Four New England projects earn Engineering Excellence Awards

Stantec-designed Burns Bridge leads with Gold Award

Design firm Stantec was honored with four engineering excellence awards from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) –Massachusetts and New Hampshire chapters. The Engineering Excellence Awards are presented to projects that encompass the public and private sector in a number of categories, including transportation. Stantec was awarded with the following:

The Kenneth F. Burns Memorial Bridge – Gold Award; this award signifies an exceptional degree of innovation, complexity, achievement, and value to the community. Stantec provided engineering services to develop a unique solution for the replacement of Route 9 over Lake Quinsigamond, including full deck post-tensioning and many community-friendly features such as pedestrian overlooks, architectural color lighting and large sail sculptures at the portals. The bridge, which was substantially complete last fall, has quickly become an infrastructure icon for Worcester and Shrewsbury, capturing the old bridge’s grace, but with a modern update of sweeping, sleek steel box deck arches.

The Logan Express Parking Garage and Terminal in Framingham – Bronze Award; Stantec was retained by Massport to provide fast-track design and construction services for a new 1,100-space multi-modal center that houses a 6,000 square foot passenger terminal building and includes provisions for passenger pickup/drop-off, taxi, Logan Express bus and charter bus services within the garage footprint. The design includes ground improvement, two gas-fired snowmelters at roof-level, LED light fixtures, and a custom architectural façade for the terminal building and garage.

The Sagamore Avenue Bridge Replacement in Portsmouth – Outstanding Achievement; Stantec designed the replacement of the 400-foot long, 3-span continuous steel girder historic bridge after the harsh saltwater environment and road salt carryover deteriorated the bridge’s floorbeams and other bridge components. The reconstruction consisted of the approach roadways, demolition, and replacement of the three-span steel superstructure bridge. Stantec performed final design and permitting for the bridge removal and replacement with a similarly configured bridge, in accordance with its historical nature.

The Slayton Hill Road Reconstruction – Category Winner; Slayton Hill Road was one of the hardest hit areas after the City of Lebanon, NH received over five inches of rain within a 24 hour period. Portions of this roadway were completely washed out and non-passible along with public utilities and residential driveways. Stantec led the reconstruction effort to provide a more resilient roadway system, and worked with local residents to preserve the character of this designated scenic roadway while reconstructing driveways and property frontage.

Stantec’s Transportation team has completed thousands of road, bridge, and transit-related projects throughout New England.
