Baxter & Woodman, Inc., a leader in civil engineering, won praise for its design and construction engineering of the nearly $5 million Combined Heat and Power Project. This project allows the Authority to produce electricity and thermal energy using digester gas generated during the plant’s anaerobic treatment process. In order to meet a tight funding deadline, this project was designed, built, and operational in under 12 months.
