Engineering Excellence Honor Award
American Council of Engineering Companies of North Carolina
The City of Hickory Bond Program was honored by the American Council of Engineering Companies of North Carolina in the Consulting Engineering category. The project guided the City of Hickory in paring and prioritizing $80 million in projects to the $40 million authorized in the City's 2014 bond program election. The Freese and Nichols team worked with a 42-member Bond Commission, deploying decision-making tools that enabled the Commission to evaluate, prioritize and schedule nine major projects.
