Sept. 30, 2009
ANCHORAGE, Alaska – CRW Engineering Group, LLC is pleased to announce that two members of its civil engineering team, Dave Diller, PE, and Micah Schoming, PE, recently received LEED AP® certification. The certifications allow CRW to offer Alaska clients sustainable civil engineering design services.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the U.S. Green Building Council’s internationally recognized certification system for green buildings. According to the Council’s Web site, the certification provides assurance that a building or community was designed and built using strategies that improve and foster stewardship of resources and sensitivity to environmental impacts.
Diller and Schoming are CRW’s first LEED-certified designers. Diller has been with CRW for 20 years and serves as a project manager and design engineer. He specializes in design for site development, building layout, roads and trails, signing and road striping, water distribution, sewer collection systems and storm drainage.
Schoming has 11 years of Alaska civil engineering design experience. He provides commercial and industrial site design, building layout, storm drainage, site grading, sanitary sewer and utilities design and layout. Diller and Schoming are both University of Alaska Fairbanks civil engineering graduates.
“LEED certification gives us authority and ability to promote and facilitate green design and allows us to work side by side with the architectural community, emphasizing environmentally friendly, energy-saving, green building techniques, civil design and construction practices,” Diller said.
CRW now has 22 registered professional engineers and a total staff of 62. Celebrating 28 years in business, the consulting firm offers civil and electrical engineering, construction administration, and surveying and mapping services for water and sewer, transportation, trails, solid waste, water quality, bulk fuel, and site design projects throughout Alaska.
