GZA recently awarded four grants (the first to be awarded from GZA’s new “Shareholder Grant Program”) to support employee volunteerism and charity work in their communities and throughout the world. We are pleased to announce the following winners:
Reed Brockman and Ana Cristina Fragoso host as GZA's Matt Taylor, a geotechnical engineer, explains the basics about dams. Matt and John Delano are recent recipients of the 2013 Herzog Award for their technical paper on the Otis Reservoir Dam Project.
The 7 Line Extension is being constructed by the S3II Tunnel Constructors joint venture (consisting of JF Shea, Skanska and Schiavone), with Parsons Brinckerhoff having undertaken the permanent works design, and with HLH7 Joint Venture (consisting of Hill International, LiRo Engineers and HDR/Daniel Frankfurt) providing construction management services. S3II employed Arup as its engineer for initial ground support and construction sequencing for drill and blast operations; while Hatch Mott MacDonald was retained to design the precast segmental liner installed during the TBM drives.

Development of unconventional shale gas in the Northern Appalachian basin, particularly in the Marcellus and Utica shale plays, has significantly changed the worldwide domestic energy market.
Conventional oil and gas exploration, production, and transmission have been part of the region for decades; however, the increase in activity in unconventional plays has created extraordinary growth and development.
Wind energy is one of the world’s fastest growing renewable energy sources in the deregulated energy marketplace. GZA’s Geo-Civil and environmental experience has supported wind projects from wind resource assessments to foundation design. Multi-disciplinary environmental practice areas, teamwork, land development and energy industry experience qualifies GZA to manage fast-tracked and complex engineering projects. GZA is committed to communicate design alternatives and their associated risks with “no surprises”. This approach creates value for owners, energy source developers, w
