BOSTON, CAMBRIDGE : The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named Beals and Thomas as a Finalist for the 2021 Engineering Excellence Award for their work on the Cambridge Crossing.
The Cambridge Crossing Roadway and Infrastructure Project provides the vital street and utility systems necessary to serve the 45-acre mixed-use, transit-oriented development at the intersection of Cambridge, Boston, and Somerville. The Project Team was able to overcome the complex environmental remediation, geotechnical, sewerage, and stormwater challenges to create sustainable, pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly parks and infrastructure that are the central hub of the Cambridge Crossing development. Through the successful coordination between the owner, consultants, contractors, and other stakeholders, the site that was once a former abandoned rail yard, is being transformed into an attractive, new mixed-use neighborhood.
The 2021 Engineering Excellence Awards were recently announced and were celebrated at the virtual ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala. The awards celebrate innovation, ingenuity, and excellence in engineering achievement.
“The ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence Awards Competition recognizes engineering achievements that demonstrate the highest degree of merit and ingenuity,” said Scott A. Miller PE, President of ACEC/MA and Vice President and Regional Vice President for Haley Ward. “We celebrate this year’s outstanding engineering achievements, congratulate our winners and thank them for their contributions to improving the quality of our everyday lives.”
