Engineering News-Record (ENR) has named William A. (Bill) Wallace, a chemical engineer and member of ISSP's Board of Directors, a “Top 25 Newsmaker” for his work as the primary designer of the Envision™ Sustainable Infrastructure Rating System.

 

Envision is a unique rating tool that the design and construction industry is embracing to rate sustainability across many types of infrastructure for the first time. Envision takes a more holistic view of infrastructure projects, using a multi-tiered, credit-award approach based on resource use, operational resilience, eco-system restoration, life-cycle costs and return on investment, among other measures.

 

The editors of ENR select honorees based on news stories the magazine has published in the last year. There are no applications or interviews for the honor. The magazine’s editors select the recipients they believe have made the biggest impact on the industry and the public over the previous year.

 

Congratulations Bill!
