Placer River Bridge Project recognized by the American Plywood Association

"In a setting as naturally picturesque as the remote Alaskan forest, it's only fitting that the structures built within it be equally beautiful. With its graceful glulam beams and elegant symmetry, the Whistle Stop pedestrian bridge on the Kenai Peninsula fits well with the wild river it crosses and the scenic glacier it leads to."
- American Plywood Association, March 2014

Capital Improvments on the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area

ETS staff members Frank Leoni, Karen Bower, Richard Mora, and Eleanor Oman
are currently on assignment in Las Vegas, NV working diligently on Spring Mountains National Recreation Area (SMNRA) Capital Improvements Team. SMNRA Capital Improvements Team is in the process of reconstructing multiple recreation facilities as well as constructing a new visitor’s center. The projects are in various phases of implementation ranging from early contracting to open for business. This SMNRA team is being recognized for their continuing work to keep accessibility a top priority during all phases of project development, from conception and design through implementation.

I want to acknowledge Frank Leoni, the engineer on the
project, for his outstanding efforts to make the reconstruction
a reality - from NEPA, 30/50/90/100% design, value analysis,
contract advertisement, contract approval, coordination

with AL&L, and COR to completion all in less than 2 years
on an $8 million project; and for developing a
with one of the local high schools in the woodworking

class to refurbish some redwood so they can make
benches for the Visitors Center!

Thank you, Frank!
Way to go SMNRA and keep up the great work!
