"Sci-Tek Involved with One of the World's Top 100 Urban Climate Change Projects"
Sci-Tek is involved with one of the world's top 100 urban climate change projects, "The Uptown EcoInnovation District Project". The Uptown EcoInnovation District Project was named one of the top 100 projects worldwide addressing climate change on a local level. The distinction was made in the Cities 100 report distributed by Sustania, a sustainable development firm based in Copenhagen, Denmark. The publication highlights cities that are implementing outstanding projects, programs, policies, and practices to combat climate change and reduce climate risks.
The Uptown EcoInnovation District Project is positioning itself to be a leading model of civic engagement, mobility improvement, water management, and energy innovation. It is not only seeking to better connect Downtown and Oakland, but also to enhance a great network of assets within the Uptown community. The project is the product of ongoing collaboration among Allegheny County, the City of Pittsburgh, the Port Authority of Allegheny County, the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh, the Department of City Planning, Uptown Partners of Pittsburgh, Oakland Planning and Development Corporation, Sustainable Pittsburgh, neighborhood groups, universities, and other partners.
Sci-Tek is providing engineering services as a subconsultant to Interface Studio, LLC, a full-service planning and urban design practice based in Philadelphia. Interface Studio was selected as the Prime Consultant to provide consulting services for the Uptown EcoInnovation District Project. They were chosen out of 30 Request for Qualifications responses, submitted by groups representing more than 130 planning, architecture, engineering, energy, and community engagement firms from around the world.
