The contenders in our latest Top 20 Under 40 competition span the tri-state A/E/C industries and offer a diverse mix of skills and experience — a Parisian transplant now a New York designer working on acoustical projects, a civil engineer with a focus on forensics, a veteran who led his construction team in completing more than $150 million in projects this year. Our panel of judges reviewed all 39 entries and, in the end, chose the 20 professionals whom they see as this year’s highest achievers.
