JMT received multiple awards at the annual Engineering Excellence Awards dinners held recently by three American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) chapters: ACEC/Pennsylvania, ACEC/Maryland, and ACEC/Delaware.

ACEC/PA

JMT received Diamond Awards for two projects:

ADAMobile Solution (Building/Technology Systems category)
JMT Technology Group developed ADAMobile, a mobile solution that provides the ability to inventory pedestrian facilities based on ADA Standards for Accessible Design. Built for the Delaware Department of Transportation using Esri ArcGIS Mobile technology, ADAMobile allows field crews to collect data and provide real-time updates to the office. The deployment of the ADA inventory system included establishing a system infrastructure, building an ADA database, and configuring data entry forms.

Gettysburg Transit Center, Gettysburg, PA (Small Projects category)
JMT provided land development, site and building design, and construction management and inspection for a new transit center in historic downtown Gettysburg. The transit center consists of a 1,500 SF bus transfer center, outdoor open and covered plaza areas, patron seat walls, bicycle facilities, landscaping and water quality rain gardens, lighting, wayfinding signage, historic panels, and other site amenities.

PennDOT District 5-0 was recognized as the Client of Distinction, based on the recommendation by JMT.  This award was accepted by District Executive Michael Rebert, PE.

ACEC/MD

JMT received Honor Awards for two projects:

Maryland Mobility Report (Studies, Research, and Consulting Engineering Services category)
The 2012 Maryland Mobility Report is the initial publication of what is anticipated to become an annual report on the status of roadway system congestion in the state. The report, developed jointly by the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA), University of Maryland Center for Advanced Transportation Technology, and JMT, greatly raises the level of understanding about true traffic conditions through the application of INRIX data. Future annual reports will help allow SHA to measure progress in terms of reducing congestion.

Owings Mills Boulevard Phase I, Baltimore County, MD (Transportation category)
A 1.2 mile extension of Owings Mills Boulevard opened to traffic in August 2012.  JMT completed the contract documents in less than six months, addressing numerous environmental, political and economic constraints placed upon the project team, and saved the client more than $1 million.

ACEC/DE

JMT received an Honor Award for:

Centreville Streetscape, New Castle County, MD (Transportation category)
For two decades, the residents and commuters along Kennett Pike in Centreville have been requesting improvements to their major commuter road.  JMT performed a planning study and design engineering services for the Delaware Department of Transportation.  We proposed a Complete Streets plan that provides safe and increased accessibility for pedestrians and motorists, which in turn promotes a healthier community and economic prosperity.  The project was delivered on time and on budget.
