The National Academy of Construction is a select organization of industry leaders whose professional careers demonstrate outstanding contributions to the effectiveness of the engineering and construction industry. Established in 2000, the National Academy of Construction today has over 150 distinguished members from every segment of the industry who represent the wide variety of interests in engineering and construction projects—owners, contractors, government, the legal profession, communications, and academia.
The goal of the Academy is to recognize an assemblage of acknowledged construction industry leaders and honor them through election to the Academy. The election of members to the Academy follows a peer-nomination and peer-selection process that creates a select candidate list. New members are then elected out of that candidate list by the entire Academy.
Construction, one of the largest U.S. industries, plays an integral role in helping Americans attain one of the highest standards of living in the world. The National Academy of Construction has as its purpose to recognize the leaders of the industry, and to utilize their knowledge, experience, and talents in support of the industry and the nation.
