(L to R) Jamie North (DLZ), Tim Kyper of DiGioa Gray Consulting Engineers, Tim Hampshire (DLZ) and Jeanine Houy of the Pittsburgh District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
The Pittsburgh Post of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) awarded DLZ its Project of the Year Award for our efforts on the Charleroi Locks and Dam. The award was presented at the Post’s Annual Awards Banquet held on May 16th at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall in Pittsburgh.
DLZ was tasked by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Pittsburgh District to stabilize the original lock middle wall and miter gate monolith so that construction of a new lock middle wall could be performed while maintaining barge traffic through the one remaining active lock chamber. We were also tasked to design the features associated with a Reverse Cofferdam System which essentially moved a portion of the dam at the facility downstream approximately 400 feet to help facilitate construction of the overall improvements.
The project is a strong example of meeting SAME’s mission to identify and resolve national security infrastructure-related challenges. Tim Hampshire, DLZ’s Lead Engineer for the Project, and Jamie North, head of DLZ’s Pittsburgh office, accepted the award on behalf of the company from the Pittsburgh Post‘s Tim Kyper.
