Jason Reigstad Named Engineering News-Record (ENR) Top 25 Newsmaker of 2017


Warning About Potentially Dangerous Parking Garages

Jason Reigstad, Vice President of Special Projects at Reigstad Engineers, Inc., is the only engineer in Minnesota to be selected as one of the top newsmakers of 2017 through the national publication, Engineering News-Record. Jason and other newsmakers will be honored at the 2018 ENR Award of Excellence Celebration at the New York Hilton Midtown in New York, N.Y. next week.

Jason was selected for this prestigious honor for his investigative work regarding a possible danger hiding in over 100 precast concrete parking garages across the United States as there have been failures in at least three garages. The issue lies within a problematic product these garages have in common called C-Grid, a grid of high-strength carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (FRP).

Individuals for top newsmakers of the year are selected by ENR editors and chosen for their outstanding accomplishments, exceeding expectations that benefits the industry and the public.
