American Structurepoint has much to celebrate this December – we learned that four of our projects are receiving ACEC Indiana Engineering Excellence Awards. Even better, one project received an Honor Award and will go on to compete at the national level. Read on the details.
Noblesville WWTP Phosphorus Removal & Aeration Improvements – Honor Award
The Utility Infrastructure Group’s work on a biological phosphorus removal treatment process for the Noblesville Wastewater Treatment Plant has won the highest award possible from ACEC Indiana. The design also replaced centrifugal blowers and leaking buried air mains with energy-efficient turbo blowers and above-ground stainless steel piping. The project now goes on to compete in January for national recognition as one of the nation’s best. Good luck at the national level!

The Utility Infrastructure scored another win for program management of the $37 million annual stormwater program for the Indianapolis Department of Public Works. We have staff onsite at DPW who plan and implement a stormwater master plan and capital improvement program for Indianapolis for projects such as dams, levees, culverts, and neighborhood stormwater drainage improvement projects.

The Transportation Group provided roadway and bridge design for this major east-west corridor in Terre Haute, Indiana. This phase involved total reconstruction of Margaret Avenue and included a new bridge built over the CSX railroad, alleviated traffic queuing problem at the heavily used railroad crossing.
