The Benchmark Senior Living project

Boston – The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named Allen & Major Associates, Inc., headquartered in Woburn, as a winner of three 2017 Bronze Engineering Excellence Awards for work on projects at Benchmark Senior Living in Woburn, Brightview Canton, and The Point in Littleton.

The Benchmark at Woburn team resolved significant permitting, storm water, traffic, and environmental challenges by utilizing innovative applications of common construction materials, new techniques in adaptive traffic control, and terraced landscape walls to minimize disturbance into riverfront areas.

Brightview Canton, a 160-unit community for seniors, turned a mostly barren and impervious site into an environmentally responsible and modern development. Innovative solutions to complex obstacles included bio retention swales around the entire developed area to capture, treat, and recharge storm water runoff and planting low-nutrient grassland to provide habitat.

The Point Project in Littleton designed and engineered a 500,000sf mixed-use development on 90 acres adjacent to Route 495. The Point showcases the ability of a large-scale development to occur adjacent to priority environmental resource areas without risk of degradation.

The 2017 Engineering Excellence Awards were announced at the recent ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala with emcees Carol Gladstone, Commissioner of the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance and Commissioner Leo Roy of the Department of Conservation and Recreation.

“The winning projects exemplify ingenuity and professionalism and represent the breadth of engineering’s contribution to our everyday lives,” said ACEC/MA President Mark S. Bartlett PE, Senior Associate at Stantec, Inc. “They are outstanding examples of how engineers connect communities, provide safe and reliable water and energy, and make our buildings safe and efficient. The professional engineers and their colleagues at our member firms are dedicated to working on quality infrastructure, which wouldn’t otherwise exist. These outstanding projects are but a few examples of the quality work designed by Massachusetts engineering firms.”
