Diaz•Yourman & Associates (DYA) Receives CalGeo Outstanding Large Project Award for Tom Bradley International Terminal

Each year at its Annual Conference, CalGeo, considered The Voice of California's Consulting Geotechnical Engineers, presents awards for the year's "finest work in a number of categories."  This year's Outstanding Project Awards Luncheon took place on Saturday, May 3, at The Newport Beach Marriott Hotel in Newport Beach, CA, and DYA received the Outstand Large Project Award for its work on the Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport.

Designed and constructed over a period of several years, the project presented numerous geotechnical engineering challenges and required coordination with multiple stakeholders and over 50 contractors.  The new Tom Bradley International Terminal opened in 2013. 

Projects are judged based on:  innovation, difficulty of investigation or construction for design-build projects; quality of geotechnical report; success of interaction between the parties involved, such as those between design team, owner, and contractor; and social impact of the project.  This is the 8th Outstanding Project Award DYA has received from CalGeo.
