Dawson’s Lloyd Caldwell receives lifetime leadership award for “exemplary” public service

Each year, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) honors career achievements in construction, design, government, management and education. Dawson & Associates is honored that our colleague Mr. Lloyd Caldwell received one of this year’s ASCE Opal awards for his “exemplary [and] demonstrated leadership of public sector projects and programs.”

Lloyd joined our firm this year after a 40-year career with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that included nearly a decade as an Army senior civilian overseeing Corps engineering, construction, environmental remediation and real estate, has joined our firm.

For eight years, Lloyd was Director of Military Programs at Corps headquarters leading a budget influence of some $35 billion and a worldwide workforce of over 36,000 professionals. He also frequently led Corps of Engineer project teams on missions including civil works construction, military facilities engineering and construction, environmental remediation, and disaster preparedness and response.

The ASCE presented the award this month in Anaheim, CA at its annual OPAL Awards Gala honoring outstanding civil engineering leaders whose lifetime accomplishments contributed to the creation of thriving businesses and the local economies they serve.

Lloyd joins four other D&A colleagues as Opal Award recipients -- retired flag officers Lt. Gen. Bob Flowers in 2003, Lt. Gen. Hank Hatch in 2006, the late Maj. Gen. Bo Temple in 2013, and Brig. Gen. Rick Capka in 2014.

Congratulations, Lloyd! Your lifetime of service truly made a difference and it’s an honor to have you on the D&A team.

Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Rick Stevens

Senior Vice President

A former Deputy Commanding General of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Rick joined our firm in 2018.
