PENNSYLVANIA — The American Council of Engineering Companies of Pennsylvania (ACEC/PA) recently honored engineering firms from across the commonwealth at the organization’s annual Diamond Awards for Engineering Excellence.
These award-winning projects combine important safety measures, impressive engineering and spectacular designs. From outstanding plans to exceptional execution, the honored teams and projects demonstrate the hard work, skill and dedication of ACEC/PA members and put their expertise on full display.
“Accomplished engineering firms from across the commonwealth submitted entries for design, safety and engineering projects aimed at building better, stronger communities,” said Roseline Bougher, president of ACEC/PA’s board of directors. “The selection process was difficult, but we believe these 12 awards and special honors represent the very best of Pennsylvania’s engineering consulting industry. We take great pride in watching our member firms bring these critical projects to fruition, often in the face of tough obstacles along the way. It has been so exciting to see these firms push themselves to achieve such fantastic results for their clients and truly work to create a better Pennsylvania. We are honored to celebrate them with these awards.”
This year’s winners created needed facilities, improved upon and strengthened infrastructure, increased public safety, worked collaboratively with important clients, and remained conscious of their environmental impacts. The winning projects, as well as the firms involved, are truly impressive feats of engineering success. A Diamond Award for Engineering Excellence is a tribute to not only the winning project and its engineering firm, but also to the clients, owners, sub-consultants, contractors and everyone who helped these projects become a reality.
