Ones to Watch: Job Captains, Allie Roberson and Marsha Robinson on the Commercial Observer’s 2017 Top 20 Young A.E.C. Professionals under 35 List

Oct 11, 2017 | Community

Many professionals in the industries of architecture, engineering and construction (A.E.C.) knew from the time they were in high school, or even earlier, that AEC would be their destiny.

Their individual experiences—family members in the business or seeing neighborhoods transform before their eyes—helped them choose between the three industries. In today’s digital world though, there is a fourth path: virtual design and construction (VDC). And it’s this fourth option that actually ties the three classic fields together by allowing the architects, engineers and construction managers to work on projects digitally before building the projects.

In Commercial Observer’s second-annual look at the top young professionals in the A.E.C. business, we honor a mix of rising stars that are behind the designs, the structural functions and ultimately the construction of the largest projects in the five boroughs, from the Second Avenue subway to Hudson Yards. But we also recognized a few trailblazers on the VDC side, people who became experts in the construction method after learning one of the three tried-and-true trades.—Liam La Guerre
