(West Palm Beach – November 2011) Wantman Group, Inc. (WGI) is pleased to announce their selection for the Honor Award from the 2012 FICE Engineering Excellence Awards Program. As Engineer of Record, WGI was selected for the Honor Award based on their involvement in the Southbound I-95 Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) Station project in Martin County, Florida. The new WIM Station plays a key role in the prevention of premature deterioration of the interstate pavement system, provides added security for station personnel, and ensures sustainability through its smaller environmental footprint.

(WGI) provided numerous innovative concepts that were implemented to ensure a safe, environmentally sensitive and operationally efficient design. WGI’s services included engineering, surveying, environmental assessments and permitting. The WIM station in Martin County is the first of its kind in the state to weigh trucks in motion with sensors embedded in the outside at-speed travel lane of I-95. The design garnered a LEED Silver Certification.

We are proud of our efforts and enjoyed the opportunity to utilize a variety of services and personnel to collaborate on a sustainable, efficient and cost-effective design for the WIM Station,” said David Wantman, PE, President of WGI. “Being recognized in this way is a testament to the commitment of our associates and the strength of our team.”
