Who Says Engineers Don't Know How to Make Fun?

Yes, we have all heard the jokes about the boring, meticulous engineers. Recently, however, another example of one of SAI's interesting projects was featured in the news (above the fold no less and with a color photo) in the Washington Post (June 7, 2012, page A-1). It showed the new fiery attraction at Six Flags in all its glory, Apocalypse, which debuted this summer. It is the theme park's first new coaster in a decade and SAI's design of mechanical systems in partnership with contractor GMS (General Mechanical Systems) out of Annapolis helped make it possible.

SAI has previously partnered with GMS on a number of major projects including data centers at the US Naval Academy, several for US Pharmacopeia, the Maryland Dept. of Transportation and others. It is especially gratifying for Maury to work with a fellow Blue Jay, a lacrosse player at that. Congrats to GMS's President, Greg Lilly, on the 20th anniversary of his championship team.
