Three Projects Named 2018 ACEC-NY Award Winners

As part of the Westchester County Multi-Facility Residuals and Biosolids Master Plan, a customized modeling tool was developed to allow for rapid modeling of Triple Bottom Line performance for different integration scenarios, many of which utilized state-of-the-art residuals processing technologies. The tool provides cost, carbon footprint, and mass balance metrics, and is adaptable to new facilities and treatment processes.

The Shore Road Reconstruction and Coastal Stabilization project in the historic Douglaston Manor neighborhood of Queens, New York, provided a sustainable, innovative geotechnical engineering solution with a natural landscape.

The New Creek Watershed – Mid-Island Bluebelt project is the first phase of storm sewer buildout for a 2,250 acre watershed. This project integrated existing, degraded urban wetlands to provide stormwater conveyance and treatment in an environmentally sustainable and cost effective manner for the Midland Beach neighborhood of Staten Island. The project resulting in restoring and creating 5.5 acres of wetlands along with natural channels and gray infrastructure conveyance. This project is the first of its kind to use natural wetlands to provide drainage solutions at such a large scale in a tidal area.

(NEW YORK, NY – February 16, 2018) – Three projects, all managed wholly or in joint venture by Hazen and Sawyer, were recently named ACEC-NY Engineering Excellence Award winners.

The Westchester County Multi-Facility Residuals and Biosolids Master Plan was named a Diamond award winner, the Shore Road Reconstruction and Coastal Stabilization was named a Platinum award winner, and Climate Resilient Storm Water Management for the New Creek Watershed was named a Silver award winner.

The Engineering Excellence Awards are presented to projects that encompassed both the public and private sector 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.

These winners will be honored at the Annual Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) Gala, which will take place at the New York Hilton Midtown in Manhattan on April 7, 2018. The winner of the Empire Award — an award given to the highest rated project in New York State — will be announced at the EEA Gala. All Diamond Award projects designed and built in New York State are in contention for the Empire Award.
