Each year only one project is recognized and I am very proud to say that the City of Richmond’s Green Alley Program took home this award. This is a huge honor for Timmons Group and our team that worked so diligently on this project.
Richmond, VA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 31, 2011
Timmons Group, an ENR 500 Design Firm and a leader in civil engineering and professional consulting services, announced today that the firm has been recognized by the Virginia Lakes and Watersheds Association (VLWA) with the 2011 Watershed Excellence Award. The award is given to firms each year that demonstrate they have made significant benefits to the water quality in the Commonwealth of Virginia. This award was presented to the firm and the City of Richmond during the 2011 VLWA Conference held in Richmond, VA for the City of Richmond’s Green Alley Program.
Timmons Group designed an innovative solution that allowed rainwater to infiltrate through a new permeable paver system and multiple layers of stone before being captured. The Green Alley Program was the first application of green alley stormwater management in a city within the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
“We’re extremely honored by VLWA’s recognition,” says Andrew Gould, PE, Principal in Charge of Timmons Group’s Stormwater Services Group. “Each year only one project is recognized and I am very proud to say that the City of Richmond’s Green Alley Program took home this award. This is a huge honor for Timmons Group and our team that worked so diligently on this project.”
This latest honor reinforces Timmons Group’s corporate commitment to sustainable design principles and environmental stewardship. We seize every opportunity and see it as our responsibility to protect and restore our ecosystem to the maximum extent possible.
