The Jury summarized Jessicas’s contributions to our industry as, “Jessica Mandrick relishes the opportunity to apply her structural engineering skills to a host of innovative building projects. They include vertical enlargement of the New York City Rescue Mission by reinforcing the existing building to double the number of floors while it remained in use as a shelter. Other projects include the redevelopment of an 835,000 sf 1960s-era office tower with new building systems, redesigned lobby plaza, and restored exterior, and the Yale Peabody Museum renovation and expansion program. In addition to providing structural engineering expertise to numerous art exhibits, including Guggenheim Museum installations, Mandrick seeks to create safer and more resilient buildings along waterfronts and other areas vulnerable to sea-level rise. She participates on several committees charged with improving New York City and national building codes. Mandrick also is a member of several American Society of Civil Engineers standards committees, including one tasked with the first major overhaul of flood load provisions in more than 20 years.” GMS alumna Jennifer Lan, now practicing law, was a member of ENR New York’s 2014 Class of 20 Under 40.
