LAUDERDALE-BY-THE-SEA PROJECT WINS STATE AWARD
SCEC is proud to announce that the Lauderdale-by-the-Sea Streetscape Improvements program was selected as the state's Public Works Project of the Year by the Florida Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA).
The award recognizes the Town and project team's success in completing streetscape beautification, drainage, infrastructure, and pedestrian improvements along the Town's main corridor, Commercial Boulevard, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway Bridge.
SCEC completed the work under two Construction Management at Risk contracts (East and West segments) with the Town of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. The oceanfront easternmost block features a new series of three public plazas. The western two blocks feature four shopping/business plazas with new sidewalk promenades, redesigned parking, new landscape and coral reef-inspired metal sculptures. Construction was completed in December 2013.
The Commercial Boulevard Streetscape Improvement Program won in the APWA Professional Awards category for transportation projects less than $5 million. The national awards program was established in 1996 to recognize outstanding individuals, groups and chapters representing the best in the public works profession.
