Gorrill Palmer’s team of ten ran again in the Urban Runoff 5K this past weekend. Named one of the best 5K races in the country, the race and walk through Portland’s streets and trails raises money to support clean water education in the Greater Portland and Saco areas. Congratulations to our runners, who won the fastest overall team!
Recently, Gorrill Palmer design engineer Christi Holmes spoke to the engineering class at the Maine Girls Academy about what civil engineering is, and what opportunities there are for women in the field. Christi was joined by Stacey Harris, project superintendent at Consigli who, together, walked the students through the design and construction process. The class is currently designing prosthetic hands and will begin building them next semester. We are very proud of Christi and Stacey for sharing their passion with the next generation of female engineers.
