Walter P Moore proudly announces that Gregg Taylor, P.E., S.E. (above, right) has been named the 2016 recipient of the Javier F. Horvilleur Outstanding Young Structural Engineer Award. The Horvilleur Award is presented annually to one young structural engineer at the firm who has best exemplified excellence in technical design, client service, and business acumen. The award is named for and is in appreciative memory of Javier F. Horvilleur, P.E. (1954-2002), who was an inspirational leader-engineer in our firm for over two decades.

Gregg was nominated by Walter P Moore’s Blair Hanuschak, a Senior Principal and Managing Director of the Washington, D.C. office, who cited his strong technical skills, incredible work ethic, and commitment to the success of the firm. “He gives 110% on everything he does, is incredibly conscientious, and has become an excellent team leader in delivering some of the most important projects in the firm.”

Gregg was selected on the basis of rave reviews from those who work with him, each citing stories that highlight his technical skills, his passion to become a successful consulting engineer, and his proven ability to keep clients extremely happy. He is lauded for his “outstanding commitment to extraordinary client experience,” which he demonstrated by re-locating himself and his wife to California for a year to better serve the client on an important project.

In addition to his project contributions, Gregg has served as the D.C. representative to the firm’s prestigious Design Management Team as a trained and highly effective mentor for younger engineers, and as a leader in the company’s ongoing migration to full digital delivery.

An Associate and structural engineer in our D.C. office (temporarily relocated to LA), Gregg joined Walter P Moore in 2012 after two years’ practical experience with a precast subcontractor. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Virginia Tech and his Master of Engineering from Penn State University. He is the 14th recipient of the esteemed Horvilleur Award.

Fun fact about Gregg: He became an engineer “to have the ability to literally shape the world around us and create something memorable that can stand the test of time.” Gregg says if he hadn’t become an engineer, he would have been a doctor.

Congratulations, Gregg!
