Muller Receives Three ACEC Colorado 2021 Engineering Excellence Awards

Lakewood, CO (November 3, 2020) - Muller Engineering Company (Muller) is proud to have received three ACEC Colorado 2021 Engineering Excellence Awards. 

  1. Muller's Rob Carlson, PE, received the Orley O. Phillips Award
  2. Wonderland Creek Floodplain and Greenway Improvements Project was awarded an Excellence Award and earned an additional opportunity to be submit to ACEC Nationals
  3. US 36 over Left Hand Creek Project received an Honor Award

Both project sites required emergency involvement after the devastating 2013 floods, which had a major impact on the communities, then and now. Not only did the projects involve hard work and dedication from multiple Muller groups and disciplines, they also required consistent and careful coordination with clients, owners, and numerous stakeholders to ensure success. We are proud to share this success with all of them. Congratulations to our teams!

"I cannot say thank you enough to the staff involved including our teaming partners who support them," said Muller President Gray Clark. "Also, immense thanks to our clients, the City of Boulder, the Mile High Flood District, and the Colorado Department of Transportation for their visionary leadership in promoting these amazing projects. Thank you also to everyone who worked hard to describe these incredible projects so we could develop two stand-up award entries."

Rob Carlson is very proud and humbled to accept the Orley O. Phillips Award. Rob proudly presented the award to Muller's founder, Larry Muller, posthumously, just a few years ago. Muller is extremely proud of Rob for this well-deserved recognition. This prestigious award is presented to an ACEC Colorado member who is nominated by the Past Presidents’ Council. The individual nominated is someone who has made a significant contribution to the profession, ACEC Colorado, and its programs. Rob not only led Muller for over 18 years, he has participated in numerous ACEC leadership roles, provides mentoring and guidance on the ACEC EEAs, continues to play a significant role in leadership at the QBS (Qualifications Based Selection) Colorado Coalition and stays actively involved on many fronts, even in “semi-retirement.” Congratulations, Rob!
