Every year Engineering News-Record (ENR) honors up-and-coming individuals who have shown extraordinary leadership, career progress, and community involvement across the architecture, construction, and engineering industries. Among those individuals are three of Arup’s talented young professionals who have been profiled in ENR’s New York, California, and Northwest regional publications. 

John Barrot: ENR New York’s Top Young Professionals

John is an associate principal in Arup’s New York office, a member of the consulting practice leadership team, and a thought leader in fire/life safety. Well-practiced in combining fire-engineered solutions and computational analysis with an understanding of the regulatory environment, he continues to drive research and solve real-world problems for his clients. He is equally passionate about encouraging his team to continually improve their potential — unlocking innovation and positive industry impact.

John is a leader in digital transformation for Arup’s international fire practice, working to continually innovate the way we deliver projects and provide value for our clients. He is active in code development working with New York City, the International Code Council, and the Canadian Standards Association to help their regulations keep pace with the challenges of our time. A champion of lifelong learning, John attributes much of his progress to several of his own mentors and peers.


Ingrid Chaires: ENR California’s Top Young Professionals

Ingrid is a senior building physics engineer and a leader for digital implementation in Arup’s San Francisco office. She is highly experienced in thermal comfort analysis, with a focus on incorporating sustainable design and climate mitigation. As a member of our advanced technology and research team, she has worked on a number of large-scale projects including building energy modeling, microclimate analysis, thermal and wind comfort assessments, and passive and zero-net-energy design measures. 

Ingrid’s knowledge of computer programming has allowed her to develop and improve upon project-specific tools and provide digitalized solutions to projects and workflows throughout the Americas region. She and her team most recently completed a thermal comfort calculation web application, available to all in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry, to raise the bar on how practitioners think about thermal comfort through multi-nodal modeling. 


Elizabeth Joyce: ENR Northwest’s Top Young Professionals

Elizabeth is a senior mechanical engineer in Arup’s Seattle office, where she uses her expertise to create a more equitable, climate-adapted, and low-energy future for the built environment and its inhabitants. Elizabeth is committed to using an array of services and tools to move industries and organizations toward climate change mitigation and adaptation – expanding beyond the design of individual projects, to programs and policies that move entire markets.

Previously, Elizabeth worked for Engineers Without Borders-USA, where she led their portfolio of clean energy projects with humanitarian clients, primarily in refugee/humanitarian settings in East Africa, conducting all aspects of project management, engineering design, training, and construction.
