June 16, 2015

Byan Zimolka, P.E.Howard Stein Hudson is delighted to announce that the Boston Society of Civil Engineers Board of Government has named Bryan Zimolka P.E. as the winner of the 2015 BSCES Bertram Berger Young Engineer Award.

Bryan has seven years’ professional engineering experience, working in the Construction Services group at Howard Stein Hudson, specializing in temporary traffic control, construction management, contract administration, traffic analysis and roadway design. Bryan has already left his mark on numerous high profile projects in the Boston area. In particular, Bryan was instrumental in success of the Prudential Tunnel’s Hynes Convention Center Ceiling Replacement Project which involved extensive traffic management along the MassTurnpike and downtown streets. The project was nominated as project of the year at this year’s ACEC gala. Bryan has also developed Construction Management Plans for several other high-profile projects in the Boston area, including the Millennium Tower/Burnham Building in Downtown Crossing, Pier 4 in the Seaport District, and at Boston Landing in Allston.

Robbie Burgess, Construction Services Manager, has mentored Bryan on the complexities of traffic engineering and construction management at Howard Stein Hudson and notes “Bryan is an integral part of not only Construction Services but of HSH as a whole. He brings, dedication, experience, creativity and an upbeat, positive personality. This award demonstrates that Bryan’s commitment to the field of Civil Engineering extends beyond the short walls of his workspace.”

Bryan has represented the company well at BSCES. He has been an active Board Member of the Transportation and Development Institute (T&DI) group, taking the initiative to enhance the value of the T&DI technical group, which formerly functioned as a networking group for Civil Engineers. Bryan’s goal was to transform the T&DI group into a resource to provide and host educational technical sessions to advance the engineering community’s insight on new means, methods, and practices. As part of this transformation, Bryan coordinated and hosted the first educational webinar series in the history of BSCES. His hands-on involvement branched from generating the topic of ADA Compliance, to securing the participation of key public figures. Because of the success he had with the webinar, a second webinar on Utility Work on Public Projects was scheduled for early June.

Bryan will be presented with the award during the Bertram Berger seminar on June 16 at the Courtyard by Marriott on Tremont Street. The company will reserve a table at the lunch presentation.

Please join Howard Stein Hudson in congratulating Bryan on a wonderful achievement!
