PHILADELPHIA, PA – Pennoni Associates, an award-winning multidiscipline engineering, science, and design consulting firm, is pleased to announce that Kazi Hassan, a project engineer within the transportation division, was awarded the 2015 Eastern Region Outstanding Young Civil Engineer of the Year in the Private Sector, by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).

The award recognizes a member of ASCE’s Younger Member Forum (YMF) – a sector of ASCE for members who are age 35 and younger – who has demonstrated leadership potential in private sector civil engineering. One member is selected from each of the nine ASCE regions. 

Hassan joined ASCE and its YMF in 2005 and has held numerous positions since, including president and membership secretary. He was nominated by current ASCE Philadelphia YMF president and Pennoni staff engineer, Drew Sirianni, for the recognition. 

“[Kazi] is a natural leader and freely shares his experiences, knowledge and leadership with others to help them grow,” said Sirianni. “He is intrinsically motivated to help others.”
Hassan received the award during a ceremony at the 2015 ASCE Eastern Regional Younger Member Council on January 10 in Miami, FL. “This is a big milestone in my engineering career,” said Hassan. “I feel very honored and blessed that I was able to get this award less than 10 years into my career.” 

Hassan has been with Pennoni since 2006 and is based in the Philadelphia office. Most recently, he has completed design work for the replacement of seven bridges over Interstate 676 in Philadelphia for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. The project will reshape the layout of the city, working near landmarks such as Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the Franklin Institute and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
