Last year, Memphis-based EnSafe won the Grand Iris Award – the top prize presented by the state’s American Council of Engineering Companies – for an environmental project at the Navy Installation in Millington.
Now the ACEC is accepting applications for this year’s competition and local companies with an engineering focus are encouraged to enter.
Here’s hoping that another Shelby County company will take top honors this year.
If you’re interested, go ahead and get your application in now. Deadline to enter is Nov. 1 and that will be here before you know it.
Here’s more from the ACEC of Tennessee:
