    Amy J. Moore

    Flatiron Construction

    Amy J. Moore, Flatiron Construction, has been selected as the recipient of the 2022 Young Engineer of the Year Award in recognition of her excellent work as a field engineer responsible for supervising construction work on several major infrastructure projects, her leadership roles in the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Younger Member Forum, and her services as an instructor for the Fundamentals of Engineering Review Course.

    Serving as a field engineer for the construction of the Georgetown Wet Weather Treatment Station, she was responsible for planning and completing the concrete work on four buildings, managing steel erection, getting the buildings weather tight, and managing the architectural finish scopes of work. Coordinating with other trades and areas on the project, she created the pour sequence of the walls, procured formwork, and created crane pick plans for formwork installation including some near active power lines. Serving as a mentor to the summer interns, she ensured that they were developing engineering skills such as plan reading, discipline coordination, and craft management. As a member of the ASCE Younger Member Forum, she serves as President-Elect and as past chair of the Popsicle Stick Bridge competition. This is the Forum’s largest outreach event of the year. Typically, over 200 students, parents, and volunteers attend the event to watch bridges built by high school students load tested at the Museum of Flight. As chair of the event, she was responsible for writing the building code, reaching out to high schools, coordinating with the venue, organizing volunteers, and procuring prizes. She volunteered to serve as a judge for the ASCE Pacific Northwest Concrete Canoe Competition. She also volunteered her time to create practice problems and hold a review session with civil engineering students for the ASCE Fundamentals of Engineering Review Course.
