We’d like to introduce you to the young professionals who are guiding the building and engineering industry to be leaner, greener, more productive, and more balanced. These 2012 40 Under 40 winners have pioneered new processes and worked on some of the largest and most sustainable buildings around the world.

As associates, founders and co-owners, project managers, and general engineers, these superstars have made names for themselves as leaders and innovators. They’re training and mentoring all levels of engineers along the way, and each winner makes time to volunteer for charitable causes and/or industry organizations.

As moms and dads, pet lovers, world travelers, do-it-yourselfers, and everything in between, these 40 Under 40 winners understand the importance of work-life balance. Among their many relaxation tactics, they retrofit their own homes, escape to nature on adventures, play games indoors and out, and frequent local restaurants.
