Engineering Companies provide a broad range of independent, professional planning and design services to municipalities and governmental agencies, private industry, and individuals. Each year state councils and the national organization recognize the best projects and their designers for design excellence representing a wide spectrum of engineering accomplishments.
