Jason Krohn, P.E., SECB, CAE, BSCP, F.SEI, F.ASCE, who has spent more than 20 years in the design and construction of precast, prestressed concrete structures, has been named a Fellow by the ASCE Board of Direction.
Krohn is the managing director of technical activities for the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI). After working briefly for the Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of the Army, he began his career at a precast concrete manufacturer working as a design engineer responsible for complex precast concrete structures such as parking structures, sports arenas, and food processing plants, as well as religious, educational, and correctional facilities.
He now represents PCI and the precast concrete industry in the development and modification of various structural design codes and standards by serving on such committees as ASCE 7 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures and a subcommittee to ACI 318–Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete. He is also an active member of many other technical committees within the American Concrete Institute, PCI, ASCE and the Structural Engineering Institute, and the International Federation of Structural Concrete, as well as serving as past president of the Alliance for Concrete Codes and Standards.
Krohn has been involved with the Illinois Chapter of SEI by serving as its training coordinator, and as a member of the SEI-IL Biennial Lecture Series Committee. He also helped with the development of several committee documents, including the last two editions of the PCI Design Handbook.
He earned his B.S. and M.S. in civil engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
