Michael A. Grubb

The American Institute of Steel Construction, Chicago, has named Michael A. Grubb, executive director of M.A. Grubb & Assoc. LLC, as winner of its J. Lloyd Kimbrough Award. Grubb is only the 13th person to receive this award, which recognizes pre-eminent steel designers, since its establishment in 1941.

Grubb has authored or co-authored 40 publications covering all aspects of steel girder bridge design—research work that consultant Karl H. Frank, PE, PhD, noted would satisfy tenure requirements at most universities. “Mike’s publication record is extraordinary for a nonacademic,” he noted in a nomination.

“It’s hard to overstate Mike’s contribution to American infrastructure over his career,” said AISC President Charles J. Carter, SE, PE, PhD. “He’s been a relentless contributor, and nobody can communicate the big picture and the details behind it better. AISC is proud to recognize his accomplishments.”
