Founded in 1960 and headquartered in Boston, MA, ACEC/MA is a member organization of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) based in Washington, DC. ACEC is a national federation of 52 state and regional organizations. The ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence Awards Competition Recognizes Engineering Achievements that Demonstrate the Highest Degree of Merit and Ingenuity.
The inclined elevator is a custom-designed single tram system (as opposed to a “funicular”, which is a dual tram system that counts on the opposing cab for counterweight). The tram will run on a track between two 20 ft by 20 ft ADA-compliant pavilions at a speed of approximately 200 feet per minute. It will be able to transport up to 18 passengers in about two minutes.
Coastal Engineering is proud to be recognized for its contribution for the engineering design of the Bradford Street Access Project, which included a state of the art inclined elevator for barrier free access to the historic Pilgrim Monument site. We would like to express our appreciation to The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts for acknowledging the entire design and construction team for their work on the project.
