Yentile Farm Recreational Facility
- June 27, 2019
-- The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named Green International Affiliates, Inc. as a Silver award winner for Engineering Excellence for their design of the Yentile Farm Recreational Facility in Wilmington MA.
Green International Affiliates, Inc, headquartered in Westford, MA, transformed abandoned and degraded land into vibrant community space. The Yentile Farm Recreational Facility is a model of restorative sustainability. Green International Affiliates, Inc.'s design successfully implements the Town of Wilmington's vision of having a nature-themed sustainable park with an extensive program of active and passive recreational opportunities. By limiting development to just nine acres on the twenty-acre site, the integrity of the natural landscape remains. This project provides a unique place for people of all ages to enjoy the outdoor activities, while protecting and enhancing the community's natural resources and wildlife habitat.
The 2019 Engineering Excellence Awards were announced at the recent ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala with special guest emcees Jonathan L. Gulliver, Highway Administrator at MassDOT and Frederick A. Laskey, Executive Director of MWRA.
"Each year we gather to celebrate and recognize engineering firms for projects that demonstrate innovation and excellence,"
said Michael J. Walsh, PE, President of ACEC/MA and Vice President of CDM Smith. "We congratulate our winners who work tirelessly throughout the year to advance the goals and values of our organization and the industry."
