The American Public Works Association (APWA) recently announced it's Public Works Project of the Year Award recipients. Centennial Way received the award in the category of Transportation Projects $5 Million but Less Than $25 Million. The APWA Public Works Project of the Year Award was established to promote excellence in the management and administration of public works projects by recognizing the alliance between the managing agency, the consultant/architect/engineer, and the contractor who, working together, complete public works projects.
Working with the City of Phoenix, State of Arizona, and numerous other stakeholders, the design/build team of Entellus and Achen-Gardner successfully met the aggressive deadline and completed the project in time for Arizona's Centennial Celebration, marking the 100th anniversary of Arizona's Statehood. Centennial Way created a new streetscape along Washington Street which now serves as a
"gateway" to the capital area. The improvements incorporate many
decorative features highlighting Arizona's history and cultural

Entellus President Michael Bonar recently served on a panel of consultants to help the City of Phoenix save over $20 million. The savings will prevent service rate increases for 2013 as well as allow the Water services department to reduce their budget.
The City of Phoenix issued the following press release:
More than $20 million has been saved by the City of Phoenix Water
Services Department following implementation of a consultant’s
recommendations and staff ideas. The savings are the primary reasons
that Phoenix’s water and sewer rates will not increase in 2013. Water
Services’ operations budget for next fiscal year is projected to be $11
million less than this year’s budget.
Water Services staff have accomplished most of the consultant’s task
list as confirmed by a Citizens Advisory Panel, formed to review the
study. “In this city we are committed to innovation and efficiency and
we can see it at work right here in our Water Services Department,” said
Mayor Greg Stanton. “I’m also committed to preparing our city for a
strong future through sustainability in as many city services as
possible, and I’m proud to see our water systems implementing that
through conservation and solar programs.”
Actions leading to the savings include: reduced chemical costs,
eliminating positions, energy conservation measures, reduced debt
service from the sale of the city’s McMullen Valley water farm property,
sewer operating efficiencies, and installation of a 7.5 megawatt solar
panel system at the Lake Pleasant Water Treatment Plant.
“We take our tap water and sewer systems for granted because there
are so few service interruptions and we don’t see the massive
infrastructure needed to serve our customers,” said Councilwoman Thelda
Williams, chairwoman of the city’s Transportation and Infrastructure
Subcommittee. “12,000 miles of water and sewer lines, treatment plants,
booster stations, fire hydrants, reservoirs and especially the people
that make it all work keep us safe and comfortable 24/7.”
“Phoenix Water Services has done an excellent job of lowering costs
while enhancing services,” said City Manager David Cavazos. “The fact
that we have high-quality tap water that meets or surpasses
Environmental Protection Agency requirements, a stable supply, and the
fifth-lowest water and sewer bill of the nation’s 20 largest cities – in
the desert – is amazing.”
