MAR 5, 2013: CMT recently received two top Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) from the Missouri chapter of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC). At a banquet on February 8, CMT received grand awards for the I-70 Interchange – New Mississippi River Bridge project and the Coldwater Wet Weather Storage Facility Tank A project. Both projects have been entered in the national EEA completion, to be awarded later this spring.
CMT prides itself on looking beyond traditional ways of thinking to arrive at innovative and cost-saving solutions. Our number one priority is always client satisfaction, but it’s also an honor when an organization as respected as the ACEC takes note as well,” said Dan Meckes, CMT President
The I-70 Interchange project connects the new Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge to the interstate on the Missouri side of the Mississippi. The interchange is an important piece in alleviating traffic congestion in the area and also in creating a new gateway into the city. CMT led a practical design workshop for the project that reduced budgeted costs by $13.6 million. Greg Law served as project manager.
The Coldwater Storage Facility project provided the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District with a new model for storing stormwater and eliminating sewer overflows during heavy rain events. The on-site storage tank provided over $80 million in savings over traditional methods. The tank features green solutions for maintenance and architectural enhancements. Tim Tappendorf served as project manager.
“Greg Law and Tim Tappendorf did exceptional jobs of communicating and collaborating with our clients, and leading their respective project teams. A lot of hard work went into these projects and the awards attest to that,” Meckes said.
