Don has been a strong mentor of structural engineers throughout the state and has been a leader in developing structural engineering standards and best practices. He has served as a board member and president of the American Concrete Institute Indiana Chapter, board member and chair of the ACEC Indiana Vertical Committee and leader of an ad hoc industry committee that helped publish quality assurance guidelines for Indiana construction projects.
“Don Corson is one of the most respected structural engineers in the Midwest for his expertise, integrity and dedication to quality,” said American Structurepoint President Rick Conner. “Don is an excellent choice for this industry recognition.”
Don is humbled and honored to receive this award. “Structural engineers produce very serious and challenging work every day that largely goes unnoticed,” Don said. “I am most thankful to be part of a profession with so many talented, diligent professionals, and I hope through this recognition to raise awareness about the great work that all structural engineers do.”
Don is also an advocate for public safety in the built environment. He has worked with state officials and legislators to revise Indiana’s building codes and laws to improve the safety and quality of life for Hoosiers.
