2018 Young Professional Award Winner
Congratulations to Aaron Grote, for being the 2018 winner of the Nebraska Young Professional Award.
Young Omaha Engineer Snares Top ACEC Nebraska Honor
Aaron Grote, PE, professional engineer for Omaha-headquartered Lamp Rynearson, has been selected as the recipient of the 2018 ACEC (American Council of Engineering Companies) Nebraska “Young Professional of the Year” award.
A senior project engineer with a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Nebraska, Grote enjoys the mix of assignments and the impact those projects have on the community such as housing, safe drinking water, parks, and sanitary sewers. Noteworthy clients include Village of Boys Town, the City of Omaha and Celebrity Homes.
A noted community volunteer who is committed to numerous civic and philanthropic organizations and events, Grote is the current president of the Design Build Institute of America (DBIA) Nebraska Chapter, a member of the CRE (Commercial Real Estate) Summit Planning Committee, and a co-leader of Lamp Rynearson’s Early Career Professionals. He has volunteered for the Food Bank for the Heartland and Habitat for Humanity of Omaha’s build events, and area park/trail cleanup days. With a 14-year career in engineering, Grote has volunteered his energy and time both within and outside of his firm in civic and industry organizations.
“As project delivery methods evolve, it is critical that engineers be kept up-to-date regarding new data and information to better prepare us for the future of our industry. I’m fortunate to be able to see projects I designed built in the real world. Seeing the impacts of my work is awesome. I’m part of a team, of course, but I know I’ve contributed to change that matters,” said Grote.
Lamp Rynearson is a professional engineering, landscape architecture and surveying services firm with headquarters in the greater Omaha area since 1959. The firm has four office locations with 160 employees, and is an ENR Top 500 Engineering Firm.
