The American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA) has selected Erdman Anthony for its 2020 Sustainable Practices Recognition Award. The national honor recognizes an organization or team that demonstrates leadership in sustainable and resilient design and construction practices that consider societal, environmental, and economic factors (the triple bottom line) for prudent infrastructure development.
In the award notification, ACPA applauded Erdman Anthony’s civil team in West Palm Beach, Florida, which is led by Dana Gillette, PE, PSM, LEED AP, for choosing to use concrete pavement for neighborhood improvements on Singer Island in Riviera Beach:
“Replacing asphalt with concrete pavement during a major utility upgrade showed forethought on your part by putting into place a pavement that will provide a resilient structure, even under future king-tide conditions. Such decisions are a model for others, and for progress in thoughtful, proactive construction of more resilient infrastructure.”
Erdman Anthony’s solution, which has reduced the impacts of sea-level rise on Yacht Harbor Manor’s low-lying roads, was just one aspect of the firm’s designs for the intracoastal community’s planned infrastructure upgrades.
The award was presented during a virtual ceremony held Dec. 3, 2020.
