Tenn. transit center honored for engineering

Posted on March 22, 2012

The City of Knoxville's new transit center received the top award for engineering from the American Council of Engineering Companies of Tennessee. The lead engineers on the project, from CDM Smith, accepted the Grand Iris Award at the annual ACEC awards banquet.

The John J. Duncan Jr. Knoxville Station Transit Center, which opened in August 2010, is the first Silver LEED-certified government building in Knoxville.

"CDM Smith is very pleased to have been involved in the development of the Knoxville Station Transit Center," said CDM Smith VP Bob Bowers. "The Grand Iris Award of the American Council of Engineering Companies of Tennessee highlights the project's engineering excellence, although it is certainly a reflection of the quality of the total project and the teamwork involved in its development."

Other members of the team included Knoxville architecture firms McCarty Holsaple McCarty and Bullock Smith & Partners. The transit center on Church Avenue in downtown Knoxville serves as a bus transfer hub for Knoxville Area Transit. It was partly funded with a $23 million federal appropriation secured by Congressman John J. Duncan. Construction was managed by the Public Building Authority.
