I ndustry L eaders To Chair the Education/Public Relations Committee ACEC Delaware recognizes Laidman of Landmark Science & Engineering to head committee


has been asked to Chair the Education/Public Rela- tions Committee for ACEC Delaware, the local chapter of American Council of Engi- neering Companies. As Committee Chair, Laid- man will lead the committee that selects two scholarship winners annually for ACEC Delaware’s scholarships awarded in May and hosts other events that serve to introduce ACEC Delaware to more people. The committee hosted their first Engineering Career Fair at the University of Delaware in November, and

it was such a success, they plan to continue it annually. Laidman earned a Bachelor of Environmental Engineer- ing degree, with a concentra- tion in water resources and water quality and a minor in civil engineering at the Uni- versity of Delaware. She has worked at Landmark for over four years, performing civil engineering for land develop- ment projects involving site design, stormwater manage- ment, water resources and environmental sciences. Ted Williams , the firm’s president, said that “as a past

Officer of ACEC Delaware and past Chairman of ACEC National, I’m pleased that Da- kota has become involved in ACEC as it provides the best support for our industry and her chairmanship of this com- mittee will help promote en- gineering as a career choice.” Landmark Science & Engi- neering is an award winning Delaware consulting firm, started in 1987 as Land- mark Engineering, Inc. The firm is one of the regions’ largest and most diverse integrated civil engineering and environmental consult-

ing firms, providing profes- sional services across the disciplines of site/civil, water resources and environmental engineering, land surveying, and environmental sciences including ecological and site remediation/brownfields. The firm of 30 serves clients in the Tristate region from its headquarters in New Castle, Delaware and branch office in Havre de Grace, Maryland. n Marcus &Millichap’s Webb pr o cur e s buyer for 99-unit multifamily BALTIMORE, MD —Mar- cus & Millichap announced the sale of Frederick Doug- lass Apartments, a 99-unit multifamily and retail prop- erty located in Baltimore, according to Bryn Merrey , senior vice president/division manager of the firm’s Mid- Atlantic and Southeastern offices. The asset sold for $6.25 million. “We were able to successful- ly navigate this particularly complex transaction through our knowledge of affordable housing and our ability to bring outside capital to the local market,” said Cameron Webb , senior associate in the firm’s Washington, D.C. of- fice. “There were a lot of mov- ing parts, with the tenants subsidized housing programs, loan assumption and out-of- market buyers.” Webb had the listing to market the property and ul- timately procured the buyer. Located at 1645 N Calhoun St. in Baltimore, the asset consists of a mix of 97 one-, two- and three-bedroom units and two commercial units occupied by non-profit orga- nizations, Penn North Kids Safe Zone and Penn North Recovery. Twenty units in the building are transition- al housing units operated by Penn North, Baltimore’s longest standing recovery community center under Maryland Community Health Initiatives, Inc. n 1645 N Calhoun St.

1200 Intrepid at the Philadelphia Navy Yard is the newly completed precast concrete work of art designed by world-renowned starchitect Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG). The front entrance façade gently curves inward while stretching outward creating a startling and gravity-defying visual that mimics the curved bows of the nearby battleships. The unique engineering requirements of the proj- ect meant that the gravity loads flowed directly to the ground and were not tied to the steel frame. Almost every piece of the front entrance façade is unique. This very complicated project presented a challenge that required an innovative solution using technical, engineering and creative exper- tise, and would not have been possible without the use of BIM and 3D modeling. For more information on this project and others visit us at www.highconcrete.com/news. “High Concrete saw our design as a wonderful opportunity to really show off their skills, talents and products. It has been a sincere joy to work with a group of precasters who are as engaged as they have been, willing to roll up their sleeves to work on solutions rather than seeing obstacles, and I am sure that they are proud of their efforts as much as we are.” Kai-Uwe Bergmann, AIA, RIBA, partner, BIG—Bjarke Ingels Group
