Miyamoto International Team Wins ASCE Land Development Project of the Year With Pacific Life Insurance Company Tower

SANTA ANA, CA--(Marketwire - February 25, 2009) - Miyamoto International has won the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) of Orange County Land Development Project of the Year for its structural engineering work on the Pacific Life Insurance Company Tower. The project team included Ware Malcomb, as the architect and interior designer, Parker Properties as developer, Canyon Consulting and NMG Engineering.

The Pacific Life Insurance Company project is a nine story, Class A office tower located in Aliso Viejo, California. The sleek design of this building highlights the use of sustainable design elements, such as extensive utilization of natural daylight.
