The American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) of Illinois recently named Plummer Family Park as Judge’s Choice in the category of Special Projects at its 2021 Engineering Excellence Awards. CMT began providing planning services for the new sports park back in 2016, then followed up with engineering and architectural design services beginning in 2018.
Plummer Family Park opened in Edwardsville, IL, in August of 2020 and is already becoming a regional destination for tournaments and traveling athletes. The 83-acre, $12.8 million park includes four baseball/softball diamonds, six multi-purpose fields, 12 pickleball courts, concession stands, restrooms, a shared-use path, and parking for 821 vehicles, including 22 ADA-compliant spaces. Additional ball diamonds, a community park space, and additional parking are planned for a future phase.
In its short time in operation, and despite COVID-19 restrictions, Plummer Family Sports Park has become a point of pride and a popular amenity for the residents of Edwardsville. CMT is proud to have played a part in its creation and grateful to ACEC-IL for this distinguished award recognizing the project’s impact.
