The Corradino Group wins an American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) of Kentucky Engineering Excellence Award!

The Corradino Group was awarded the 2015 Kentucky Engineering Excellence Award for design of the Preston Highway Beautification Project in Louisville, KY. The original streetscape design project increased in scope when drainage, safety, and access problems were addressed by Corradino’s designers. A key component of the project was the innovative green concepts addressing drainage problems. Corradino worked with the City to secure incentive funds from the Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) for additional services.

The ACEC Engineering Excellence Competition recognizes engineering achievements which demonstrate the highest degree of merit and ingenuity. Entries are rated on the basis of uniqueness and originality; technical value to the engineering profession; social and economic considerations; complexity; and, how successfully the project meets the needs, including time and budget constraints, of the client.

Corradino and Dalhoff Thomas Design Studio Win

The Corradino Group and Dalhoff Thomas Design Studio were awarded the Memphis- Shelby Low Impact Development Competition.

In the fall of 2013 the Memphis-Shelby County Office of Sustainability received a $21,900 Green Development Grant. With this funding, the office hosted a two-day conference on Low Impact Development and a design competition. The award was an opportunity to showcase skills with Low Impact Development (LID), a way to treat stormwater runoff in a way that mimics the natural hydrology of the site instead of piping the water directly off the site. The design competition site was a 12.5 acre senior living community in United Housing Inc.’s (UHI) Wolf River Bluffs Planned Development in Frayser. With UHI’s previous green development utilizing EcoBUILD energy efficiency technologies in their housing stock it was natural for them to utilize LID for Phase 2 of their development.

The competition drew entries from 28 firms on eleven teams. Round one judging was conducted by professionals in Low Impact Development who are members of the Houston Land/Water Sustainability Forum. The top three design teams moved to the final round of judging. In the final round, a local jury of 17 civic leaders, design professionals, developers, and other decision makers judged the teams on their design and presentation of it. The Memphis-Shelby County Office of Sustainability announced on August 11, 2014 the three team’s to move to the second round. The final awards event took place Sept 4, 2014 to a standing-room-only crowd.

Corradino is honored to have partnered with Dalhoff Thomas Design Studio and to have been awarded this prize.
