Charleston, S.C., Office Wins National ACEC Award

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Terracon’s Charleston, S.C., office won a 2011 ACEC National Recognition Award in the Engineering Excellence Awards Competition for work on the Morris Island Lighthouse Stabilization Project. The National Recognition Award is a prestigious distinction honoring projects that demonstrate exceptional achievement in engineering. The project was in the top six locally selected by judges, which led them to submit on a national level. For the project, the Charleston office designed the pile system using the findings of our geotechnical investigation and investigation of the existing onsite foundation. Terracon also provided environmental support, added tilt monitors at foundation level, installed inclinometers to monitor deep soil movements, performed general QA of the construction process, and developed and implemented pile design parameters from the results of the pile load test.
