"This is the first school proejct we have undertaken with BBT, and we are pleased they chose our firm to help complete this project. We have worked with BBT on large commercial projects in the past, and all the projects have gone very smoothly. Our team has also completed large architect-led educational projects in Washington state, including new buildings at the University of Washington and a large addition and remodel at Bellevue Community College."

 

The project involves a wide variety of design elements, much of which will be completed while school is in session. The largest project involves an extensive additionand remodel of the K-8 Terrebonne School, which will require public street improvements, utility design and site grading and drainage deisgns. The entire project is expected to last for approximately 2 years and has a budget of 10 million.

ACM Engineering (ACME), a Central Oregon civil engineering firm focused on civil designs for large urgban projects, has recently been certified as an Emerging Small Business (ESB) by the State of Oregon. The company has also simultaneously received certifications as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) in Oregon, and as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) which is a Federal designation. These designations allow the firm to qualify for projects with goals or requirements for a certain portion of funds to be used to help support the growth and vitality of small businesses in Oregon.  The certifications are granted through the Office of Minority, Women and Emerging Small Business who strives to ensure that minorities, women, and emerging small businesses have equal access to contracting opportunities in both the public and private sectors.

 

The Emerging Small Business certification is for small businesses seeking contracting opportunities on projects specifically designated for ESB participation. The ESB program is a race- and gender-neutral program and is limited to smaller businesses (under 20 – 30 employees) who have not exceeded the program limit for average annual gross receipts over the past three years.  Limits range from just over 600,000 to 3.1 million depending on the type of wok a company does. MBE and DBE certifications also allow ACM Engineering to seek opportunities to apply for Sate and Federal contracts designating goals to include firms with these designations. 

 

ACM Engineering has been offering civil engineering services in Oregon for nearly 4 years after previously operating as the Washington MBE firm Franklet Enterprises. ACM Engineering/Franklet Enterprises has completed the civil design for a variety of Central Oregon and Northwest urban development projects such as sports stadiums, public faciliites and streets, airports, fueling stations and docks, university buildings, several outdoor shopping centers, and many high-rise office buildings.

ACM Engineering (ACME), a rapidly-growing Central Oregon civil engineering firm has recently been selected to design a fueling dock for the Port of Anacortes, Washington

Principal Engineer and owner George Franklet, PE says the project developer had experienced some trouble finding a civil engineer experienced in Underground Storage Tank (UST) design. The developer had heard about ACM Engineering from a colleague who worked with ACM Engineering team members in the past and also owns property in Redmond, Oregon.  “The developer visited our website and contacted us after reviewing our team’s past experience with both UST project as well as projects located in Washington State.” George says, “It goes to show that you never can tell what effect your website can have in helping long distance clients make decisions.”

 

The project involves the design of two 15,000 gallon USTs for a marine fueling dock at the Port of Anacortes which is approximately 2 hours North of Seattle, Washington. 

 

Franklet, who is a registered professional civil engineer in Washington and Oregon and has a masters degree in Environmental Engineering, says “We are encouraged that this project will prompt Central Oregon developers who are in need of civil designs for fueling stations or other UST storage facilities to contact ACM Engineering.”
