Knott Laboratory Awarded 2019 Private Sector Project of the Year by NSPE Colorado Chapter

The NSPE Awards ceremony took place October 24, 2019 at the Vista at Applewood Golf Course in Golden, CO.


 

Knott Laboratory was awarded the 2019 Private Sector Project of the Year for its “3D Interactive Visualization of a Near-Fatal Pedestrian Accident” project by the National Society of Professional Engineers Colorado Chapter (NSPE-CO) 2019 Annual Awards Meeting.  Steve Knapp, P.E. accepted the award at the ceremony.

Knott Laboratory was hired as a forensics engineering consultant to investigate and provide a scientific visualization of a motor vehicle accident involving a pedestrian.  The accident occurred at a downtown Denver intersection, near a construction site.  At the time of the accident, a construction worker was directing two cement trucks, one that was arriving and another leaving the site.  One of the cement trucks made contact with the construction worker.  The purpose of the investigation was to reconstruct the accident within a three-dimensional virtual environment, evaluate multiple witness statements and establish the likely causation of the incident.
