BOSTON– The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named Daniel O. Roop, PE, of Tighe & Bond as a winner of their 2021 Young Professional Award.
Roop is an Environmental Engineer and Project Manager at Tighe & Bond, where he assists communities in prioritizing risk-based capital improvements for their water and wastewater infrastructure. In addition to working on a wide variety of projects, he has also helped over fifteen Massachusetts communities secure more than $2M in total grant funding through MassDEP and the Mass Clean Water Trust Asset Management Grant Program. He has presented this work at several industry conferences and workshops, and champions asset management within the firm.
Roop serves as Chair of the New England Water Environment Association (NEWEA) Asset Management Committee and past chair of the Committee Member Appreciation Committee. He is also active in the American Water Works Association (AWWA) as a Member of the Standards Committee on Biosolids and as a Young Professional Member of the New England Water Works Association (NEWWA). He has participated in seven Pan-Mass Challenges, personally raising over $40,000 for Dana Farber Cancer Institute and is now training for his second Boston Marathon to help support the Boston Sports Museum’s Boston vs. Bullies anti-bullying program. Roop is also a five-time Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition Against the Tide participant and donor. He deeply believes in the impact of charitable work and hopes his participation will inspire others to do the same, including his two young daughters.
The 2021 Engineering Excellence Awards were recently announced and were celebrated at the virtual ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala. The awards celebrate innovation, ingenuity, and excellence in engineering achievement.
“We congratulate Daniel on this well deserved recognition for his achievements on the job and in the community,” said Scott A.
