RKR Hess Honored With ASCE Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Award

ASCE AwardThe Lehigh Valley section of the American Society of Civil Engineering honored the civil engineering team at RKR Hess, a division of UTRS, Inc., for its work on the Aquatopia indoor waterpark at Camelback Resort in Monroe County, Pennsylvania.

The Aquatopia feature of the resort is the largest ever built in a single phase and the largest ski-in/ski-out waterpark hotel in the country, according to Lehigh Valley Business.

Nate Oiler, Engineer and Land Development Section Manager, accepted the Oustanding Civil Engineering Achievement award on behalf of RKR Hess, which shared the award with Geo-Technology Associates, Inc., and G.m.a Structural, LLC.

The construction of Aquatopia included large infrastructure improvements, such as a new pump station to address new sanitation needs with the expanded water systems.
