ACEC/MA announces Stantec as a 2019 Bronze Award Winner in Engineering Excellence for their work on the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge Over Commonwealth Avenue

BOSTON, MA – JULY 22, 2019 – The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named Stantec as a 2019 bronze award winner for engineering excellence for their work on the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge over Commonwealth Avenue.

The reconstruction of the Tommy Leonard Bridge was completed in one of Boston’s most densely built up sections. The design featured an innovative early construction contract to relocate utilities and utilized precast concrete details and prefabricated bridge units to facilitate rapid bridge construction. Bridge demolition and replacement were completed during a long weekend. Traffic was returned to Massachusetts Avenue one day ahead of schedule. What is perhaps most unique about this project was the recreation of the historic bridge and site using modern, rapid construction techniques. The successful project serves as example approach for future work. An international company, Stantec has Massachusetts offices in Boston, Burlington, Hyannis, Northampton and Quincy.

The 2019 Engineering Excellence Awards were announced at the recent ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala with special guest emcees Jonathan L. Gulliver, Highway Administrator at MassDOT and Frederick A. Laskey, Executive Director of MWRA.

“Each year we gather to celebrate and recognize engineering firms for projects that demonstrate innovation and excellence,” said Michael J. Walsh, PE, President of ACEC/MA and Vice President of CDM Smith. “We congratulate our winners who work tirelessly throughout the year to advance the goals and values of our organization and the industry.”
