Chaney Enterprises won two Maryland American Concrete Institute (ACI) Excellence in Concrete Awards. The company received an award for its MD 331 Dover Road Bridge Replacement project, which carries MD 331 over the Choptank River to connect with Talbot and Caroline counties.
The bridge was built in critical areas and wetland mitigation sites using an innovative Omega Beam trestle bridge system, which minimized impacts to the environmentally sensitive areas. The Omega system was developed within a year of the project and was the first application of this system to be used.
The other award was for work on the Stevensville Chesapeake Village Center, which earned an Excellence in Concrete award for its use of insulated concrete forms (ICF).
“The achievement of these awards is the direct result of the hard work and commitment of our employees, who constantly strive to be the best at what they do,” said Francis “Hall” Chaney, III, president of Chaney Enterprises, in a press release. “At Chaney, continuous training and education is part of our culture, because we know that excellence in our communities starts with an understanding of best practices in our field and carries over in the application of those skills on our projects.”
