GUY was honored to receive three awards from the Oklahoma Society of Professional Engineers at the organization’s June conference.
Civil Engineer Ryan Bellatti, manager of GUY’s Edmond office, was selected as the 2018 Young Engineer of the Year. Each year, only one Young Engineer of the Year is selected for Oklahoma. This is the fourth year in a row that an engineer from GUY has received the Young Engineer of the Year award.
GUY President John Blickensderfer received the Outstanding Engineer in Management award. A retired Colonel with the USAF Air National Guard, Blickensderfer has served as GUY’s president since 2014. He was instrumental in developing an Employee Stock Ownership Plan at the company so that all employees are rewarded for their hard work.
GUY also received the 2018 Outstanding Engineering Achievement Award for the improved design of North 193rd East Ave in Rogers County. This major collector roadway connects Owasso and a high-end housing development to SH-266, SH-167, and the Port of Catoosa. The original two-lane roadway was inadequate for the traffic level and required frequent maintenance. In addition, the lack of shoulders and steep grade caused safety concerns. GUY designed a new, safer roadway with 12ft lanes, a center turn lane, and 4ft shoulders for this heavy traffic area.
