Bellingham Marine honored for work on Alaskan harbor project

The American Society of Civil Engineers' coastal institute recently announced the winners of its 2011 Project Excellence Awards and recognized Bellingham Marine in the large project category.

Bellingham was honored for its work on the St. Paul Small Boat Harbor project on St. Paul Island in Alaska. The project, which involved the construction of a functioning harbor to support a local fishing fleet, was designed and built for the Central Bering Sea Fisherman's Association.

“It is with great pleasure that we accept this prestigious award on behalf of the entire project team," company president Everett Babbitt said in a statement. “It took a lot of hard work and dedication to get this project built. We could not be prouder of the team's efforts and what was accomplished."
