SCS Engineers Wins IEA Environmental Excellence Award

October 30, 2017

COMM22 mixed-use, mixed-income redevelopment project recognized at the 33rd Annual Environmental Training Symposium

SAN DIEGO, CA –When the Industrial Environmental Association (IEA) presents its 2017 Environmental Excellence Awards, October 30, SCS Engineers will receive an award for its investigation and design program for COMM22, a multi-family residential development by BRIDGE Housing. IEA is a non-profit advocate organization that promotes industry and protects the environment.

COMM22 is a mixed-use, mixed-income, transit-oriented development built on a former bus maintenance facility. SCS addressed several issues including underground storage tanks and the testing of fill soils. The firm’s pre-construction characterization and three-dimensional data analysis resulted in time and budget savings.

“The remediation effort we conducted to prepare the property for development focused on ensuring human health and the environment were protected,” said Dan Johnson, vice president of SCS. “It was important to do this as cost-effectively as possible as affordable housing is important to our communities. We applaud the work of BRIDGE Housing and the collaboration it takes to create urban projects like this.”

BRIDGE Housing Corporation, a leading nonprofit developer of affordable housing, creates and manages a range of high-quality, affordable homes for working families and seniors. Since it was founded in 1983, BRIDGE has participated in the development of over 16,000 homes in California and the Pacific Northwest. For more information, visit
