NOV 23, 2011: Crawford, Murphy & Tilly (CMT) was selected for two awards by the American Council of Engineering Companies – Indiana (ACEC-IN) in their annual Engineering Excellence Awards competition. The Georgia Street Reconstruction Project received an Honor Award, while the Grissom Aeroplex Service Area Wastewater Treatment Plant Improvements earned a Merit Award. Both awards were presented at the ACEC-IN’s annual banquet held in Indianapolis on March 3.
The Georgia Street Reconstruction project transformed a four-lane urban roadway into a two-lane road and event plaza. The project featured a curbless street design, innovative drainage system and many sustainable features. The three-block section of Georgia Street served as Super Bowl Village for this year’s championship football game and is considered a major step forward in Indianapolis’ efforts to revitalize its downtown area to promote economic development and tourism.
A highlight of the Grissom Wastewater Treatment Plant in Peru, Indiana was the a adaptive reuse of existing assets in the design of the new plant. Large existing tanks were converted into a new Vertical Loop Reactor (VLR) system, along with the replacement of old components with more energy efficient options. The plant was completed on schedule and the client gave CMT a rating of nine out of ten on a consultant evaluation review.CMT is grateful for both the recognition from our peers in the Indiana engineering community, and the continued opportunity to serve our clients throughout the state.
