ACEC/MA Announces Pond/Michael Baker International as a Bronze Excellence Award Winner

JACKSONVILLE, FL — The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named Pond/Michael Baker International as a 2021 Bronze Engineering Excellence Award winner for their work on the Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center.

Connections are at the heart of the groundbreaking Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center at LaVilla (JRTC). Designed by the Pond|Michael Baker International joint venture for the Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA), transit-oriented development (TOD) strategies were used to improve transportation, reduce traffic, and spur economic activity in the region. The facility integrates local and regional bus networks, taxis, rental car services, an elevated rail system, and space for future services into one facility. The JRTC features complete-street connections to the LaVilla neighborhood, a grand staircase point of entry, and an elevated urban plaza for mixed-use retail opportunities and scenic views.

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.

“The ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence Awards Competition recognizes engineering achievements that demonstrate the highest degree of merit and ingenuity,” said Dennis J. Baker, President of ACEC/MA and Vice President and Area Manager for WPS. “We celebrate this year’s outstanding engineering achievements, congratulate our winners, and thank them for their contributions to improving the quality of our everyday lives.”
