The board of directors of Landmark Science & Engineering, a leading regional consulting firm specializing in site/civil engineering, environmental sciences and land surveying, is pleased to announce achievements by two members of its engineering staff. Keith A. Rudy, P.E., LEED AP, a firm principal, has been awarded the 2017 DAPE Distinguished Service Award by Delaware Association of Professional Engineers. Dakota Laidman‐Murray has passed the Professional Engineering exam in April and is now a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Delaware.
Keith Rudy, P.E., LEED AP is a registered professional engineer with 25 years of civil/site engineering experience, director of Sciences & Water Resources, and a principal of the firm. He has served as member of the DAPE Law Enforcement/Ethics Committee for 13 years, since 2004, and has participated in numerous investigations. The DAPE Distinguished Service Award is presented annually to a committee member who has exhibited exemplary service to DAPE and the engineering community. Keith said he was “honored to be the 2017 DAPE Distinguished Service Award recipient” and “humbled to be included in this list of impressive professional engineers.” Past recipients include: Eugene B. Snell, Robert A. Chagnon, J.G.S. Billingsley, Ana E. Diaz, Robert W. McClure, Daniel Koffler, Arkan Say, James S. Davidson, and Keith R. Kooker.
Dakota Laidman‐Murray, P.E. passed the professional engineering exam in April, 2017 and is now a registered Delaware Professional Engineer. She has worked at Landmark Science & Engineering since graduating Cum Laude from the University of Delaware in 2012 with a Bachelor of Environmental Engineering degree (with Water Resources and Water Quality concentration and a minor in Civil Engineering). At UD, Dakota was awarded the 2012 Hagerty Environmental Undergraduate Award for demonstrating outstanding professional and research potential in Environmental Engineering.
Dakota is quick to say that “stormwater management design” is the type of engineering she most enjoys “because stormwater design calculations can be very challenging ‐ and that’s what makes it fun…and when the project is finished, you get a real sense of satisfaction and accomplishment that you can enjoy.” Mrs. Laidman‐Murray was recently named to chair the ACEC Delaware Education/Public Relations committee, which awarded $4,300 in two engineering scholarships in May to Alex Menzer and Ntseesang Ndingwan.
