Atkins (formerly known as PBS&J), honored 2011 ACEC California Engineering Excellence Merit Award for the Haven Avenue Grade Separation Bridge
A Merit Award also goes to Atkins (formerly known as PBS&J) for the Haven Avenue Grade Separation Bridge project. Atkins developed an innovative architectural concept and structural design for the Haven Avenue Underpass that is economic, effective, and a bold compliment to the backdrop of the San Gabriel Mountains. This innovative solution featured precast colored concrete arched girders spanning between arched piers. Locally produced prefabricated arch girders, pilasters, and balustrade railing units provided precise quality, reduced formwork cost and accelerated construction. Due to Atkins’ innovative solutions and close coordination with the City of Rancho Cucamonga, the result is a visually stunning bridge that was constructed on an aggressive schedule and met budgetary constraints.
