United Consulting was awarded a 2012 Pavement Award within the category of Governmental – City, County, Parks, & Schools from the Indiana Chapter of the Asphalt Pavement Association.

On November 15, 2012, the United Consulting/Rundell Ernstberger Asociates, LLC team received the highest honor at the 35th annual Monumental Affairs Awards Ceremony. The team was awarded the Monumental Award for the Indianapolis Cultural Trail: A Legacy of Gene & Marilyn Glick. The Monumental Award is the highest honor presented at this annual event sponsored by the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce. United Consulting also received an Honor Award for the Indianapolis Cultural Trail project in the Engineering category.
The Indianapolis Cultural Trail: A Legacy of Gene & Marilyn Glick is a world-class facility combining eight miles of bike and pedestrian paths with existing urban roadways in a safe and practical way while providing connectivity to five major cultural destinations and the entire Indianapolis greenway system. The project includes construction of new, shared paths and sidewalks that incorporates art into public spaces while emphasizing green and context sensitive design. Every intersection required careful consideration between vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic. The project was a collaborative effort by the City of Indianapolis Department of Public Works, and Central Indiana Community Foundation.
United Consulting was named one of the Best Places to Work in Indiana for the fifth year in a row by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce! United was one of 39 small to medium Indiana companies to receive this achievement. Thanks again to our staff for making United one of the Best Places to work in Indiana!
Mayor Greg Ballard accepted the award for the 2011 ASCE Indiana Civil Engineering Project of the Year. Although many were involved in this project, United played a vital role in the success of the Construction Engineering phase. According to a News Release from the Mayor’s Office, “The city initiative was developed to spur investment and create economic opportunity by removing the old I-65/I-70 ramps on the near eastside and building a new interchange along Washington Street for smoother traffic flow and to improve pedestrian access”.
