The Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) recognized the World Trade Center team, including Louis Berger staff, as Persons of the Year.

The CMAA award honors those who represent noteworthy achievement in construction management.
Following the tragic attacks of September 11, 2001, Louis Berger was selected by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to serve as program manager of the first phase of the World Trade Center (WTC) site redevelopment. Following the 2004 completion of the first phase of restoration, Louis Berger was awarded a second contract to manage the construction of a new Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) terminal, the WTC Memorial and Museum, and One World Trade Center, the tallest skyscraper in the United States.
