Noteworthy: Linamen leads a design team that won a National Recognition Award at the American Council of Engineering Companies' 2013 Engineering Excellence Awards. The Butler City-based team designed Cornell University's Physical Sciences Building using top-of-the-line standards for sustainable design, according to Stantec.

Age: 61

Residence: Butler Township

Occupation: Linamen is a vice president at Stantec, which is headquartered in Edmonton. He leads the company's Mid-Atlantic region engineering team out of the company's Butler office and is the mechanical technical lead for the company's building division.

Education: Linamen received a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering in 1975 from General Motors Institute, which is now Kettering University in Michigan. He also did post-graduate research in engineering at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, he said.

Background: Linamen moved back to the Pittsburgh area in 1979. He was the lead engineer on the David L Lawrence Convention Center, Downtown.

Quote: “The award was kind of secondary. The building is one of the top buildings on the Cornell campus. ... This is a really striking building that also happens to perform exceptionally. A lot of it is just clever, creative design. We understood how the building used energy and came up with clever ways to reduce it.”
