Ben Adams, a man at home in board rooms, state houses, and on stage, passed away yesterday, May 22, 2017 from complications after strokes. He was with his wife Connie McKay Adams, and his three children. He was 83. His life paralleled the life of that of his adopted home town, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, where he came from Nashville to live in the late 1950s, just as the city was formerly incorporated. He started his engineering business, Adams Craft, Herz and Walker (ACHW), in 1960. He raised his family. He worked tirelessly to make Oak Ridge a better place to live, to work, and, yes, to play.
UCOR, the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) cleanup contractor for the Oak Ridge Reservation (the site of the Manhattan Project), has been awarded the prestigious 2017 EH&S Innovation Award at the Verdantix Summit this week.

Hickory Construction celebrated its 40th year in recently with an announcement at Knoxville’s Jackson Terminal that the company hopes will give local construction workforce development a much-needed boost in the career-consideration mindset of Blount and Knox counties’ Millennials and rising “Generation Z” high-school graduates. The company announced “Hickory-Built Careers in Construction,” a $40,000 investment of scholarships – including the start of a permanent endowment – at Pellissippi State Community College’s Engineering Technology program, which includes numerous construction-related course offerings among its associate’s degree options, as well as certificate programs.
The CNS Office of Technology Development and Transfer recently signed a licensing agreement with Per Vivo Labs, a service-disabled, veteran‑owned small business in Kingsport, Tennessee, to bring the Y‑12–developed SIMWyPES technology to market. SIMWyPES, a 2008 R&D 100 Award‑winning technology, was originally created by now-retired Y‑12 inventor Ron Simandl as a safe, efficient way to remove residual amounts of contamination from dry, solid surfaces. Per Vivo hopes to adapt the technology to support clean-room manufacturing, defense, and filtration applications.
