The Saratoga Economic Development Corp. announced the Luther Forest Technology Campus “roads project” was twice awarded for excellence last month by the American Council of Engineering Companies of New York, according to a Monday, April 18, statement. The awards were presented during the 44th annual Engineering Excellence Awards ceremony held Saturday, March 26, at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.
Creighton Manning Engineering was responsible for traffic engineering, highway and bridge design and construction inspection for the $31.5 million transportation project centered on the GLOBALFOUNDRIES Fab 8 plant. The firm received a Platinum award in the Transportation category for the design of five and a half miles of new roads, more than seven miles of walking trails and four roundabouts. The project was honored by ACEC for its innovation, technical value, social and economic impact, and complexity. Don Adams and Steve Godlewski, engineers with Creighton Manning Engineering, accepted the award on behalf of the project team.
“The creation of the Luther Forest Technology Campus has been enabled by a world class infrastructure system,” said Michael Relyea, president of the LFTC/EDC. “The Creighton Manning team provided the leadership in bringing the entire project team together to deliver a modern infrastructure unmatched in the United States. We are proud to have partnered with the Town of Malta, Rifenberg Construction, NYS Department of Transportation, the Saratoga County Water Authority, National Grid, NYSEG and the Saratoga County Sewer District in bringing this phase of the project to an award-winning finish.”
Creighton Manning Engineering and C.T. Male Associates collaborated on the design of four new bridges on the Luther Forest Technology Campus. The bridges received an ACEC Engineering Excellence Platinum award in the “structural systems” category. Charles Tutunjian of Creighton Manning Engineering was responsible for design of the bridges and Rick Wakeman of C.T. Male Associates was responsible for the geotechnical investigation and design, according to information from the company.
The Luther Forest Technology Campus was also honored as the 2010 Transportation Project of the Year, for projects ranging from $20 million to $40 million by the American Public Works Association (APWA) Capital Branch. Creighton Manning Engineering, the Town of Malta, Town of Stillwater, Luther Forest Technology Campus Economic Development Corporation and Rifenburg Construction were recognized by the Capital Branch of APWA during an award ceremony held in March. The project then successfully competed in the state-wide award competition and won the APWA New York Chapter 2010 Transportation Project of the Year Award. Jon Dawes, Jr., vice president of Luther Forest Technology Campus Economic Development Corporation (LFTC/EDC) accepted the award on behalf of the project team.
“Providing town road access to the Luther Forest Technology Campus and GLOBALFOUNDRIES is just one of the responsibilities the town is addressing as part of the greater team effort toward making the campus a success,” said Malta Town Supervisor Paul Sausville. “The town is pleased to share the honor of the APWA Award. We take pride in our role of sponsoring and contracting for the construction of these roads and trails.”
