Honor Award – ABNA, St. Louis
Project: Washington Avenue Streetscape (7th Street to Memorial Drive)
Client: St. Louis Development Corporation
ABNA Engineering, Inc. is a full service civil engineering firm entering its 24th year in delivering Client Delight! As the prime designer and construction consultant for the Washington Avenue (7th-Memorial) Streetscape, ABNA’s staff devoted their talent to ensuring this corridor remained a top jewel within St. Louis’ Downtown destinations. ABNA provided topographic surveys, cost estimates, design, drainage analysis, and utility reconstruction, to develop construction contract drawings and specifications. In addition, ABNA’s constructability solutions minimized impact to the streetscape’s ongoing attractions. ABNA’s design seamlessly bridged the existing eastern and western Washington Avenue streetscapes; added new pedestrian ADA sidewalks; engineered solutions for the complex underground conflicts such as building basement extensions, utility vaults, and the MetroLink Tunnel; and added inviting and colorful landscaping.
