Manchester, CT – Fuss & O’Neill has been honored with the following awards for excellence in multidisciplinary planning and engineering on multiple projects.
The design team for Six Corners Roundabout in Springfield, Mass. was awarded the first annual Massachusetts Department of Transportation Consultant Innovation Award. Fuss & O’Neil partnered with the City of Springfield to develop intersection improvement to this high-accident intersection.
Fuss & O’Neill was awarded the Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) CT 2022 Blue Ribbon Award for Best in Class: Senior Living for its design and planning for Harbor Chase of Evergreen Walk in South Windsor. Harbor Chase offers luxury assisted living and memory care services that encourage engagement for residents, and was designed with connectivity at its core. The location is adjacent to medical offices, a fitness club, and Evergreen Walk shops, and the memory care unit provides direct access to an enclosed exterior garden, allowing residents to freely walk without the risk of wandering off-site.
The Fuss & O’Neill design team was awarded the ACEC-NH Engineering Excellence Silver Award for their work on the solar array on top of the Manchester Landfill. The landfill had been capped since 1999 and lay dormant for more than 20 years. The City of Manchester, led by the Department of Public Works, constructed a 3.3-megawatt (MW) solar array on top of the landfill to help add energy to the overall grid. The solar array, which is roughly 8,000 panels, produces enough energy to power about 500 homes. The development is the largest solar array in all of New Hampshire.
