David Johnston to Receive Construction Institute of ASCE Roebling Award

Posted May 16, 2013

The Construction Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers is pleased to announce that Dr. David W. Johnston, PE, F.ASCE, Edward I. Weisiger Distinguished Professor Emeritus at North Carolina State University, has been selected by the Construction Institute of ASCE to be the recipient of the prestigious Roebling Award, which "recognizes an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of construction engineering."

The award citation reads: "For outstanding leadership through the ASCE Construction Institute in developing a path for construction engineers to pursue licensure as professional engineers and for continuing leadership in preparation of the NCEES construction engineering exam module for the civil engineering PE exam."

This award was established by the Construction Institute of the Society in memory of three outstanding constructors:
John A. Roebling - the visionary designer and builder of suspension bridges
Washington Roebling - John's son, who translated the visions into the "Brooklyn Bridge"
Emily Roebling - Washington's wife, who, in effect, became the field superintendent in support of her crippled husband's effort.

The Roebling Award was instituted by the Board of Direction in April, 1987, and is funded by gifts from the Construction Industry.

Dr. Johnston will receive his award at the national ASCE Annual Convention on October 11, 2013 in Charlotte, North Carolina at the Charlotte Convention Center
