The American Council of Engineering Companies, California (ACEC California) said that Walter P Moore, a civil engineering firm based in San Francisco, was honored with the prestigious Golden State Award for innovative work on the Air Traffic Control Tower and Integrated Facilities Building at San Francisco International Airport.
The modern new tower uses a vertical post-tensioned system, enabling the tower to self-right and ensuring air traffic controllers remain fully operational after a magnitude 7.5 earthquake.
Each year, ACEC California honors engineering firms throughout California with Engineering Excellence Honor and Merit Awards. Of those recipients, ACEC California selects one firm to receive the Golden State Award. This year, twenty-four California firms representing twenty-seven projects were named EEA Award winners. Honor Award winners are eligible to enter the ACEC National Engineering Excellence Awards competition.
ACEC California is a statewide association representing over 950 private consulting engineering and land-surveying firms, dedicated to enhancing the consulting engineering and land surveying professions, protecting the general public and promoting the use of the private sector in the growth and development of California.
