On February 7, 2019, Ghirardelli attended the ACEC California’s 3rd Annual Scholarship Foundation Fundraising Dinner, presenting the ACEC California Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA). This event was held at the Union Square Hilton in San Francisco, and brought the Scholarship Foundation and EEA together to celebrate the achievements of the Engineering and Surveying industries, while supporting students and strengthening the future of engineering. These awards affirm the fundamental role that ACEC California member firms play in building and maintaining the quality of our infrastructure.
Ghirardelli won an Honor Award for the eBART to Antioch – East Contra Costa Extension. The project extended tracks ten miles east in the median of State Route 4, added two new stations, a parking lot, a train maintenance and operations facility, providing much needed congestion relief on this busy commuter route. Randy Bruner, Kelsey Ballesteros, and Raewyn Butcher were in attendance and accepted the award on behalf of the company.
