Several signature projects that reflect Taylor Engineering’s commitment to its core values — technical expertise, client service and teamwork — have attracted the attention of agencies and organizations across the state. Such projects include
In 2009, Taylor Engineering received one of the 2009 Grand Engineering Excellence Awards presented by The Florida Institue of Consulting Engineers. For this project — S-65E Emergency Tailwater Weir Structure — Taylor Engineering and its team members worked in concert to conceive a downstream structure — a low-elevation sheet pile weir — to reduce the Kissimmee River’s channel width and allow S-65E to discharge as designed. An aggressive design, hydraulic and structural analysis, construction document preparation, and bidding schedule allowed only two and a half months from Taylor Engineering’s notice to proceed to start of construction, and four months to complete construction — a seemingly impossible task because this type of project would normally take 24 months to design and build.
In 2009 The Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County chose the West Palm Beach Waterfront Commons Floating Docks for its Beacon of Light Award, given annually to a project that enhances boating opportunities. As a subcontractor, Taylor Engineering helped the City of West Palm Beach design, permit, and construct a series of floating docks as part of the downtown waterfront redevelopment program.
In 2008, Taylor Engineering received the American Shore and Beach Preservation Association’s award for the Best Restored Beach. The firm was responsible for the feasibility, design, permitting, and construction administration phases of the seven-mile Western Walton County and East Destin Beach Restoration Project.
