UFFALO GROVE, Ill.  — Profile® Products celebrated the work of several distributors at its annual awards banquet, which was held in early February during the International Erosion Control Association Conference.

“If it weren’t for our distributors’ hard work, innovation and commitment, our industry wouldn’t be where it is today,” said Wally Butman, vice president of international sales and key accounts for Profile. “These awards are just one way we can recognize the positive impact distributors have on projects and our communities.”

This year’s “Project of the Year” award recipient is Construction EcoServices for their work restoring Memorial Park Land Bridge in Houston, Texas. After decades of rapid growth and industrialization, a team of locals, scientists and other experts set a plan in place to restore the coastal plain habitat and improve the park’s ability to handle stormwater, hurricanes, floods and droughts. Construction EcoServices used Profile’s GreenArmor System reliable replacement for hard armor, and hydraulically applied ProGanics® Biotic Soil Media to reinforce root systems and replenish the soil. Almost a year after the application, soil tests were taken and showed a 116% increase in organic matter, a 148% increase in cation exchange capacity and a 423% increase in respiration.

Additionally, this year’s “International Project of the Year” award winner is Maccaferri Environmental Solutions for their work on the Chenab Railway in Jummu, India. As one of the world’s highest railway arch bridges, the complex topography and extreme weather conditions proved challenging not only to build the structure, but to revegetate the surrounding area. After using Profile’s Soil Solutions Software (PS3), the Maccaferri Environmental Solutions team employed Profile’s GreenArmor System with hydraulically applied ProGanics and Flexterra® HP-FGM®. They also applied JumpStart™ and BioPrime™ to accelerate germination.

The “Project of the Year” award winners are selected based on the size and scope of the project, the quantity and variety of Engineered Specified Products (ESPs) used, the effort required to write the specifications and the amount and severity of obstacles to overcome.
