Worcester Regional Airport Wins Award

Worcester, MA – The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named HNTB as a silver award winner for Engineering Excellence for their work on the Worcester Regional Airport.

In partnership with the Massachusetts Port Authority, Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, ATC Associates, Green International Affiliates, Nitsch Engineering, and J.F. White Contracting, Jacobs has taken air travel in Central Massachusetts to greater heights. Sitting 1,000 feet in the clouds, the Worcester Regional Airport lacked the landing systems required by most airlines for low-visibility landings, suppressing the Worcester Regional Airport’s ability to host diverse carriers and service options for the traveling public.

Engineering innovation and teamwork turned a once financially and environmentally impossible project into a successful airport expansion that’s attracting new airlines to the region, connecting travelers to national markets, and enhancing the area’s destination appeal. Jacobs has Massachusetts offices in Boston and Bourne.

The 2019 Engineering Excellence Awards were announced at the recent ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala with special guest emcees Jonathan L. Gulliver, highway administrator at MassDOT and Frederick A. Laskey, executive director of MWRA.
