A Special Section
Magnusson Klemencic Associates is the top winner in the American Council of Engineering Companies of Washington's annual Engineering Excellence Awards program. The firm took home the top honor — the Platinum Award — for its design of the Chase Center in San Francisco.
Sponsored by ACEC's Washington state chapter, the awards program recognizes projects that represent a wide range of engineering achievements and which demonstrate the highest degree of skill and ingenuity.
Fifteen projects were honored in this year's program. The top national awards will go on to compete in the ACEC national competition in Washington, D.C., in April.
Project entries were evaluated by a five-judge panel: Kathy Robertson, engineer emeritus at Pickets Engineering; Bob Axley, engineer emeritus at Wood Harbinger; Supriya Kelkar, principal architect at Sound Transit; Steve Johnston, engineer emeritus at Landau Associates; and Benjamin Minnick, construction editor at the Daily Journal of Commerce.
ACEC Washington is a professional trade association representing consulting engineering, land surveying and affiliated scientific and planning firms statewide.
