2014 Grand Award winners Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon and LDA Engineering

Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon, Inc. 

(Beaver Creek WWTP Decommissioning - Environmental Category)
The Beaver Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant Decommissioning was a financial, social, and environmental stewardship success story. Over 16,500 tons of concrete (enough to lay 28 miles of sidewalk), 425 tons of steel (equivalent to 38 school buses), and 300 additional tons of debris were recycled. One construction dumpster was landfilled and 720 construction dumpsters of material were recycled. The construction crew worked seven days a week, 12 hour days, to finish 109 days ahead of schedule and at a net cost of only $74,700 after recycling efforts. The project resulted in a clean, 42.5-acre site for redevelopment in Dothan, Alabama.

LDA Engineering 

(Spring Creek 1A: Horizontal Directional Drilling - Small Projects Category)
LDA was selected to provide professional services to the City of Morristown to develop plans and specifications for a troubled section of sanitary sewer that needed rehabilitation. The project involved the rehabilitation of a line adjacent to Stubbelfield Creek, passing narrowly under a warehouse with foundation issues to a manhole located inside the fully functioning warehouse. This project was unique, because typical rehabilitation methods could not meet all of the design constraints, and horizontal directional drilling was used to replace the 15-inch gravity sewer pipe. Services included design, construction administration, resident president representation, and coordination with City representatives.
