Dock Design Team Secures Environmental Business Journal Award

April 2005
ETD's Heida Diefenderfer, Sue Sargeant, Ronald Thom, and Amy Borde won a Technology Merit Award from the Environmental Business Journal for their part in designing an ecologically sensitive dock. With Miller/Hull Partnership architects and a dozen stakeholders, the team designed the Northwest Maritime Center dock to foster a vibrant human community above the water and a healthy nearshore marine community below. The dock accommodates a future educational center and a wide variety of vessels. The dock also supports a restored eelgrass bed that provides habitat for Dungeness crab, salmon, and other species. Congratulations, team!
