Gannett Fleming Receives CMAA Recognition

The Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) Baltimore and Central Pennsylvania Chapters recently honored Gannett Fleming with two project awards.

Completed in 2019 for the Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works in Severn, Maryland, the $1.5 million Ridgeway Sewage Pumping Station improvements provide efficient service for 138,000 county residences and businesses. Gannett Fleming served as construction manager for the project, helping the team overcome significant on-site challenges to deliver the upgraded facility in accordance with county requirements and to meet anticipated future service demands.

The $34 million CATA Transit Facility expansion provides efficient transit service for 7.3 million passengers annually throughout State College, Pennsylvania. Completed in 2019 for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation Bureau of Public Transportation, the expanded facility enhances maintenance and servicing capabilities and increases storage capacity for up to 96 compressed natural gas (CNG) buses. Gannett Fleming served as construction manager for the state-of-the-art facility, set to effectively serve the county’s transit needs well into the future.

Additionally, the CMAA Central Pennsylvania Chapter awarded a young professional scholarship to Luke Ashberry, a resident project representative at Gannett Fleming who recently earned his Construction Manager-in-Training (CMIT®) designation.
