ROCHESTER, N.Y., November 13 — Erdman Anthony is pleased to announce that its entry in the American Council of Engineering Companies of New York’s 2019 Engineering Excellence Awards Competition has earned a silver award. The project on the I-81 Southbound and Northbound Bridges over Oneida Lake and the New York State Barge Canal in Brewerton, NY, was submitted in the structural systems category.

The Engineering Excellence Awards are presented to projects that encompass both the public and private sectors in the following categories: studies, research, and consulting services; building/technology systems; structural systems; surveying and mapping technology; environmental; waste and stormwater; water resources; transportation; energy; industrial and manufacturing processes and facilities; and special projects.

Each year, over 60 member firms submit projects that are judged on a rigorous set of criteria, including complexity, innovation, and value to society. These projects are judged by a panel of industry experts, including military and government officials, ACEC national and international leadership, educators from college and university engineering departments, and leadership from other organizations dedicated to the built environment.

ACEC New York will honor 130 projects at the 52nd Annual Engineering Excellence Awards Gala, which will take place at the Hilton Midtown in New York City on April 13, 2019. This event is co-sponsored by the ACEC New York Scholarship Fund, and, in conjunction with the gala, the scholarship program will award more than $50,000 to New York state engineering students.
