The American Concrete Pavement Association has appointed Eric Ferrebee, E.I.T., as its new Technical Services Engineer.
Ferrebee holds both Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where his areas of emphasis were transportation, materials, and construction management.
In his role with ACPA, Ferrebee will manage the Association’s clearinghouse of technical and promotional resources; provide technical resources and consulting services to members and affiliated Chapter/State paving associations; develop technical information; and deliver presentations on paving technology and related information.
He also will serve as a technical contact on roller-compacted concrete technology and pavements for streets/roads, complementing the association’s engineering team that covers pavements for highways, airports, and industrial and special pavement applications.
Ferrebee’s recent experience includes work on two timely topics: Life-cycle assessment (LCA) for sustainability and RCC materials. Prior to joining ACPA, Ferrebee served as a Graduate Research Assistant at the University of Illinois, where he assisted in research on mechanical and fracture properties of roller-compacted concrete (RCC). Previously, he served as a Teaching Assistant for the Geometric Design of Roads course, also at the University of Illinois. He also worked as a Technical Intern at Sage Environmental Consulting, an environmental sciences consulting practice in their Champaign, Illinois office.
“We are happy to welcome Eric Ferrebee to the association, where he will provide a wide range of services to association members, affiliates, and others in the concrete pavement industry,” said ACPA President & CEO Gerald F. Voigt, P.E. “His experience with concrete materials, design, and construction, as well as his perspectives on sustainability and emerging technologies such as RCC make him a tremendous asset to the association and our members.”
Ferrebee and his wife Rebecca live in suburban Chicago. Outside of work, Ferrebee is an avid fan of movies and baseball, favoring both the Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox.
