Facade Engineer Nominated ASCE Director of Community Outreach

Congratulations to Facade Engineer, Brenna Henry on her installation as Director of Community Outreach at the Lower Hudson Valley Branch of ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) Met Section!

Brenna started as an intern in our Building Envelope Group and was hired full-time facade engineer right after receiving her Bachelor of Engineering degree in Civil Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology in 2018.

Specializing in consultation, design and inspection of facades, she has been a part of building up some of the most iconic projects in and around NYC, including the TWA Hotel Renovation, LaGuardia Airport’s Concourse B, the Virgin Hotel in NoMad, Design of the Highline’s West Stair, Columbia Business School and the Marriott International Headquarters in Maryland.  Check out some of the other stunning building envelope work she has been a part of on our Facade Engineering page.

Brenna has been giving back to her community in countless ways, making her a great asset to the ASCE Met Section as they continue to reach and bring a younger demographic into the engineering field. Her local involvement includes:

  • Academic advisement through the Liberty Partnership Program to help decrease dropout rates by advising students on college applications and college life, and helping them with their homework, studying and time management skills.
  • Mentoring her alma mater high school robotics team to victory in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) robotics competition that aims to give students real-world engineering experience in a fun and collaborative environment.
  • Participated in various STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Awareness panels, answering engineering questions students had for the American Association of University Women (AAUW) and New York State Society of Professional Engineers (NYSSPE)
  • Motivating students interested in engineering through her volunteer work at the annual Tri-State Engineering EXPO
  • and more
