NORWELL, Mass. - June 26, 2018 - PRLog -- The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named SMMA as a winner of a 2018 Bronze Engineering Excellence Awards for work on the Winchester High School renovation project in Winchester, Massachusetts.

The 2018 Engineering Excellence Awards were announced at the recent ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala with emcees Beth J. Larkin, PE, MBTA Assistant General Manager for Capital Delivery and Housamm ("Sam") H. Sleiman, PE, CCM, MassPort Director of Capital Programs & Environmental Affairs.

SMMA, with offices in Cambridge, was retained by the Education Facilities Planning and Building Committee of Winchester High School to help transform the out-of-place 1970's brutalist building centrally located in a dense, downtown neighborhood with no excess land to construct a new school; the building was in an expansive floodplain with site settlement and contaminated soils and did not reflect the school's top 10 status and National Blue Ribbon credentials.  SMMA faced many challenges with the project, including the need to design for settlement both under and around the building.

"The awards honor this year's most outstanding engineering accomplishments in Massachusetts," said ACEC/MA President Michael J. Scipione, PE President and CEO of Weston & Sampson Engineering, Inc. "They are excellent examples of how engineers create projects that improve our lives and communities. Professional engineers are dedicated to providing quality infrastructure, providing safe and reliable water and energy, and making our buildings safe and energy efficient. We congratulate our winners on their exceptional achievements."
