LANCASTER, N.Y., August 1, 2018 – Ecology and Environment Engineering, P.C. (E & E) has been awarded the American Council of Engineering Companies of New York (ACEC New York) Gold Engineering Excellence Award in the Environmental category. The prestigious award recognizes E & E’s work for the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation (NYSOPRHP) to enhance an existing wetland and increase educational opportunities for park visitors in the Red House area of Allegany State Park in Salamanca, New York.
E & E designed a recreational boardwalk, bird blind, observation platform, walking trails, and wetland enhancements through invasive species removal and interpretive planting installation in Allegany State Park, New York’s largest state park, located in a heavily forested portion of Cattaraugus County.
“E & E completed a versatile recreation design that increased public interaction with a previously inaccessible area of the park,” said Jay Bailey, State Parks Allegany Regional Director. “The final design is exceptional and their leadership among the diverse stakeholders was a key reason for the success of this project.”
“We are very pleased that the Allegany State Park Red House project has been recognized by ACEC New York,” said E & E Project Manager Kris Erickson. “The project has successfully increased public access to a relatively pristine wetland area, and has provided the park with a valuable asset that will be enjoyed for years to come. This type of project is aligned with NYSOPRHP’s plans to enhance recreational opportunities in New York’s state parks. ”
