Pennoni takes home honors from DAPE and ASCE DE
On Tuesday, September 13, the Delaware Association of Professional Engineers (DAPE) and the Delaware section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) held a dinner event to announce project awards and recognize members, including the newest PEs in the state.
Pennoni received two project awards:
The rehabilitation of the nearly-century old Furness Bridge in Media, PA was awarded the Small Project Award as part of the Outstanding Civil Engineering Award program. The project utilized an innovative bridge-within-a-bridge application, where improvements were made internal to the bridge's structure in order to preserve it. The project also demonstrates the use of other complex analysis techniques, including the use of high-definition laser scanning and Modified Military Experimental Establishment (MXME).
The Washington Street Sidewalk Improvement project in New Castle, DE was awarded the Large Project Award as part of the Outstanding Civil Engineering Award program for its commitment to preserving the aesthetics of historic downtown New Castle, while improving the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists through the creation of a defined multi-modal network through the city.
In addition, Pennoni staff John Mendendorp and Jason Sheridan were recognized for passing their PE exams this past spring.
