The 2017 Engineering Excellence Awards were announced at the recent ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala with emcees Carol Gladstone, Commissioner of the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance and Commissioner Leo Roy of the Department of Conservation and Recreation.
City Point Partners and its Team – Epstein Joslin Architects, Green International Affiliates, Inc., and Dewberry – were engaged by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to review the applications for a gaming license for three resort casinos and one slot parlor. The Team analyzed the responses provided by the applicants under the sections Building and Site Design and Mitigation, and advised the individual Commissioner responsible for each section.

“The winning projects exemplify ingenuity and professionalism and represent the breadth of engineering’s contribution to our everyday lives,” said ACEC/MA President Mark S. Bartlett PE, Senior Associate at Stantec, Inc. “They are outstanding examples of how engineers connect communities, provide safe and reliable water and energy, and make our buildings safe and efficient. The professional engineers and their colleagues at our member firms are dedicated to working on quality infrastructure, which wouldn’t otherwise exist. These outstanding projects are but a few examples of the quality work designed by Massachusetts engineering firms.”
