Happy holidays from all of us at the Bureau of Engineering!
This past year has been an incredible time for the Bureau of Engineering and our Sixth Street Viaduct project team. To round out the celebrations, we would like to acknowledge the two awards our project received in the month of December. 
Our first award was from the Civil+Structural Engineer Media for their Yearbook of Engineering Achievement (YEA) Award. The Sixth Street Viaduct was entered into this vote along with dozens of other construction projects around the nation. Thanks to all our supporters, the Sixth Street Viaduct received the most votes and secured this year’s YEA award, and was featured on the cover of the Civil+Structural Engineer Media’s December issue. Don’t we look beautiful! 
We were also thrilled to receive the Grand Prize from the Los Angeles Business Council's 52nd Architectural Awards. This award was presented to a project that approached design in a way that listens to and learns from the people and places in its surrounding community.
The Sixth Street Viaduct’s design philosophy has always kept community in mind, with a focus on bridging Los Angeles’ Arts District and Boyle Heights communities together. We are incredibly proud to be presented with this award, which you can read more about on the Los Angeles Business Council's website.
