2020 ACEC-NH Engineering Excellence Awards

Below is a link to the list of the American Council of Engineering Companies of New Hampshire (ACEC-NH) 2020 Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) winners. Our judges had to make some tough decisions as we received a great group of projects this year.  Congratulations to all the Winners! 

The entry by Wright-Pierce was the “Overall Winner” signifying the year’s most outstanding engineering achievement for the “Advanced Upgrades Raise the Bar and Revenues in North Conway, NH”. The project was entered under the “Waste and Storm Water” category.

You can view photos and more information of all the projects on our website. Please look for Our AD highlighting the winners and all entries in an upcoming edition of the NH Business Review. 

The Annual EEA Luncheon is currently postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. The ACEC-NH Board of Directors is currently evaluating options to properly recognize and celebrate the firm’s below and their engineering achievements.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Due to the fast changing COVID-19 situation, the ACEC-NH Board of Directors has made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone our public events until at least April 30, 2020. This includes postponing the Engineering Excellence Awards luncheon (March 19), Maximizing Business Development (March 26) and the NHDOT/ACEC-NH Tech Conference (April 16). We expect that events will be rescheduled at a later date and payments made to date will be applied to the future program.

Our Board will continue to monitor the situation and will be evaluating individual committees to determine whether these meetings should be held via teleconference or temporarily suspended.

Thank you

Pete King, ACEC-NH President

ACEC School Outreach Recommendation

As we look to our observance of Engineers Week in February, ACEC-NH would like to include in our celebration ways in which member firms are reaching out to local schools to engage students in STEM subjects and inform them about careers and career pathways for consulting engineers and scientists.

We’ve found that school outreach can be a win-win-win opportunity, promoting staff engagement and development, enhancing external visibility and branding for firms, and providing a valued resource to teachers and schools.  We believe there will be tremendous value to supporting the mission of ACEC-NH through the celebration of our collective involvement.
