Case Studies in Engineering Excellence
Share |

Ever wonder "What engineering firms do?"

Well, the answers to these questions may not be that obvious to an average citizen who sees a builder hanging steel for a new building or pouring concrete for a new bridge.


Where does the engineer fit into this process?

In almost every case, an engineering company developed the plans that the builder is following to complete the job. Ensuring that buildings and bridges are structurally stable, that traffic flows smoothly and safely, that runoff from land development activities does not pollute streams, that water is safe to drink -- these are the jobs of the engineer and the engineering companies - people working together Designing the Future of Texas.

Below you will see case studies of ACEC Texas Member Firms applying their expertise and judgment to the specialized need of the individual client, while ensuring a finished project reflecting quality and value. These projects were all winners in ACEC Texas’ 2020 Engineering Excellence Awards competition, which recognizes innovation, creativity, and the ability of firms to meet and exceed the expectations of clients.

The American Council of Engineering Companies of Texas would like to thank the many extraordinary member firms that entered their projects in this year competition and we hope that many more will join us at next year’s event.  We encourage you to be attentive in your daily life to all the things engineers do to bring you enhanced mobility, clean water, protection from floods, enhanced health care, and all the other qualities of modern life.
