Tetra Tech Earns ACEC’s Top Honor For Engineering Excellence

Tetra Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEK) announced today that it was awarded the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) Grand Conceptor Award for its contributions to the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal (IHNC) Lake Borgne Surge Barrier in New Orleans, Louisiana. This U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project was recognized as the year’s most outstanding engineering achievement during the 46th Annual Engineering Excellence Awards—a juried national competition sponsored by ACEC.

“Built to withstand a once in a 100-year storm surge event, the new surge barrier effectively moves the first line of storm-surge defense more than 12 miles away from downtown New Orleans, and is now a model for floodgate and floodwall design worldwide,” ACEC remarked in a written statement.

The 10,000-foot-long Lake Borgne Surge Barrier features three gates that allow vessels passage through channels in the barrier wall. Tetra Tech provided design project management services, developed preliminary and detailed designs of an innovative 150-foot-wide buoyant sector gate at the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, and designed the structural monoliths and foundations of a 56-foot-wide vertical lift gate with vehicular bridge at Bayou Bienvenue. Tetra Tech performed its work as part of a joint venture with Ben C. Gerwick, Inc; the IHNC was constructed by Shaw Environmental & Infrastructure, Inc.
