Dexheimer Appointed to ASCE National Institute
Heidi Dexheimer, project director in Atkins’ Henderson, NV, office has been appointed to the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) Utility Engineering and Surveying Institute (UESI) Board of Governors.
UESI is ASCE’s newest institute, focused on encouraging worldwide excellence in planning, design, construction, operations and asset management within the utility infrastructure and engineering surveying profession.
Reston,VA-headquartered ASCE, asce.org, sponsors nine discipline-specific institutes and technical groups with the goal of bringing volunteers together to expand civil engineering’s technical, business and professional expertise.
“Subsurface utility engineering and surveying is a field I work in every day; it’s near and dear to my heart,” says Dexheimer, who’s been with Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, for four years.
Atkins is a global design, engineering and project management consultancy with North American headquarters in Tampa FL and global headquarters in the U.K. SNC-Lavalin is a worldwide, fully integrated professional services and project management with global headquarters in Montreal, Canada and offices throughout the U.S. and the world.
“I’ve volunteered in technical leadership positions with ASCE for more than 15 years, and I’m humbled and very excited about my newest appointment,” she adds.
Dexheimer will serve a two-year term on the UESI board with fellow civil engineering practitioners who represent public and private sector organizations.
A native of Las Vegas, NV, Dexheimer is a professional engineer and water rights surveyor who has 22 years of experience in engineering management and design for large infrastructure projects in southern Nevada and other areas within the Southwestern U.S.
In addition to private-sector work, she served as civil engineer for Southern Nevada Water Authority and for the Las Vegas Valley Water District’s Engineering Design Division.
“Although my board appointment is national, the work of UESI has a global reach, which will provide me with multiple opportunities to exchange critical insight about our profession and bring those best practices home to fellow experts within Atkins,” Dexheimer adds.
