Ruby+Associates, a leader in constructability-focused structural engineering, received a Merit Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies at the Michigan Chapter’s Engineering and Surveying Excellence Awards Gala on Saturday, March 11th. This year’s event was held at The Fillmore in Detroit. The Merit Award was given in recognition of Ruby’s involvement in Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium Canopy project.
ACEC/Michigan’s yearly awards program honors outstanding engineering and surveying projects and individuals. Submissions are judged by a panel of area leaders in education, government and the engineering industry.
Ruby’s innovative steel erection plan for the new 17,000+ ton shade canopy addition to Hard Rock Stadium (home to the Miami Dolphins football team) involved virtually no shoring, which was critical in maintaining the project’s schedule.
Bruce Burt, PE, SECB, Vice President of Engineering for Ruby, accepted the award on behalf of the firm at the gala in Detroit.
