Dan Kerr, president of Philadelphia-area  mechanical construction, service, and energy services firm Burns Mechanical, is serving on the jury of the annual student architectural engineering competition held by the Architectural Engineering Institute (AEI) of ASCE, the American Society of Civil Engineers.

The AEI initiated the student competition specifically for accredited architectural engineering programs to showcase the value of collaboration, competition, and peer review, all of which are important in the development of designs in the professional world. A grant provided by the Charles Pankow Foundation has helped to make the competition possible.

“I’m very flattered to have the opportunity to rub elbows with future construction industry giants,” said Kerr, a graduate of Penn State’s architectural engineering program.

Teams of students will present their work at the AEI National Student Conference later this month at Drexel University in Philadelphia.  The jury consists of the following professionals:

Structural: David W. Bernhardt, P.E.; Lindsay L. Hu, P.E., LEED AP

Integration: Eric Cole, AIA, LEED AP; Charles DeLisio, AIA, P.E, LEED AP

Mechanical: Dan Kerr, P.E.; Joseph Dilenno, P.E., LEED AP BD+C

Construction: Gregory Dunkle, LEED AP, CCM; Shane A. Boyer
