The Georgia Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architecture (GAASLA) held its annual awards banquet Saturday, July 18, and honored Thomas & Hutton Engineering Co. with the highest design award. Thomas & Hutton received the Award of Excellence for the Ranger Memorial for the 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah.
The Award of Excellence is presented by the GAASLA to a single entry by unanimous decision of the judges. The project, based on the judges’ review, stands far and above the other entries and embodies the spirit and understanding that best reflects the goals of the ASLA.
“We are honored to receive such a prestigious award,” stated Dan Gay and Timothy Gay, lead Landscape Architects for the Ranger Memorial.
The Georgia ASLA Professional Awards Program was created to recognize professional excellence and outstanding examples of landscape architecture by Georgia landscape architects. These awards honor works that represent the forefront of the profession of Landscape Architecture and embody high levels of creativity and imagination.
The Ranger Memorial was completed in October 2007 and has been branded as being of “Washington D.C. quality” by countless visitors. The Memorial continues to represent the great sacrifice the Rangers make for America.
“This award is really for the Rangers,” Dan Gay said. “We are honored to have been a part of such a meaningful project.”
