ST. PAUL, MN — Mike Heuer, Braun Intertec Vice President and Principal Engineer, was recently honored with the Distinguished Achievement Award at the 70th Geotechnical Engineering Conference at the University of Minnesota by the Conference Committee.

This award recognizes an individual who is at least 50 years old, has practiced engineering in the state of Minnesota for at least 20 years, and has made outstanding contributions to the advancement of the fields of geotechnics or geotechnical engineering. Nominations are accepted for this award on an annual basis with only one individual (if any) being granted this honor each year. The most recent awards were presented in 2017, 2014, and 2009.

Heuer graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1978 with a Bachelor of Civil Engineering and immediately joined Braun Intertec. He has spent his career with Braun Intertec and has worked on a range of retail, institutional, commercial, and public projects, including many of the new and renovated University of Minnesota buildings such as Walter Library, Northrop Memorial Auditorium, Tate Hall, and Huntington Bank Stadium.

He has served on the University of Minnesota’s Civil, Environmental Geo-Engineering Professional Advisory Board and has participated in many of the department’s mentoring programs. Through his philanthropic activities, the University of Minnesota has been able to renovate the soils mechanics laboratory and is currently developing a new, first of its kind, outreach program to promote the field of civil engineering to the younger members of society.
