New Jersey Motorsports Park Engineers Earn Excellence Award

Millville, N.J. (March 19, 2009) - PS&S, the civil engineering firm responsible for the design of New Jersey Motorsports Park, will receive a 2009 American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) annual Engineering Excellence Award at a ceremony on Thursday night for their work on the South Jersey facility.

The ACEC annually recognizes companies for projects that demonstrate a high degree of achievement, value and innovation. Award criteria includes the value to the engineering profession and perception by the public. Positive social, economic and sustainable development considerations are also made by the ACEC.

The Distinguished Award presented to PS&S acknowledges New Jersey Motorsports Park for its larger community impact, placed alongside projects involving bridges, water treatment plants, dam repairs and other public works.

"The ACEC award is great for the industry recognition, but laid side-by-side to the other award winners reinforces the public good of New Jersey Motorsports Park," said Timothy Edmunds, Senior Associate at PS&S. "By virtue of the criteria, receiving this honor speaks to the complexities involved in this project for us as engineers."

PS&S, who also consulted on the environmental permits involved in the construction of the Millville, N.J. facility, has engineered projects ranging from Riverfront Park Stadium (home to Minor League Baseball's Trenton Thunder) and the Trump Taj Mahal Hotel Casino to infrastructure projects.

"The recognition that PS&S is getting for their involvement in this project is well deserved," said Kevin Wittman, New Jersey Motorsports Park General Manager. "Tim Edmunds and the PS&S team put a tremendous amount of work into helping launch New Jersey Motorsports Park in time for a successful debut season, and it's great to see them acknowledged."

Sitting on over 500 acres in Millville, N.J., New Jersey Motorsports Park is conveniently located to Philadelphia, the Jersey Shore, New York and Baltimore, and offers diverse and dynamic motorsports attractions.
