2016 Grand Award Winners - HDR|ICA Engineering & A2H, Inc.

HDR|ICA Engineering

(HOI Pedestrian Bridge Mission Trip, San Esteban, Honduras – Small Projects)

In San Esteban Honduras, the Hope Middle School and Aldersgate Elementary School are located on each side of a busy highway and provide academic and athletic opportunities to over thirty villages. Recent roadway improvements have resulted in a higher volume of traffic, and as a result serious pedestrian crashes. HDR | ICA and Lipscomb University partnered together to design and construct a single span Pratt truss pedestrian bridge to provide safe crossing for students and their families.       HDR | ICA provided professional engineering leadership and financial support in order for this project to become a reality.

A2H, Inc.

(Pacific Industries Manufacturing Facility, Jackson, TN – Industrial and Manufacturing Processes, Facilities)

A2H Engineers, Architects, Planners managed the engineering and architecture design for the new manufacturing facility in Jackson, Tennessee for the Japanese-based car parts manufacturer Pacific Industries. Due to growing product demands, Pacific required the plant to be fully operational by June 2015, allowing A2H only six weeks to complete construction documents and permits. The project engineers maintained around-the-clock communication with the Owner in Japan and with each of the other engineering design disciplines in-house. As a result, A2H delivered the project ahead of the accelerated schedule, exceeding Pacific Industries’ needs and expectations.
