McKinnon Family Tennis Center Honored for Excellence by USTA

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (June 16, 2015) – The McKinnon Family Tennis Center, located on the campus of the University of New Mexico, was recently recognized by the United States Tennis Association (USTA) for excellence in construction and/or renovation of a tennis facility.  The Center was one of only thirteen winners in the country to receive this annual award.  It is also the only facility in the nation honored in the Educational Institution category.

The Center consists of six new competition-caliber courts.  The sunken courts are surrounded by spectator seating and include stadium lighting which allows the flexibility to schedule dual matches and tournaments.  The park-like landscaping includes signature fencing, logoed court benches, black-out widescreens on the non-spectator side of the courts, generous space at the baseline, and easy access to parking, along with concessions, public restrooms, scoreboards, and a sound system. 

Molzen Corbin provided architectural design services to this first-class addition and is working with the University on future phases of expansion to include six more outdoor competition courts along with a clubhouse. In addition to making the facility more spectator-friendly and boosting the recruiting advantage, this expansion has successfully enabled UNM to host additional tournaments, including the Mountain West Tournament and the USTA/ITA Mountain Regional Tournament.

The USTA is the national governing body for the sport of tennis in the U.S. and the leader in promoting and developing the growth of tennis. For more information on the USTA, visit www.usta.com.

Water Resources Members Present at Spring Water Conference

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (May 1, 2015) – Members from Molzen Corbin recently presented at the First Annual Spring Conference hosted by the Rocky Mountain Section of the American Water Works (RMSAWWA) and the Rocky Mountain Water Environment Association (RMWEA).  This sold-out conference was held at the Rotunda at the UNM Science & Technology Park and targeted water industry professionals, academics, operators, as well as students.

Clayton Ten Eyck, P.E. discussed the Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant for the Anthony Water and Sanitation District designed by Molzen Corbin.  This facility included reverse osmosis membrane treatment coupled with a sophisticated blending configuration to efficiently remove contaminants including, but not limited to, arsenic, nitrates and TDS with flexibility to treat single and multiple wells within their water supply.

Casey Cook, P.E. gave an overview of the water supply system design for the Zia Enterprise Zone.  The goal of this project was to create a clean and consistent water supply for the Pueblo’s planned commercial development in San Ysidro while avoiding the need for arsenic treatment. Among the technical challenges was a river crossing underneath the Jemez River.

Molzen Corbin team members continue to support our communities throughout the State of New Mexico while providing solutions to manage our water resources.

Three Projects Named 2015 ACEC Award Winners

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (February, 2015) – Molzen Corbin won three 2015 Engineering Excellence Awards from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) New Mexico Chapter.  They are:

  • Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant (Top Winner, Water Resources Category) - The Anthony Water and Sanitation District was faced with a tremendous challenge of multiple constituents exceeding the EPA’s primary and secondary drinking water standards in their water, making it unsafe for consumption.  The Molzen Corbin team designed a centralized reverse osmosis treatment system that included a sophisticated blending configuration to efficiently remove contaminants including, but not limited to, arsenic, nitrates and TDS with flexibility to treat single and multiple wells within their water supply.  The design also provided for optimizing the beneficial use of the District’s water rights.
  • Long-Term Parking Photovoltaic Improvements Albuquerque International Sunport (Top Winner, Energy Category) - The Molzen Corbin team designed an innovative, sustainable, and cost-effective solution for the Sunport that included a photovoltaic system installed on top of carports and energy-efficient LED lighting designed to save energy and effectively maximize the lighting distribution. This environmentally-friendly solution not only helps the Sunport remain competitive within the commercial aviation arena, it will reduce the carbon footprint by 1,300 metric tons per year.
  • Mesilla Plaza Kiosko Improvements (Special Project) - The Molzen Corbin team ensured that the structure was refurbished according to current code requirements while maintaining its historic character, by designing improvements that re-used as much of the original material as possible. The entire Plaza was updated with modern amenities that included lighting improvements. Our dedicated team finished on time and on budget.
