Walter P Moore was honored with the Golden State Award at last night’s American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) California Engineering Excellence Awards gala for the structural engineering of the recently completed air traffic control tower at San Francisco International Airport (SFO). The modern new tower uses a cutting-edge vertical post-tensioned system, enabling the tower to self-right and ensuring air traffic controllers remain fully operational after a magnitude 7.5 earthquake.
