ACEC/MA Announces Woodard as 2019 Bronze Award Winner

QUINCY and BOSTON, MA, Aug 20, 2019 – The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named Woodard & Curran, Inc. a 2019 bronze award winner for engineering excellence for their work on the Hancock Adams Common in Quincy.

Hancock Adams Common is a vibrant new urban public park showcasing Quincy’s significance in American history. Completion of the more than $20 million project required relocation of a four-lane street and coordination of dozens of stakeholders and project consultants. Though only recently dedicated, the Common already sees significant use by both residents and visitors and is a major factor drawing new development to the city’s downtown. Quincy’s Mayor Thomas Koch said the Common’s dedication ceremony represented a great day for the city and it is a point of pride for all involved. Woodard & Curran, Inc. has Massachusetts offices in Andover, Dedham and Northampton.

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.”
