In December we announced Senator Pat Bates as our Legislator of the Year. We were honored that the Senator was able to accept the award at our EEA banquet.

Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center was not the only project to receive an award. Notably, many firms won multiple awards. The top 18 award winners were eligible for the top California Golden State Award. And all 18 of these Honor Award winners are eligible to go on to the national Engineering Excellence Award competition in Washington D.C.
