RACE Coastal Engineering was recognized by the American Council of Engineering Companies for its design of the Steelpointe Harbor waterfront project in Bridgeport, Conn.

RACE Coastal Engineering, a waterfront structural, geotechnical and regulatory design firm has joined the Connecticut Maritime Coalition, a group that develops strategies to strengthen the maritime economy in the Nutmeg State.

The CMC consists of 23 member businesses that share market knowledge and work with state government, businesses and private organizations. The maritime industry in Connecticut employs more than 12,000 and generates revenues in excess of $2.6 billion annually.

“We’re excited to be part of the revitalization of Connecticut’s waterfront cities and towns for our citizens and visitors, as well as for our transportation needs,” Devin Santa, president of RACE Coastal Engineering, said in a statement. “I-95 continues to get more congested — our deep water ports can alleviate our highways and create jobs. This is important to not only CT, but the entire Northeast.”
