ACEC/MA Announces AECOM as a 2021 Engineering Bronze Excellence Award Winner

The award is for their work on the Forest Hills Canopy Replacement

JAMAICA PLAIN, Mass. - BostonChron -- The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named AECOM as a 2021 Bronze Engineering Excellence Award winner for their work on the MBTA's Forest Hills Station Canopy Replacement located in Jamaica Plain, MA.

The Forest Hills Station Canopies are an example of architecture and structural design working as one. The fresh, clean sleek canopy shapes are functional and inviting to the riding public. They blend into the neighborhood without detracting from the iconic adjacent existing station.

The structural design utilizes curved pipes in a way that efficiently handles the design loads while detailed for construction simplicity. The translucent panels provide natural light to the covered area below without exceeding the structural load design of the varied existing foundation support types.

The 2021 Engineering Excellence Awards were recently announced and will be celebrated at the virtual ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala. The awards celebrate innovation, ingenuity, and excellence in engineering achievement
