Barton Malow Wins Big at the Engineering Society of Detroit Annual Dinner

When it comes to taking on projects, we at Barton Marlow know that the key to success is our team’s winning mentality. That quality was on full display recently at the Engineering Society of Detroit (ESD) Annual Dinner, where we took home three awards. From at-large projects to individual recognitions, Barton Malow is built with the spirit of innovation and impact.

Innovating a Difference

DTE DSI project

Being recognized for hard work is always a phenomenal feeling. That’s especially the case when the recognition is for making a difference. To further reduce toxic air pollutants like mercury, arsenic and hazardous metals, we worked on project for DTE Energy to used innovative technologies like Dry Sorbent Injection (DSI) and Activated Carbon Injection (ACI) to improve outgoing air quality. The project finished under budget, on schedule and—above all—with an exceptional safety record. For the project’s success, the ESD awarded us with one of the Construction and Design Award.


Alex Ivanikiw: Making His Mark

Making a mark on an industry as big as construction is undoubtedly difficult. But in Alex Ivanikiw, Senior Vice President at Barton Malow, leadership and impact are part of the package. With over 27 years at Barton Malow and 40 years in construction and design, it’s not hard to imagine the amount of hard work he has put into the industry. Is should then come as no surprise that Alex was inducted into the ESD College of Fellows for his incredible career achievements.

At Barton Malow, we’re always keeping one eye on the future. Well, thanks to Project Manager Lauren Bukowski, the future is at our doorstep. A homegrown talent, Lauren graduated from Lawrence Technological University with a degree in Civil Engineering. She then went on to get her Masters of Business Administration in 2012. Lauren got her start in the industry early with a Learning Practicum for Students internship with Barton Malow. Her continued passion to lead, plan and execute serve as a testament to her recognition as this year’s Outstanding Young Engineer of the Year.
