ENR praised William Wallace, a chemical engineer, for his work as the primary designer of the Envision™ Sustainable Infrastructure Rating System.
It said that his technical skill and zeal in helping industry firms and clients determine if they're "doing the right project" laid the foundation for Envision, a unique rating tool that practitioners are embracing to rate sustainability across many types of infrastructure for the first time.
Envision takes a more holistic view of infrastructure projects, using a multi-tiered, credit-award approach based on resource use, operational resilience, eco-system restoration, life-cycle costs and return on investment, among other measures.
ENR says that Wallace
was key to integrating the systems to produce a more functional and less complex tool.
Wallace graduated from Clarkson in 1964 with a bachelor of science degree in chemical engineering.
He has been a member of Clarkson's Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering Advisory Council.
"Carl Mack and Bill Wallace have each made key contributions to Clarkson's education, outreach and research enterprise," said Clarkson University President Tony Collins.
