The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Baton Rouge Branch recently honored GeoEngineers’ Principal Geotechnical Engineer Charlie L. Eustis, PE, with its 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award. The honor recognizes Eustis’s professional achievement in civil engineering and his character, integrity and technical competence.
Eustis has worked for 29 years with GeoEngineers and its predecessor company, Louis J. Capozzoli & Associates (LJC&A), in Baton Rouge, earning national recognition for his coastal restoration and shoreline protection engineering expertise.
David P. Sauls, PE, chairman of the board and senior principal in GeoEngineers’ Baton Rouge office said, “We’re not surprised by this recognition of Charlie. He has been highly involved with ASCE throughout his 40-year engineering career, and he is one of our best technical resources, especially when it comes to coastal engineering.”
Receiving the ASCE Baton Rouge Lifetime Achievement Award means Eustis is now nominated for the ASCE Louisiana Section’s 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award. This would be the second time Eustis would receive a double honor from ASCE’s state and local sections, previously receiving their 2009 Outstanding Civil Engineer awards.
Starting as an active student member of the ASCE in the early 1970s, Eustis continued his involvement by working on several committees and holding every office within the Baton Rouge Branch. He has also served as president and board member of the ASCE Louisiana Section, receiving the ASCE President’s Medal in 2009 for his work on the board.
