An engineer who has made a significant impact on masonry codes, a project manager overseeing work on CD5 Niqliq Channel Bridge in the North Slope of Alaska and a sustainability expert specializing in national and international mixed-use and retail projects are among the rising stars selected as ENR Northwest's Top Young Construction Industry Professionals, an annual program recognizing young design and construction professionals from the region who have made significant contributions to their firms, professions and communities.

While other ENR programs, including Best Projects, honor firms and their endeavors, the Young Professionals program focuses on individual achievement, in this instance the contributions of six men and four women under the age of 40 and hailing from Alaska, Oregon and Washington.

ENR Northwest received several entries for the program, and a panel of six industry professionals selected candidates they believed best demonstrated excellence and leadership in their professions and communities.
