The American Council of Engineering Companies of New Jersey (ACECNJ) and NJ TRANSIT held the first-ever Design & Engineering Workshop yesterday in Newark. Over 125 attendees, including 20 NJ TRANSIT professional staff, filled the ballroom at the Hilton Newark Penn Station for a full day of workshops to discuss best practices for business, procurement and capital project delivery issues.
During his welcoming remarks, NJ TRANSIT Executive Director Kevin Corbett stated, "It is so important for ACEC to hold these meetings."
A working group comprised of NJ TRANSIT officials and ACECNJ volunteers spent several months developing the workshop's presentations and interactive breakout sessions.
"Consultants view themselves as an extension of professional staff," said Pete Davis, Chair of ACECNJ's NJ TRANSIT Committee and one of the event organizers. "This workshop is a unique opportunity to enhance that working relationship in order to deliver better products and service to the public we all serve."
ACECNJ has developed similar programs with public agencies and authorities throughout New Jersey, including the NJDOT/FHWA/ACECNJ Design Summit and New Jersey Turnpike Authority Engineering Exchange.
ACECNJ President Joe Fiordaliso kicked off the event by discussing the importance of collaboration and thanking Corbett and his team for their commitment and service.
