Hawaii Joint Venture Receives Two U.S. Army Corps of Engineers–Honolulu District Awards of Excellence

Hunt Valley, Maryland (22 July 2010)—EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc. (EA), a leading provider of environmental, engineering, and program/construction management, and its joint venture (JV) partner, Helber Hastert & Fee (HHF), were recently honored with two Awards of Excellence in recognition of outstanding performance by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)–Honolulu District. The two Awards of Excellence were presented during the 15th Annual Army Corps of Engineers Workshop held on 20 May 2010 at the Hale Koa Hotel in Honolulu. Both EA and HHF have offices in Honolulu.

The EA/HHF JV was recognized for its exceptional performance on two separate projects completed under contract to USACE–Honolulu District. The first was an initial study for the Southeast Oahu Regional Sediment Management project, Diamond Head to Pearl Harbor (D2P), which was completed in 4 months under an expedited schedule. Resulting in the completion of a Regional Sediment Management Plan, sediment budget, and inventory of ocean sand sources within the D2P region, project tasks included coastal process modeling, historical data analyses, and extensive mapping using remote sensing techniques. The EA/HHF JV led the efforts of a multidisciplinary project delivery team which included USACE; State of Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources, Office of Conservation and Coastal Lands; School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology at the University of Hawaii; and Moffatt & Nichols.

In presenting the award, Todd Barnes, USACE–Honolulu District Chief of Engineering and Construction, stated, “The EA/HHF JV exceeded all expectations in its performance of the contract and all tasks were performed with utmost integrity and professionalism.”

The second honored project was the preparation of a planning study for the Army Pacific Command and Control Facility Complex (C2F), the future U.S. Army Pacific Headquarters, at Oahu’s Fort Shafter. Performed by the EA/HHF JV and additional members of its technical team, the planning study defined four separate, usable phases to meet the programmed budgetary phases of this critical project.

“EA appreciates this recognition and is looking forward to continuing to provide USACE–Honolulu District with excellent services in the future,” stated Nimish Desai, Vice President of EA’s Pacific Business Unit.
