KLJ Wins Top Honors in Montana for Engineering Excellence
The American Council of Engineering Companies of Montana (ACEC/MT) has awarded KLJ top honors during their annual awards program for the Colstrip Economic Diversification Strategy.
The Colstrip Comprehensive Economic Diversification Strategy was awarded for the study, research, and consulting of the project. When the Colstrip Power Plant, a large employer in the City of Colstrip, announced the closure of two of four major units by July of 2022, KLJ worked to help lessen the impact to the community. The team provided a true diversification strategy by working with the Southeastern Montana Development Corporation as well as various businesses, civic organizations, and residents, to outline sustainable economic development projects with a goal of strengthening the community and surrounding areas.
The ACEC/MT Engineering Excellence awards recognize a firm’s project that has applied unique or innovative technologies, enhanced awareness for the engineering profession, utilized social, economic and sustainable design and successfully fulfilled the client/owner’s needs, including schedule and budget.
