American Structurepoint President and Chief Operating Officer Rick Conner has received the prestigious Consulting Engineer of the Year Award from ACEC Indiana. The annual award recognizes an individual who has made a significant contribution to consulting engineering in Indiana.

“I truly believe that this award recognizes what our people have achieved for over 52 years as a company.” - Rick Conner.
Under his leadership, the company has won over 150 design awards, been consistently recognized as a Top 500 Design Firm by Engineering News-Record, and named the 2018 Midwest Design Firm of the Year by ENR Midwest.

“I truly believe that this award recognizes what our people have achieved for over 52 years as a company,” Rick said. “Consulting engineering is the coolest profession ever. You have opportunities every day to make dreams become reality to improve communities and quality of life. It doesn’t get any better than that.”
