C&S Receives Two ACEC Engineering Excellence Awards
The American Council of Engineering Companies, New York Chapter, recognized two of C&S Companies’ projects with awards in their annual Engineering Excellence competition.
C&S designed and managed one of Monroe County’s largest locally funded projects in years. The total project cost was $8.6 million and covered 2.3 miles of Lake Road. It improved the pavement quality and widened the shoulders along the entire road. The goal was to enhance the safety and accessibility of the road for pedestrians and bicyclists. C&S guided the County through the project stages from preliminary design to construction. The project involved major improvements such as a deep mill and overlay treatment, shoulder widening, alignment adjustments, drainage system overhaul, railroad bridge removal, and culvert replacement.
The Port of Oswego Authority (POA) selected C&S to design and oversee the construction of their Grain Handling Capacity and Conveyance Improvements Project. For decades, the POA stored grain from local farmers on the ground under old, timber domed buildings. They manually loaded it out for shipment by ship or rail. Recently, the POA began exporting grain internationally. To maintain their USDA export license, they needed a modern silo and conveyance system. The new system is automated and includes a 21,000 metric ton silo, an unloading pit for truck and rail, and load out systems for railcar, truck, and ship. It also has a USDA certified weighing and inspection system. Additionally, two on-site laboratories were upgraded: one for USDA Inspectors to verify exports and one for SUNY Oswego to test inbound grain.
