The 7th Annual Ladies Golf Tournament was held on September 10th by the Amesbury Chamber of Commerce. We are so proud to sponsor this event to bring together the women of our community. Every year, a portion of our proceeds fund an Amesbury High School Scholarship in memory of Marcia Cammett. These scholarships are given to many deserving graduates to assist them as they further their educations.
Cammett Engineering recently designed this is a “living wall” at a client's West Newbury, MA site. The living wall was created at this site to maintain the look of the natural environment which keeps the area as “one with nature”. Not only is it visually appealing but it also helps to mitigate wetlands and filters impurities from the water and air. This is a win-win situation! Once the hydroseeding grows in, it will barely be noticeable, especially compared to a typical concrete retaining wall.
Cammett Engineering has been selected by McGinley Kalsow & Associates to prepare an existing conditions plan for the Historic Abbot Hall. Abbot Hall, an iconic and stately Romanesque brick edifice, is the town hall located at 188 Washington Street, Marblehead, Massachusetts. In addition to town offices for the Selectmen, the Town clerk and the Historical Commission, the building contains the highly popular Spirit of 76 painting, the original 1684 Town Deed, a Maritime Museum, Sign Museum, numerous displays and artwork related to the Town, and a Gift Shop. Utilizing both GPS and traditional transit equipment the hall and surrounding grounds will be located horizontally and vertically to create a baseline for the future refurbishment. We at Cammett are proud to be working on such a beautiful and historic property. Click HERE to read more!

On May 11th, our very own Woody Cammett was honored as the Amesbury Lions Club Humanitarian of the Year -- What an incredible honor! Woody was honored at the Amesbury Lions 36th Annual Benefit Golf Tournament at the Apple Hill Golf Club in East Kingston, New Hampshire. Thank you Amesbury Lion's Club for a wonderful event!
*Quotes taken from Wicked Local Newburyport Article
“Woody’s dedication to Amesbury has been unparalleled in generosity, magnified by his love of community and exemplified by a goodhearted nature toward all. Woody’s professional experience is matched two-fold by his generous spirit. I got to know Woody up close and personal when I was project manager for the recently constructed Our Neighbors Table facility on Main Street in Amesbury; there I witnessed his professionalism in his organization’s detail to the job and generosity in his donating from his own pocket to cover the cost of the needed civil engineering.”
- John Massua
“Woody and his company’s care for the Amesbury community is evident everywhere, highlighted by his commitment and support for the Amesbury Educational Foundation and visible during the holidays as the Amesbury Community Christmas Tree brightens the downtown. A benefactor to Boston Children’s Hospital and other health-related programs, Woody understands intimately the value of finding cures for an array of health afflictions, especially cancer. Woody will be honored during the tournament’s deluxe luncheon when several local officials are expected to be present. Mr. Cammett will be awarded Lions International’s highest form of recognition, a Melvin Jones Fellowship Award, as Woody embodies humanitarian ideas consistent with the nature and purpose of Lionism and has demonstrated such throughout his lifetime.”

Our staff at Cammett Engineering is always
continuing to expand our education and
knowledge. On August 19th, Jane Salvaggio
attended a seminar, Introduction to
Boundary Law and Research for Survey Technicians at Clark University. This seminar was a great introduction to the current and historical laws and practices relating to the transfer of ownership of land. It also gave further insight into the terminology and concepts of boundary law that is necessary in boundary research. Through this seminar, Jane expanded her knowledge in critically analyzing her research. Jane stated that, “the seminar gave practical advice on matters that apply directly to my current survey practices both in the field and the office. It was a worthwhile addition to my surveying education!”

Golfers participated in a scramble format tournament beginning at 9 am. During the event, as golfers made their way to the 1st hole, they stopped to play Black Jack and to participate in the Putting Contest. At the 9th Green, golfers picked up “Swag Bags” filled with various items and ladies picked up an additional gift made by Beverly Drew.

Without these sponsors, it would not have been possible for us to exceed our goal in raising over $25,000. All proceeds from the event and sponsorships will be matched by Woody and Linda Cammett. The event will equally benefit the Amesbury Educational Foundation and the Boston Children’s Hospital.

Supporting Amesbury Public Schools
Cammett Engineering President/CEO Woody Cammett surprised the Amesbury High School with a donation of $115,000 for school projects. Cammett's only request was to name the eventually renovated courtyard as the Caring Starts Today (CST) project, with three different sections named after three local sisters. Each woman donated a kidney to a person in need. Cathy Toomey donated a kidney to her son, Sean, in 2003, Terri Doerfler donated a kidney to a friend earlier this year, and Woody Cammett received a kidney from Sue Deorocki in 2010. This generous donation was announced during the Amesbury Educational Foundation Hall of Honor celebration held on Friday, April 29.

OSHA Training, Worth the Time Commitment
During our time as interns at Cammett Engineering, Emily and I have had the opportunity to complete a 10-hour OSHA training course online. OSHA, which stands for Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is “an organization that was created by Congress to help bring about change and regulation to workplaces all over the world to help protect workers from being hurt and injured on the job.” It is important for employees to know the information provided by OSHA, as it states the ways to maintain safety and avoid hazards in various potentially dangerous situations. Since it is an online course, we were able to complete the ten hours of training at our own pace when we had some free time during our work hours. The course itself includes many modules of various topics. When you complete a module, you are then tested on the information to ensure that you know it. You are then tested at the end on all of the modules in order to pass the training. We learned a lot and it was well worth the time commitment. All companies should have an OSHA form posted in their office, as it can improve employee health and satisfaction in your facilities.

Hydric Soils Workshop, Massachusetts Association of Conservation Commissions (MACC) Held on Thursday, July 18th in Sharon, MA
The hydric soils workshop was the second part of the MACC Soil Identification and Field Skills Workshop. During the morning session, presenters Peter Fletcher and Gillian Davies from the previous week as well as Michael McHugh taught the group more about soils, specifically the identification of hydric soils. Some of the many aspects included were the difference between upland and wetland soils, soil indicators, and redoximorphic features. During the afternoon session, the group headed out to the Mass Audubon’s Moose Hill Sanctuary for a hands-on field session to practice the skills learned during the classroom setting. Art Allen met the group on the site to assist in training and further field skills. The large group was split into three sections in which each section used augers in different areas to determine types of soils based on identification techniques we had learned and then where it would be most appropriate to hang a wetland flag. The MACC workshop as a whole was a great opportunity to learn more about soil identification and field techniques.

Quench Landscape’s Thirst and Save Water!
After attending a webinar session with Forester University regarding SMART irrigation technologies, I learned that SMART irrigation is an advance control technology which ensures water saving by measuring the depletion of soil moisture in order to operate the irrigation system. The system will help identify when more water is necessary and turn off when soil is already moist. The system can be implemented in a sprinkler system into the valve or head to reduce and control water pressure to reduce use and improve application. This process will minimize run off, water use, and overall, conserve one of our most precious resources. These systems are an excellent way to not only see a return on investment, but help reinforce conservative practices and should be highly considered!
