A couple of local engineering firms have received awards of excellence from the American Council of Engineering Companies of California.


Each year the council unveils its prestigious Engineering Excellence Awards. This year 21 California firms representing 38 projects were named either Honor or Merit winners.

Cornerstone Structural Engineering Group, Inc. of Fresno received an Honor Award for its work on the Healdsburg Avenue Bridge over the Russian River in the Sonoma County town of Healdsburg.

Cornerstone’s San Francisco office also received a Merit Award for its work on Sylvester Greenwood Academy + Leadership Public Schools in Richmond.

Also taking a Merit Award is Provost & Pritchard Consulting Group of Fresno for its work on the Packwood Creek Water Conservation Project in Visalia.

“Engineering and land surveying firms excel at serving California communities through extraordinary and innovative design in order to solve real-world problems,” said Brad Diede, executive director of ACEC California. “This year’s award winners were no exception – from providing critical clean water infrastructure to more efficient transportation improvement projects and world-class facilities – ACEC members are moving California forward.”

An awards dinner, which is a fundraiser for the ACEC California Scholarship Foundation 501(c)3,  will be held in San Francisco on Feb. 2, 2017, and Honor Award winning projects will have photographic panels on display at the Capitol, outside of the Governor’s office, in early 2017.

The winner of the Golden State award, signifying the best overall project, will be announced at the awards dinner.
