PCI 2010 Medal of Honor awarded to Helmuth Wilden
The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute awarded Helmuth Wilden, founder of Hilton Head, S.C.-based Wilden Enterprises Inc., the organization’s the 2010 Medal of Honor at its 56th Awards Breakfast during the 2010 PCI Annual Convention & Exhibition and Bridge Conference outside Washington, D.C.
Wilden, editor of the recently released seventh edition of the PCI Design Handbook: Precast and Prestressed Concrete, has served in numerous capacities for nearly 40 years.
Before starting his current company in 2005, Wilden founded H. Wilden and Associates in 1978 as a one-person, precast/prestressed concrete engineering and drafting operation, which grew steadily into one of the leading specialty-engineering consultants in the industry.
Prior to that, Wilden held the positions of vice president of engineering for Universal Concrete Products, general manager of the New Jersey office of Thomas A. Hanson & Associates, chief engineer for The Formigli Corp., and structural design engineer for United Engineers and Constructors Inc.
Wilden, a PCI Professional Member since 1974, was honored as a founding PCI Fellow in 1994 and as a Titan of the Industry in 2004, and in 2007 won the Robert J. Lyman Award, recognizing the PCI Journal paper that offers the greatest contribution in the area of plant production, site erection, or general construction using precast and prestressed concrete.
He has served several terms on PCI’s Board of Directors and has participated in an array of committees and councils covering nearly every facet of PCI.
Wilden is a current member of the Continuing Education, Industry Handbook, Membership, Professional Member, Student Education, and Tolerances committees. He is past chair of the Continuing Education, Industry Handbook, TMRD Executive, and Tolerances committees and the Educational Activities, Research & Development, and Technical Activities councils, and past co-chair of the Ad Hoc Committee on Responsibility.
Wilden is also a past member of more than a dozen other committees, as well as the task group that established the PCI Fellow Program and several ad hoc committees.
The Medal of Honor, PCI’s highest award, recognizes a member’s outstanding service to the institute or contributions to the industry throughout a long period of time.
