The American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) of New York announced that Erdman Anthony will receive a Silver Award at the 2017 Engineering Excellence Awards. The firm will be recognized in the category of water resources for its work on a large water transmission main and valve rehabilitation project in Buffalo.
The Engineering Excellence Awards are presented to projects that encompass both the public- and private-sectors in the following categories: studies, research, and consulting services; building/technology systems; structural systems; surveying and mapping technology; environmental; waste and storm water; water resources; transportation; energy; industrial and manufacturing processes and facilities; and special projects.
All winners will be honored at the 50th Annual Engineering Excellence Awards Gala, which will take place at the Hilton Midtown in New York City on April 1, 2017. This event is co-sponsored by the ACEC New York Scholarship Fund, and, in conjunction with the gala, ACEC’s scholarship program will award more than $50,000 to New York state engineering students.
For its award-winning project, Erdman Anthony was retained by the City of Buffalo’s Department of Public Works, Parks and Streets’ Division of Water and the Buffalo Water Board to complete the preliminary investigations, design, construction administration, and construction inspection for the Elmwood Avenue Transmission Main/Large Valves II project.
Each year, over 60 member firms submit projects to ACEC New York, that are judged by a panel of industry experts, on complexity, innovation, and value to society. Awards are assigned one of four levels (in ascending order): Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. The top-rated Diamond Award project that is designed and built entirely within New York state will earn the Empire Award, which will be announced during the gala.
