Mark V. Holland, P.E., chief engineer with Paxton & Vierling Steel Co., was recently named a recipient of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Special Achievement Award. This award recognizes individuals who have demonstrated notable achievements in structural steel design, construction, research or education. It honors those who have made a positive and substantial impact on the structural steel design and construction industry.
Holland was lauded for his leadership in interoperability since the very beginning of AISC's effort in 1997. He has provided countless hours of volunteer work and leadership on CIS/2, EDI, and interoperability, and has brought attention to this crucial subject through his committee work and conference presentations. In addition, he and his firm have served as leaders in the practical implementation of BIM.
