Seth Rogge Makes ENR’s 2014 Top 20 Under 40

March 10, 2014

Last month, our very own Seth Rogge was recognized by Engineering News Record (ENR) Mid-Atlantic magazine on their prestigious “Top 20 Under 40” Engineers List. Issued in the February 17, 2014 issue, the list is compiled through an annual entry process from candidates who work in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware and Pennsylvania.  Selections are based on multiple criteria—such as work experience, industry leadership activities, improvements to the built environment and community service—by an independent jury.

Seth, an Associate and Director of Building Information Modeling (BIM), has been with SK&A for over 10 years. Located in the firm’s Maryland office, he has managed a diverse range of projects, including multi-story office and residential buildings, hospitals, education facilities and parking garages.  Seth’s current project workload includes the Storey Park mixed-use development on the former Greyhound Bus Station site, the Atlantic Plumbing Site residential projects on the U Street corridor and the 501 K Street Office Building, all located in DC.  Other notable projects include The Ascent at Springhill Station, Founders Square residential building, The Louis at 14th & U, Duball Rockville Town Center mixed-use project, and the award winning NRUCFC Headquarters, for which he published an article in Modern Steel Construction magazine. 

In addition to his duties at SK&A, Seth is also completing a Ph.D. dissertation on “Ultra-High Performance Concrete” at the University of Maryland.  A member of the American Concrete Institute (ACI), he previously received an award for “Outstanding Research in Concrete Materials” from the association.  Seth is also active in other professional organizations, including the Washington Building Congress (WBC), the REVIT DC User Group and is a guest researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology.  A father of two boys, ages 3 and 5, Seth resides with his wife and children in Clarksburg, Maryland.
