It is National Engineers Week and BBFM Engineers has always been involved in some aspect of the event, from doing school talks, helping with the kick off bowl-a-thon, serving on (or chairing) the organizing committee, chairing the Engineering Excellence Awards, and serving as chair of the Engineer of the Year Committee. The latter position is awarded to the most recent Engineer of the Year. The Engineer of the Year is selected based on recent and past projects, recent and past publications, service to the profession, professional service to the community, and volunteer work unrelated to the profession. This week we will highlight the members of BBFM Engineers who have received that honor.

Gregory Latreille, Principal, was nominated in 2010, 2017, and 2019 by the Anchorage Chapter of the Alaska Society of Professional Engineers. The latter resulted in his Engineer of the Year award. He was born and raised in Malone, New York, but moved to Anchorage in 2005 after receiving his Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering at Renssellaer Polytechnic Institute. His engineering experience in his sixteen years with BBFM Engineers includes Upper Tanana Regional Health Clinic in Tok, the Science Support Center and IT & Communications Facility at McMurdo Station in Antarctica, dozens of earthquake assessments after the November 2018 earthquake, Kennecott Mine Concentration Mill Building Restoration, Fairbanks International Airport Renovation and Addition, and the UAA Alaska Airlines Center, among many others. He has been the State President for the Alaska Society of Professional Engineers, served in the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) House of Delegates, was NSPE Western and Pacific Region Chair, and served as a Western and Pacific Region Director on the NSPE Board. He has been a member of the Structural Engineers Association of Alaska (SEAAK) Snow Load Committee that developed design snow loads for 50 communities for use in the ASCE 7-2022 design code and is currently serving as the SEAAK state Vice President. He has been a participant in the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics and has donated six gallons of his own blood to the Alaska Blood Bank.
Since receiving his Engineer of the Year award last February, his projects have included a complete seismic retrofit for FTW 410 Barracks Building 1001 at Ft. Wainwright, Aquarian Charter School Renovations, and the Napakiak K-12 Replacement School. He has served as the Chair of the Engineer of the Year Committee and will be announcing his replacement on Saturday during the virtual Engineer’s Week banquet.

Another BBFM Engineer rural clinic.
BBFM Engineers did the structural design of this clinic for Architects Alaska and Norton Sound Health Corporation. This is one of many rural clinics we have designed or remodeled.
