QUINCY AND BOSTON, MA – AUGUST 14, 2019, – The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named Tighe & Bond, Inc. a 2019 bronze award winner for engineering excellence for their Coastal Structures Rehabilitation Emergency Response to Storm Riley.

When Storm Riley struck the northeast, the City of Quincy engaged Tighe & Bond to provide engineering services to assess storm damage, design repairs, procure contractors, and oversee construction. Tighe & Bond worked with city staff, to plan, design, and help implement $1.2M

The project repaired essential coastal structures, which protect the public from future storm damage, associated health, safety, and environmental hazards, and prevent destruction of public and private property. The work serves as inspiration for engineers faced with developing efficient

response programs for future emergencies. Tighe & Bond, Inc. has Massachusetts offices in Westfield, Worcester, Westwood and Pocasset.

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.
