Woolpert, a nationally ranked geospatial, design and engineering firm, recently achieved Nationalist Finalist status in the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) 2009 Engineering Excellence Awards competition.
Woolpert was selected as a national finalist for the firm’s involvement with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to develop airport survey/GIS standards. The new CADD and GIS standards for airport data will provide the FAA with the ability to use the existing data to support other projects or programs rather than re-collecting or re-creating the data. The program will leverage these geospatial datasets to improve and enhance airport safety and security through improved situational awareness in the airspace and within airside operations, thereby supporting the FAA’s NextGen Air Traffic program.
“Woolpert is very proud to be recognized by such a prestigious professional organization as ACEC,” said Tom Mochty, Woolpert senior vice president. “This recognition exemplifies our commitment to working with the FAA as well as other organizations to provide a high level of excellence and expertise in the geospatial sciences sector.”
ACEC’s council membership is comprised of more than 5,500 council member firms. These firms employ hundreds of thousands of engineers, architects, land surveyors, scientists and other specialists, responsible for more than $200 billion of private and public works annually.
Woolpert, ranked by Engineering News-Record as a top national design firm, provides professional engineering, architecture, planning, enterprise information management, water management, surveying and photogrammetry and remote sensing services to clients in the public and private sectors.
