Consulting-Specifying Engineer has announced the recipients of its 2013 40 Under 40 award. This award is given to 40 building industry professionals age 40 and younger who stand out in all aspects of their lives. Mark Gifford of Integrated Environmental Solutions (IES) was selected for this year’s list.
Candidates were nominated by a professional colleague or mentor and judged based on commitment to excellence in their academic, professional, personal, and community involvement.
The May issue of Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine profiles each young professional, highlighting traits that lead him/her to continued success, recent professional projects, and personal achievements.
“It is my great pleasure to recognize these 40 young leaders from the building and engineering industries,” said Amara Rozgus, Editor-in-Chief of Consulting-Specifying Engineer. “Now in its sixth year, the competition is becoming more intense. Each winner truly deserves this award. Through project management, finding unique engineering solutions, volunteering, mentoring, and much more, these winners are guiding the building and engineering community.”
A specialist in energy-efficient design and building energy modeling, Mark Gifford has worked across the world as a consultant and senior associate for Integrated Environmental Solutions. In 2008 Gifford relocated to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on a 2-year assignment to spearhead IES’s Middle East operations, where he served as LEED project manager on the Abu Dhabi Financial Centre, the second largest LEED v2 Core & Shell development in the world.
“We’re very proud of Mark and his work with IES, especially in his new role as Commercial Manager for a new consulting service that’s come from our R&D divison,” said Dr. Don McLean, founder and CEO of IES. “He is spearheading our efforts to take this service to the worldwide market, and with little support, but good intuition and an innovative approach, we’re seeing substantial growth opportunities for it.”
