The Beaver County Chapter of the Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers (PSPE) recently honored Larson Design Group with two awards, one for Project of the Year and one for Young Engineer of the Year.
Chris Wulff, PE, was recognized as Young Engineer of the Year for his stellar work on several high-profile projects in the greater Pittsburgh area, including the Westinghouse Corporate Headquarters in Cranberry Township, Chatham’s Eden Hall Campus in Richland Township, Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic High School in Cranberry Township, and the Tower at PNC Plaza in Pittsburgh.
Chris is a registered engineer in both Pennsylvania and West Virginia, and holds an LEED AP BD+C certification. He’s a member of ASCE and a founding member of the Pittsburgh Chapter of Engineers Without Borders, and he’s active in Adoption Connection PA.
The Project of the Year was Hardy Field Park in Brighton Township, led by F. Thomas Zeglin. The project involved the renovation of an existing multi-use field that was used for both football and baseball into a field used only for baseball. Laser-guided, micro-grading GPS blade control and earth-moving equipment were used to micro-grade the entire playing area.
One of the design goals at Hardy Field was to have all public facilities comply with current ADA regulations. This required the construction of a switchback ramp between the football field and baseball field, and full access to restrooms and parking lots. The lower parking lot was paved in the fall of 2015 and an ADA-compliant pedestrian crossing was constructed across from Tuscarawas Road. The entire park is compliant with Access Board requirements. The project was completed one year ahead of schedule.
The awards were presented at PSPE’s Engineer’s Week Dinner on February 26th.
