City Projects Recognized for Excellence in Engineering


Two City of Sanford projects have received an Engineering Excellence Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies of North Carolina (ACEC/NC).

Each year, ACEC/NC recognizes engineering firms for projects that demonstrate a high degree of achievement, value, and ingenuity. For 2022, both Project Forge and the Moncure Megasite Sewer Extension received top honors.

WithersRavenel was the primary engineering consultant for the City of Sanford on Project Forge, a 98-acre economic development site project that became the site of Bharat Forge. The team ushered the project from start to finish despite a tight schedule and multiple partners.

Freese and Nichols, Inc. was recognized for innovation and extensive stakeholder coordination in extending sewer from the City of Sanford to the Moncure Megasite. This was the final step needed to make the site eligible for certification from the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina.
