Jones Edmunds received the ACEC-FL Engineering Excellence Award for the Crawlerway Analysis Study for the SLS Program. We have continually served NASA and the Spaceport community’s civil infrastructure and facilities needs at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) for nearly 28 years with a focus on integrity, knowledge, and service. We are honored to be a part of the larger vision, working together with NASA and other technical experts in laying the groundwork for Artemis 1, which will launch NASA’s SLS rocket with Orion atop for a venture thousands of miles beyond the moon. The launch is planned for June 2020 from Launch Complex 39B at KSC.
As we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch to the moon this year, we feel even more honored and humbled to have served NASA over the years. The work that we have done over the years has played a role in making NASA’s mission a reality. Our work on the Crawlerway has been of utmost importance – literally helping to pave the way for space exploration (to learn more about our work on the Crawlerway.
We are excited to announce that the American Council of Engineering Companies of Florida (ACEC-FL) has recognized this work, and Jones Edmunds received the Grand Award of Engineering Excellence in the category of Geotechnical Engineering for our efforts on NASA’s Crawlerway Analysis Study for the Space Launch System (SLS) Program as part of the ACEC-FL 2019 Engineering Excellence Awards competition. An awards banquet was held on Friday, July 26th, 2019 at the Vinoy® Renaissance in St. Petersburg, Florida.
We are excited about what the future holds and look forward to continuing to serve NASA for years to come. We also are thankful to all of our associates who have played a critical role in serving NASA and being a part of this greater vision serving all of human kind!
