The City of Columbus OSIS Augmentation and Relief Sewer (OARS) project has been selected by the American Society of Civil Engineers as one of five finalists for the association’s 2019 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement award. The project has already received several awards, including the 2018 ACEC Ohio Engineering Excellence Grand Award, the 2018 ACEC National Engineering Excellence Grand Award, and an ENR Midwest Award of Merit as a 2018 Best Project.
The project, along with the four other finalists, will be honored at ASCE’s annual gala next March. The winner will be announced at the end of the event.
Under the direction of lead firm DLZ, EMH&T provided the team with engineering support for access shaft site plans and design, hydraulic modeling for the tunnel design, and improvements to both sanitary and storm sewers in Columbus Berliner Park and the Greenlawn Avenue area. EMH&T also provided survey, easement descriptions, environmental services, PTI acquisition, and maintenance of traffic for the entire deep tunnel project. At project completion, EMH&T provided final site restoration and site improvements for the downtown receiving/construction area to restore the site to a completed condition, including a new parking lot and landscaping.
There’s an easy way to see how we can help. Let’s talk about it.
