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.
WSP, with offices in Boston, was retained by MIT to provide services for the renewal and two-phase renovation of the school's 100-year-old Building 2, home to the Departments of Mathematics and Chemistry. As part of the well-known historic Main Building Group, the renovation is not the only first for this building; for the first time in campus history, a new floor was added to the existing iconic building. Design and engineering features were carefully decided to ensure the building's exterior was minimally altered; all changes resulted in improved energy and therefore a LEED Gold certification from the USGBC.
"The awards honor this year's most outstanding engineering accomplishments in Massachusetts,"
