The 2017 Association of Consulting Engineering Companies - Saskatchewan (ACEC-SK) Young Professional Award recipient is Michael Walker, P.Eng., PE, PMP

Born in Yorkton, SK, Walker graduated from Winston Knoll in Regina and received his civil engineering degree from the University of Alberta.

An enthusiastic and focused young engineer, Michael Walker has earned recognition throughout the country for his tenacious approach to every project, educational opportunity, mentoring and volunteer effort that comes his way.

Recruited by McElhanney, Walker relocated to Regina in 2015 to open a second office in the province. He quickly expanded McElhanney’s one man office to a sought after professional team of six.

Clients, peers and the McElhanney team soon recognized this young engineer’s skill and abilities.  He played significant roles in two of Saskatchewan’s largest projects: the Warman and Martensville Interchanges in Saskatoon; and the Regina Bypass project.  Both these projects required tight deadline targets that were met by Walker.

A strong promoter of the consulting industry, Walker has been involved with ACEC-SK, CEA, ACEC and FIDIC, taking a leadership role on numerous committees.  He is currently a member of the ACEC-SK Young Professional Group, the Transportation Committee and an elected member of the Transportation Executive Committee.

He was recently awarded the 2018 Allen D. Williams Scholarship at the CCE Gala Event in Ottawa. 

Michael Walker has the capacity to pack a lot into a day, including community involvement: recruiting sponsorship for Guide Dog training, partnering with an elementary school to introduce STEM subjects to students and participating in numerous charity fund raising activities. 

In all facets of his professional and personal life he strives to be a contributor. The future for Michael Walker, consulting engineer is most promising.
