It’s National Engineers Week!

February 26th, 2021

Founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers in 1951, National Engineers Week is dedicated to encouraging a diverse, well-educated future workforce by increasing awareness and interest in engineering careers. Celebrated from February 21 to 27, 2021, Engineers Week is a time to recognize the important work engineers do while inspiring the next generation of problem-solvers.

As a multidisciplinary firm, all of our engineers – including civil, MEP, structural, traffic and water resources – contribute to making Galloway a collaborative workplace and a leader in our industry. At Galloway, our purpose is to enrich people’s passions, and the engineers highlighted this week represent just a few of our staff who are passionate about their fields and the communities they live in.

Keys to Successful Engineering Projects

To begin National Engineer’s Week, we shared the Three Keys to Successful Civil Engineering Projects on our blog and social platforms. Civil engineering projects can be complex, but that doesn’t have to create a complicated project process. Our civil team has compiled their three most essential keys for successful projects, from kick-off to closeout.

These include:

No matter the project phase, knowledge and insight can make projects succeed every step of the way.

Meet Galloway Engineers Brian, Chris & Jessica

During National Engineers Week, we highlighted a few of our talented engineers and the meaningful work they do.

Meet Brian Horan, PE, who leads our transportation engineering department.

Brian holds a lifelong passion for building and driving cars, which has evolved into an interest in the engineering aspects of all modes of transportation. He appreciates the collaborative nature of transportation and traffic engineering, and how working across multiple disciplines offers holistic views of every project.

Meet Water Resources Team Manager Chris Pauley, PE, CFM.

Water resources, to me, is the balancing act of one of our most precious resources,” Chris said. “There are so many demands on every drop of water…that every drop is spoken for, especially in the state of Colorado, at every step of the way.”

While this can create restraints on water in projects, Chris finds creativity in constraint. Over his 30-year career, the thing he’s enjoyed the most is finding “multiple-win solutions” to projects that can ultimately benefit the community and client stakeholders, while satisfying regulatory agency needs.

On Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, we’re excited to highlight civil project engineer Jessica Greenough, PE.

Jessica leads and participates in several STEM activities in our local community, including the ACE Mentorship program, the Boys & Girls Club, and SAME (Society of American Military Engineers). While Jessica has been interested in engineering from a young age, she has heard feedback from the girls she mentors that “they didn’t think it was easy for a girl to become an engineer.” Jessica does a great job of leading by example in the community and inspiring youth of all ages towards a path in STEM.

Thank you to our Galloway Engineers!

During this week, it was meaningful to recognize the many ways engineers impact the communities we live in, from the roads we drive on to the water we rely on. We appreciate our engineers every day, and we’ve enjoyed taking time to highlight just a few of their stories.
