Tectonic's road work earns firm top engineering award.

Tectonic was recently awarded a Diamond Award by The American Council of Engineering Companies of New York for the reconstruction of the 1-684/Route 22 Interchange in Westchester county.

The prestigious Diamond Award is the highest level of award at the state level and is one of 23 distributed for engineering excellence in nine categories covering building and infrastructure projects in the United States and abroad. These engineering excellence award projects will be on display in the lobby of the Empire State Building, on Fifth Avenue between 33 and 34 Streets, from September 13 to November 23, 2005.

The exhibit is located in the main public corridor, which can be entered from Fifth Avenue. Tectonic was contracted by the New York State Department of Transportation to provide construction phase environmental oversight services for the 1-684/Route 22 Interchange (Exit 3) in Westchester county.

One of the project's highest priorities was maintaining water quality because of it's proximity to one of New York City's most critical water supply source, the Croton Watershed.

The project involved a complex reconstruction of the interchange accompanied by an extensive state-of-the-art erosion and sedimentation control system involving drainage improvements, erosion control and storm water management facilities to minimize and treat runoff.
