Louis Berger, as part of a joint venture with Eastman and Clarke Canton Hintz, received the 2016 Engineering Excellence Honor Award in the small project category from the New Jersey chapter of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) for work on the Hoboken Green Infrastructure Plan.
Developed from February to June 2014, the Hoboken Green Infrastructure Plan updates the city’s outdated stormwater management plan to build a more resilient community. In response to local challenges with heavy precipitation and flooding, the new plan will provide a city-wide green infrastructure framework to improve transit accessibility and public health.
The ACEC Engineering Excellence Awards celebrate the most outstanding project achievements in the field of engineering around the world. Projects are judged based on originality, innovation, value to the public and the engineering profession, complexity, social and economic considerations, sustainability, and exceeding client needs.
