Senator Joseph Finnegan Park at Port Norfolk Project Wins EBC Award

July 26, 2018

GEI’s Senator Joseph Finnegan Park at Port Norfolk Project was recently awarded the EBC (Environmental Business Council) Nicholas Humber Environmental-Energy Award for Outstanding Collaboration.

The Senator Joseph Finnegan Park at Port Norfolk, once the home to a variety of industrial companies, was transformed from an industrial wasteland to 12-acre waterfront park along the mouth of the Neponset River.  GEI initially performed site investigations and preliminary design and permitting. The team worked closely with the DCR and the surrounding community to develop the design. Once the state could secure funding for the project, GEI was tasked with managing final design and preparation of bid documents as well as assisting the DCR with construction management.

The Park was a cleanup project that resulted in a beautiful passive park.  To ensure this paradigm shift, the DCR engaged GEI as the lead designer and Licensed Site Professional (LSP).
