BETA Group Wins Bronze Engineering Excellence Award for Their Work on the Commonwealth Avenue Revitalization


BOSTON – The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named BETA Group as a 2021 Bronze Engineering Excellence Award winner for their work on the Commonwealth Avenue Revitalization.

The City of Boston recognizes that great street design is about connecting people to destinations, services, opportunities, and each other. Commonwealth Avenue lacked the orderly and safe accommodation of the multi-modal demands on the roadway. The resulting improvements transform the visual environment and extend the City’s network of bike, pedestrian, transit, vehicular amenities, and opportunity for uninterrupted access to destinations via safe, comfortable, convenient streets. The project responds directly to the Boston 2030 Vision Plan. It achieves transportation equity, improves safety and reliability, and significantly increases the effectiveness and use of public transit, walking, and biking.

The 2021 Engineering Excellence Awards were recently announced and will be celebrated at the virtual ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala. The awards celebrate innovation, ingenuity, and excellence in engineering achievement. Entries for the 2022 Spring Engineering Excellence awards are now available.

“The ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence Awards Competition recognizes engineering achievements that demonstrate the highest degree of merit and ingenuity,” said Dennis J. Baker, President of ACEC/MA and Vice President and Area Manager for WPS. “We celebrate this year’s outstanding engineering achievements, congratulate our winners and thank them for their contributions to improving the quality of our everyday lives.”
