Denver – US Head Office

Denver, CO (February 2, 2016) – PCL Construction is pleased to announce that five of its employees have been recognized on Engineering News-Record’s Top 20 under 40 list, representing the California, Mountain States, Southeast, and Southwest regions. These lists highlight 20 individuals each, who are younger than 40 and exemplify what it means to be the “Best of the Best” in their construction and design careers, the industry as a whole, and in their respective communities. 

Eric Chavez, project manager for PCL’s Transportation Group, is a desired mentor on project sites owing to his breadth of knowledge and passion for the industry, and remains a resource to his mentees long after a project’s completion. Eric continues to be a wealth of knowledge for tackling technically complex projects, such as the design-build replacement of the $128 million Lake Barkley Bridge in Cadiz, Kentucky.

Lourdes Lopez is a project engineer for PCL’s Water Infrastructure Group and the president of the Greater Phoenix Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction. She is dedicated to advancing women in the construction industry, with her biggest piece of advice being to “try something that intimidates you—it has the potential to mold you into a better version of yourself.” Lourdes is currently working on improving the efficiency of the solids handling facility at the $22 million Union Hills Water Treatment Plant in Phoenix, Arizona.

Lucas Mallory manages PCL’s Special Projects division in Denver, which focuses on delivering projects valued from $100,000 to $10 million. In his first two years as manager, Lucas grew the division three-fold, expanding into new markets and adding clients. He is best known for his positive attitude and strength in leadership, and has earned the prestigious company-wide Robert Stollery Construction Leadership Award, which recognizes promising management staff across PCL.

As manager of PCL’s Special Projects division in California, Thai Nguyen’s innovative approach to solving challenges and executing construction plans has positioned him as one of PCL’s emerging young leaders. He remains instrumental in the success of future engineers, and was recognized as Mentor of the Year by the Architecture Construction Engineering (ACE) Mentor Program in Los Angeles.

As senior project manager for PCL’s Orlando office, Jeremy Voss has worked his way through multiple hotel renovations and recently managed the overhaul of a former phosphate mine into a luxury 350,000-square-foot lodge, golf course, and conference center known as Streamsong Resort, recognized as ENR’s Best-of-the-Best hospitality project of 2014. Jeremy empowers his team members by trusting, listening, and motivating them and is a lead mentor for Orlando’s ACE Mentor Program.
