The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Temple University hosts a weekly seminar series which brings environmental professionals to Temple University to discuss issues of current interest with our undergraduate and graduate engineering students and faculty. On April 23, 2010, Bill Castle had the privilege to share W.J. Castle, P.E. & Associates, P.C.’s Quay Pier Rehabilitation Project with Temple University’s College of Engineering. We would like to thank Dr. Philip Udo-Inyang, Director of Undergraduate Studies College of Engineering and Dr. Sandip Shah, Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering for the invitation to participate in this wonderful opportunity for the Engineering Community. We look forward to another exciting seminar series with next year’s Students and Faculty.

The Coast, Oceans, Ports, Rivers Institute’s (COPRI) Project Excellence Award Judging Committee found that The Castle Group’s approach and execution of the project stood out among a myriad of competitors.
“The Judging Committee was faced with a difficult decision, due to the extremely high-quality of submissions. The technical expertise demonstrated in each of the competing projects was superb,” says James E. Spady, PE, Chair, COPRI Awards Committee. The Committee ultimately selected The Castle Group as winner of the small project category.
“For a company of only 10 people to be one of two companies in the nation to receive the COPRI 2009 Excellence Award is a major accomplishment for The Castle Group. We are honored to have the hard work and innovation behind the success of this project recognized by such a prestigious institute and it motivates us to continue our standard for excellence,” says Castle’s Melissa Stein.
