Presidio Tunnel Tops Earns ACEC-WA Award

MKA is thrilled to announce the American Council of Engineering Companies of Washington (ACEC-WA) selected Presidio Tunnel Tops (PTT) park to receive a Gold Engineering Excellence Award (EEA) in the Special Projects category.  The award was presented during ACEC-WA’s annual gala on February 3 in Bellevue, Washington.

The expansive, 14-acre, $118-million PTT park—built atop two highway tunnels—is a landmark destination and the newest addition to America’s National Park system.  As the project’s civil and structural engineer, MKA incorporated innovative and human-centered design solutions to restore the natural landscape, overcome challenging site conditions, reconnect visitors to nature, and prepare the park for earthquakes and climate change.

PTT park is one of only eight ACEC-WA projects selected to move on to the ACEC national competition.

Winners of the national awards will be announced during the organization’s annual black-tie gala on June 13 in Washington, DC.  Learn more about the project in the Seattle DJC here.
