KLJ Receives Project of the Year Award
We are proud to announce that our team has received the North Dakota Society of Professional Engineers Chapter 3 2019 Project of the Year award for our work on the Marian Grotto, located on the University of Mary campus south of Bismarck.
We collaborated with Integration Design Group to design and engineer the Marian Grotto. The new campus landmark, modeled after the Our Lady or Lourdes in France, provides students, faculty, and staff with a place for private prayer and reflection. KLJ performed civil engineering services for the project, including identifying a site for construction, surveying the land, and designing a layout for the grotto retaining walls, tunnel, storm drains, and sidewalk.
The Marian Grotto, which opened to the public in September 2017, features heated concrete for year-round access to the outdoor gathering place and is one of fewer than five grottos within the state.
