Project Recognition We're Proud to Share

Being awarded the project is a good start.

Being awarded for our work is a great finish.

During the more than 100 years we've been in business, many have recognized us for our efforts.

We are honored and proud of that recognition.

The American Council of Engineering Companies has honored us with the 2005 Grand Conceptor Award for our work with the South Florida Water Management District to help restore the Everglades. ACEC again honored us with the 2014 Grand Conceptor Award for our work on the Wacker Drive and Congress Parkway Reconstruction project in Chicago.
