OMAHA, Neb. — HDR’s Andre “Andy” Lauzier has been appointed to serve as the American Council of Engineering Companies Transportation Committee chairman for the 2022-23 term.
Lauzier, HDR’s transportation planning and design director, was selected by the ACEC leadership and announced at the annual ACEC convention.
Lauzier will bring his vast transportation expertise to this influential committee, which promotes ACEC’s transportation legislative work. As the committee chair, he will help shape ACEC’s positions on transportation issues at the Federal and state level.
In particular, the committee’s goals for the 2022-23 term include helping ensure the successful implementation of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and monitoring upcoming trends, including workforce challenges, 3D modeling, connected/automated vehicles, sustainability and practical design standards.
“With the passage and implementation of IIJA, there are many challenges and opportunities for implementing new projects,” Lauzier said. “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with ACEC leadership in D.C. and across the country to help shape the future of transportation infrastructure.”
Lauzier’s 40 years of experience in the transportation industry covers a wide variety of markets and services, ranging from highway planning and design to post design, and construction engineering and inspection services. Insights gained from a diverse background in traditional planning and design services as well as emerging technologies will serve him well when it comes to addressing the many challenges and opportunities to help deliver infrastructure projects to owners and the public.
Lauzier has been deeply involved in ACEC since 1992, where he started with the Florida chapter and went on to chair several committees and subcommittees during his tenure. He served as the chair of the Florida chapter’s transportation committee in 2020 and currently still sits on the board of directors. From 2001-2003, he additionally served on the ACEC Georgia board of directors. In 2018, Lauzier was honored with the Ben Watts Partnership Award.
