The National Veterans Memorial and Museum in downtown Columbus has received the Award of Merit from Engineering News-Record (ENR) Midwest Region in the Cultural/Worship category. Submitted by Turner Construction, the projects’ contractor, the museum was one of 97 projects submitted this year. ENR’s panel of judges carefully whittled the list down to just 35 winning entries. EMH&T was proud to provide a range of professional planning, engineering, and land surveying services as part of this outstanding project team, which included Allied Works Architects of Portland, Oregon, as well as OLIN Landscape Architects and Turner Construction, who proudly included many U.S. veterans on the project’s construction team.
But the project’s recognition doesn’t end there, as the Columbus Landmarks Foundation, a local organization whose mission it is to “advocate for, promote, and preserve Columbus landmarks and neighborhoods” this week named the Museum a finalist in its James B. Recchie Design Award program, which annually honors excellence in urban design reflected in historic and new buildings and places, additions to existing buildings, parks, public spaces, and public art in the city of Columbus. This year marks the award program’s 30th anniversary.
There’s an easy way to see how we can help. Let’s talk about it.
