Two engineering received Honor Awards for outstanding design, delivery, function and cost effectiveness for their participation on the following projects:
A. Morton Thomas & Associates and Atkins
AMT and Atkins completed the 10.5 mile New Market Heights portion of the trail running through Henrico and Charles City Counties. This part of the trail contains a 10-foot-wide path with three-foot shoulders. To minimize the project’s footprint, building techniques and supplies were carefully chosen for construction in areas like wetlands and streams, where timber bridges were used for crossing.
Draper Aden Associates
The City of Richmond and Hourigan Construction enlisted Draper Aden Associates for the creation of Stone Brewing’s East Coast Distribution Center. By using Building Information Modelling, DAA was able to model the foundation and framing of the project before beginning construction, allowing for the coordination of mechanical and brewery processing equipment while reducing delivery time of the structure.
