Cheshire, CT – Milone & MacBroom, Inc. of Cheshire was recently awarded top honors at the American Council of Engineering Companies’ (ACEC) National 2018 Engineering Excellence Awards Gala. The firm’s project, the Meriden Green, received one of only 20 Honor Awards of distinction for exceptional engineering achievement.
The project was also awarded the Grand Award, the singular highest honor, at the ACEC-CT Engineering Excellence Awards banquet in January. These distinctions follow Meriden Green being named one of the six new grandest public spaces in America by the Architect’s Newspaper in July 2017.
Milone & MacBroom was the designer of record for the Harbor Brook restoration and new urban flood control park project, providing engineering, landscape architecture, construction administration, and resident engineering services.
After a half-century of recurring flood damage and two decades of design and permitting, the new 14-acre Meriden Green has become a catalyst for the city’s economic revitalization and a significant piece to the flood mitigation strategy. The project has transformed an abandoned retail mall, parking lot, brownfield, and culverted brook into a remarkable, multifunctional, city-central green.
