HDR’s Ching receives the ASCE award
Troy Ching, a project engineer in HDR’s Maui office, is a recipient of this year’s Edmund Friedman Young Engineer Award for Professional Achievement.
There are no more than five recipients named each year by the American Society of Civil Engineers for this national award. The awards were presented at the ASCE annual Convention in New York City on Oct. 11-14.
Ching works on assignments throughout Hawaii and the Pacific region. A professional engineer with more than nine years of industry experience, he leads the day-to-day operations in the Maui office. In 2010, Ching’s technical expertise played a key role with NCB Project GM9-862 Well No. 8 Replacement in Guam, which received an exceptional evaluation rating and an award from Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Pacific.
He holds a bachelor of science degree in civil engineering.
Nominator and HDR federal manager Tony Lau said, “Troy has demonstrated significant technical competence and exhibited excellent professional judgment and leadership in the development of younger engineers’ attitudes to the profession. With these excellent characteristics, great attitude and model work ethic, we have a tendency to assign Troy the more difficult and/or complex projects.”
