Olejniczak Recognized for Engineering Excellence

Consulting-Specifying Engineer (CSE) announces the 2023 class of its 40 Under 40 winners, including ESD Senior Project Engineer Ben Olejniczak.

In making the announcement, CSE explained the annual award is given to 40 nonresidential building industry professionals ages 40 and younger “who stand out in a mixture of personal and professional aspects of their lives.” Determination, ambition, and creativity describe this year’s group of expert engineers, complex systems designers, industry leaders, and community supporters.

Olejniczak’s profile is published alongside other recipients and maps his journey from company intern to ESD’s de facto lead as mechanical engineer for the firm’s largest client. Olejniczak is cited for his design creativity, work ethic, and credibility with clients as key factors in his rise as a leader in ESD’s hyperscale data center business.

Candidates were judged by industry experts based on nine areas, including their commitment to academics, professional growth, personal lives, and service in their community. Winners will be presented with their awards at a ceremony in Chicago in October.

As evident in his nomination and win as a CSE 40 Under 40 engineer, Ben Olejniczak is committed to advancing ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
