Mike Braden, Louisville District Olmsted Division Chief, was recently recognized in the Engineering News Record (ENR) magazine as one of the 25 Top Newsmakers of 2017.
According to ENR, this award recognizes individuals who have served the best interests of the construction industry and the public. While the nominees come from every market sector and represent many professions, the winners all have three things in common: they innovate, they overcome challenges, and their accomplishments offer benefits that will have an impact beyond their own companies or institutions.
Braden accepted this prestigious award April 5, 2018, in New York at ENR’s awards banquet. Mike Braden developed, staffed and gained approval of a construction plan that was successful in reaching project completion four years earlier than expected and $330 million below its 2013 budgeted cost. This is an outstanding achievement by Mike Braden, the Olmsted team and many others.
