Parsons is pleased to announce that Brian Pourciau, Senior Engineer and Structural Team Leader, has been named by Engineering News-Record MidAtlantic (ENR MidAtlantic) as a Top Young Professional for 2019.
Brian rose quickly to his position at Parsons at the age of 26 due to his excellent technical and team leadership abilities. He manages a multi-million-dollar portfolio of design projects spanning multi-disciplinary areas of the transportation industry and leads a team of engineering and technical professionals. His project experience includes the 2,000-ft-long Southeast/Southwest Freeway in Washington, DC; the $409 million design-build for the I-64 Southside Widening and High-Rise Bridge in Virginia; and the development of engineering and inspection solutions for the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.
Brian has mastered many technological tools that accelerate production and improve project delivery. He improved the efficiency and provided cost savings in CAD drawing production by implementing strategies that streamlined the drawing process, reduced review time, and ensured CAD standards were met.
He helped found and became the captain of Parsons’ first team to compete in the international business competition, Enginuity, which consists of more than 200 teams of six participants competing to build the strongest construction firm in the world. He has led two different teams to three top 10 finishes as well as helped grow the competition within Parsons.
Brian holds a bachelor’s degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Princeton University, and is a registered professional engineer in the District of Columbia. He is a volunteer member of the board for the Northern Virginia-East Odyssey of the Mind Chapter, an active member of the American Society for Civil Engineers Capitol Chapter, and a volunteer tutor/mentor for the Nationals Youth Baseball Academy in Washington, DC.
ENR MidAtlantic‘s Top Young Professionals must be under the age of 40 and are selected based on their work experience, industry leadership activities, improvements to the built environment, and service to the community.
