SIA Solutions (SIA) was honored to receive the Small Business Excellence Award in Architectural & Engineering (A/E) Design Services from the Kentucky Chapter of The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME). This award recognizes a small business firm that has exhibited excellence in A/E design services over the past year. SIA was nominated for their Navigational Waterway Mat Sinking Technology Development Project.
Dr. Srini Neralla, CEO of SIA accepted the award at the Kentuckiana Post Small Business Workshop and Federal Forum held in downtown Louisville, KY held on 29 January 2020.

SIA is leading a team of cross-functional engineering experts to design, build and test an automated, articulated concrete mat sinking barge in support of the USACE mission to maintain navigational waterways critical to U.S. national security. The team includes: the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC), Bristol Harbor Group, Inc, and the American Bureau of Shipping Group, Inc. The final Full Width Robotic System (FWRS) will provide a more cost efficient and safer automated process that will improve the USACE’s capability to stabilize critical navigation waterways and ensure that they are available to complete the DoD mission.
SIA Solutions Receives 2019 Business Achievement Award
SIA Solutions (SIA) received the 2019 Climate Change Business Journal (CCBJ) Business Achievement Award for its development of an installation energy management plan (IEMP) for Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA) in Texas. As one of the largest Air Force installations in the country, JBSA comprises 11 geographically separate operating locations throughout San Antonio and spends approximately $60 million annually on its energy consumption.
The IEMP focuses on identifying energy-efficiency project recommendations that support JBSA’s goals to improve resiliency by increasing renewable energy supply, implementing efficiency and conservation initiatives, and implementing redundancy and diversified strategies to ensure mission readiness. Implementation of the IEMP will effectively decrease pollution and improve efficiencies that enhance the environment. Execution of the JBSA energy strategy will largely be achieved through traditional funding vehicles, public-private or public-public partnerships, and efficient operations. The recommended projects identified provide almost 540 gigawatt hours (GWh) of self-sustainable and resilient energy. The solar and combined heat and power (CHP) solutions provide $9.1 million in total cost savings, which may be used for enhancing other areas of mission readiness.

SIA Solutions Receives 2018 EBJ Business Achievement Award Environmental Business Journal Recognizes Firms for Growth and Innovation
SIA Solutions, LLC was recognized for Social Contribution in Government Partnering for advocating the adoption of Intergovernmental Support Agreements (IGSAs) that allow installations to partner with State or local governments on common facilities. As the Department of Defense (DoD) continues to adjust to uncertain budget priorities and funding shortages, military installations are looking for ways to reduce costs while retaining and enhancing capabilities critical to their missions. IGSAs allow partnerships on grounds keeping, refuse collection, animal control, and bulk supply purchase agreements. The resulting cost savings and efficiencies are now encouraging military and civic leaders to pursue broader partnership initiatives that can have far-reaching positive impacts on the environment, including natural resource management, ecological monitoring, environmental stewardship, and energy and water conservation and resiliency projects.
