ASTM International Honors Daniel Lemieux with Top Annual Award

ASTM International presented its top annual award – the 2024 Award of Merit – to Daniel J. (Dan) Lemieux for his contributions to ASTM’s performance of buildings committee (E06).  

The prestigious award, which includes the accompanying title of fellow, is ASTM’s highest recognition for distinguished service and outstanding participation in ASTM International committee activities. Lemieux was recognized for his support of construction industry education, development of ASTM’s membership, and dedication to getting standards into practice.

An ASTM International member since 1995, Lemieux had been previously honored by the committee with the Robert J. Painter Memorial Award (2012) for his leadership in the development of the ASTM building enclosure commissioning standards.

Lemieux serves as director and principal at Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc., a global consulting firm of engineers, architects, and materials scientists founded in 1956. For over 30 years, his career focus has been building enclosure consulting, and he has contributed to hundreds of projects involving failure investigation, repair design, and architectural rehabilitation.

In addition to ASTM, Lemieux was elevated to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects (FAIA) in part for his efforts to strengthen building science education for architects through his work with ASTM International and the National Institute of Building Sciences. He earned a bachelor’s degree in architecture from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1988 and is currently leading a course in failures and forensics in our built environment at Georgia Tech.
