NORTH COVENTRY PA – April M. Barkasi, PE, chief executive officer of Cedarville Engineering Group LLC, 1033 S. Hanover St., has been named by trade magazine Engineering News-Record to its Top 25 Newsmakers of 2016. It praised Barkasi for “good judgment, and intelligent and efficient application of emerging technology” on client projects, and added her as a candidate for its Award of Excellence to be presented April 13 (2017) in New York.

“We look forward to spending the evening with such a talented group of people,” Barkasi said.

The magazine lauded Cedarville’s use of three-dimensional reality modeling of a former industrial site in Coatesville, where Barkasi also serves as city engineer, to help developers visualize and measure the property’s topographic and ground conditions. The effort so far has led to a letter of interest in reclaiming and using one portion of the site, and several informal proposals for others.

Cedarville Engineering is an engineering technology company that specializes in civil, municipal, and environmental services, infrastructure asset management, and reality modeling. It also is a federally certified woman-owned small business.
