Two Otak projects won 2013 Engineering Excellence Awards from the Washington Chapter of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) at their annual awards banquet!

In the category of Future Value to the Engineering Profession and Perception by the Public, Otak won a Gold Award for our Spring Creek Pedestrian Bridge in Winthrop, Washington. This bridge is a 385-foot clear-span cable-stay structure over the Methow River with elements designed to reflect the 18th Century steel construction in accordance with the historical context of the town.

Otak also won a Bronze Award for the SE Southworth Drive Curley Creek Bridge Replacement project for Kitsap County. This project involved the replacement of a 100-foot three-span cast-in-place concrete bridge that was built in 1929. The new structure, considered self-mitigating by the resource agencies, is a single, longer-span bridge that placed new piers outside the ordinary high water mark with widening of the channel to replicate historical conditions.
