NEW YORK, NY — A Skanska construction veteran has received the highest honors in civil construction for dedication and expertise in construction. Gary Almeraris, Vice President of Operations for Skanska’s East Coast civil operations, was awarded The Moles 2024 Outstanding Achievement Award.

“It is an honor to celebrate the exceptional accomplishments of Gary ... and it brings us immense pride to see [him] recognized with the industry's highest of accolades,” said Don Fusco, President & CEO, Skanska USA Civil. “We extend heartfelt congratulations on this well-deserved recognition — a testament to [his] exceptional contributions and commitment to advancing our industry.”

At The Moles’ Annual Award Dinner, Almeraris was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award and deemed a quintessential Mole for his nearly 50-year dedication to heavy construction and tunneling.

Over his 46-year career, Almeraris has played a role in many significant projects, showcasing his expertise in major tunneling and open-cut endeavors in New York City, Boston, and Washington, D.C. Notable achievements include managing SEM caverns, utility-infested open cuts, frozen ground stabilization projects, and tunnels in diverse terrains using conventional methods and TBMs. Almeraris' international experience ranges from a special assignment in the remote Indian Himalayas on the Naptha Jhakri 1,600-megawatt Dam/Tunnel project in 1994 to being a key team member on multiple projects throughout the United Kingdom, Norway, and Sweden with Skanska's international Underground group.

Almeraris also mentors young engineers entering the heavy civil industry. He actively supports initiatives such as The Moles outreach, bringing college students into the world of heavy civil construction. In 2021, Almeraris served as the President of The Moles and has been a member since 1989. He received the Underground Construction Association's Outstanding Individual Award in 2020. His life motto is, "Be part of the team, enjoy your work, and be proud of your accomplishments."
