P ennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers Philadelphia honors Urban Engineers The Rail Park honored at 2018 Outstanding Engineering Achievement Competition

HILADELPHIA, PA — Urban Engineers (Ur- ban) announced that the Rail Park was recognized with the Outstanding Engi- neering Achievement award at the Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers Philadelphia Chapter’s (PSPE Philly) annual Out- standing Engineering Achieve- ment Competition event. The award was the highest level winner of the competition, which recognizes the region's best projects designed, erected, and manufactured in 2018. “It is an honor for us at Ur- ban to be recognized for our en- gineering achievement on this project,” said Angelo Waters, PE, LEEDAP , Urban’s project manager for the Rail Park. “We are very proud of the hard work of our staff and all who contrib- uted to this project.” Waters and Urban Bridge Engineer Andrew Van Schoo- neveld, PE, presented on the engineering work that went into the Rail Park to the judg- ing panel. The Rail Park is a $10.8 million project that has transformed a blighted section of the former Reading Railroad Viaduct in Philadelphia into an elevated park with walking paths, landscaping, lighting, swinging benches, and expan- sive city views. The park is a much needed green amenity to Center City’s northern edge and is the result of a successful collaboration between Urban Engineers, Center City Dis- trict, the Friends of the Rail Park, the City of Philadelphia, SEPTA, Studio Bryan Hanes, A.P. Construction, and many others. The park’s design was P Moove In Self Storage promotes Reiff to property manager YORK, PA —Locally owned and Moove In Self Storage has promoted Shelly Reiff

chosen to reflect the neighbor- hood’s industrial roots and repurpose the historic elements of the rail structure wherever possible. Awide path through the park is edged with native canopy trees and plantings designed to provide air quality benefits and manage stormwater runoff. It is interspersed with a variety of public spaces, benches, wooden swings, and walkways. The Rail Park’s Phase 1 is a proof- of-concept that will be used to advance the next phase of the project. PSPE Philly was born in 1934, in the depths of the great

depression, when a group of engineers met at The Engi- neers' Club of Philadelphia and decided to form a group that was dedicated to maintaining the professional integrity of the engineering profession. At the same time in New York and four other cities, similar groups formed. These groups decided to combine and form a larger organization, which was to become the National Society of Professional Engineers. The Philadelphia chapter, the founding chapter, grew to over a thousand members and then began to split into smaller county-based chapters. 
