FEB 12, 2013: Crawford, Murphy & Tilly (CMT) received Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) from ACEC organizations in Illinois, Missouri and Ohio. The firm collected a total of four awards in the 2013 competition in the categories of transportation and waste & storm water.
The Fassnight Creek Waterway Improvements project was awarded a Grand Award from ACEC-Missouri. The project alleviated flooding conditions on roadways in and nearby a popular park in Springfield, Missouri, while retaining the park’s historic elements and enhancing recreational experiences available to visitors. A value engineering solution was provided that cut 50 percent off of the cost of replacing three roadway bridges in the park.
In Ohio, CMT was honored for their work on the Election House Road Relocation at Fairfield County Airport in Lancaster, Ohio. The project allowed the airport to extend its runway and accommodate a wider range of corporate aircraft, a significant economic development for the county. This long-sought after project was kick-started when CMT was brought aboard as consultant, which they successfully executed to provide the client with a quick return on their investment.
CMT engineers in Illinois were given a Merit Award for their efforts on the $50M Repair Runway 06-24 project at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey. The addition of hardened overruns resulted in a new military design standard for lighting, marking and signage that can be applied at other military airfields. A wide-range of pavement rehabilitation methods were used to maximize the re-use of pavement and reduce costs.
ACEC Illinois also selected the Spring Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant for an EEA award. With a peak flow of 80 MGD, the new plant process features vertical loop activated sludge reactors, UV disinfection, and one of the largest biological nutrient removal facilities in Midwest. The project features state-of-the-art systems integration designed for the fully automated facility that replaces the original plant built in 1928.
CMT would like to congratulate the project managers and all of the employees whose hard work and ingenuity resulted in engineering excellence for our clients.
