Bergmann Associates was recognized by the American Council of Engineering Companies of Michigan (ACEC/M) with an Engineering Honorable Conceptor Award for their work on the University Drive Diverging Diamond Interchange in the city of Auburn Hills, Michigan, at a recent awards ceremony.
“Bergmann Associates was excited to be a part of this project, which was the first diverging diamond interchange built in Michigan,” said Richard Chelotti, senior vice president Midwest Region, Bergmann Associates. “We delivered an innovative design that saved considerable bridge length and avoided introducing risky soils into the area.”
Bergmann Associates was the primary designer on the project, working as a subcontractor to Dan Excavating. The “Design/Build” effort was engineered to enhance the aesthetics of the area, while creating a highly efficient interchange. This project was delivered by the professionals from Bergmann Associates Lansing office, which features a team of more than 60 architects, engineers, planners and program managers.
The ACEC/M Awards program recognizes outstanding efforts of professional design firms to solve clients’ needs through exceptional projects, and offers the opportunity to showcase the year’s best engineering and surveying achievements to an audience of peers, clients and decision makers at all levels. On March 11, design professionals and guests gathered at the awards ceremony, held at The Fillmore Detroit, to recognize outstanding Michigan engineering and surveying projects from the past year, as well as engineering professionals who have significantly contributed to the profession.
