Mobile, Ala. – April 30, 2018 – The Mobile Area Council of Engineers (MACE) presented three Hargrove Engineers + Constructors Teammates with awards as part of their annual recognition program on February 7th, 2019. Stuart Tyler, PE, was awarded Engineering Manager of the Year, Robert Cox, PE was awarded Chemical Engineer of the Year, and Brad Felkner, PE, received the honor of being named Electrical Engineer of the Year. These awards recognize those who have contributed significantly to the engineering profession and to the technological and economic development in the Mobile area, the region, the nation, and the world throughout their engineering career.

Stuart Tyler, PE is a Senior Project Manager and serves as the Mobile Refining Unit Lead for Hargrove Engineers + Constructors. He is responsible for overall refining project execution and leads a team of 12 project managers running a portfolio of as many as 25 refining projects at a time. With 12 years of experience in the gas, chemical, power, and refining industries, Stuart’s expertise and knowledge includes piping/equipment design and project engineering/management from front end planning thru construction. Stuart became an associate (owner, or principal) with Hargrove in 2014, and has also mentored young teammates through Hargrove’s PURVIEW Program for rising leadership. While not at work, Stuart is also busy at home where he is a devout husband to his wife Abigail and father of six children!

Robert Cox, PE is a Chemical Engineer with over 11 years of experience in process modeling and analysis, relief systems and steam boilers for industries including chemicals, oil refining, and pulp and paper. Robert received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from The University of South Alabama, and now serves as a Process Engineer IV at Hargrove Engineers + Constructors, where he is responsible for hydraulic analysis and modeling, process equipment analysis and simulations, pressure relief device analysis, technical equipment specifications, project lists, P&ID development, engineering report development, engineering calculations, and field surveys and support. He is a member of the AIChE Engineering Society and is a registered professional engineer in the state of Alabama and he is quickly becoming one of Hargrove’s key subject matter experts in refining.

Brad Felkner, PE has over 10 years of experience in electrical engineering and instrumentation for industrial, marine, chemical and refining industries. As the Refining Electrical & Instrumentation Engineering Coordinator at Hargrove Engineers + Constructors, Brad is responsible for leading the engineering team that supports Refining Projects – 12 E&I engineers who are his direct reports. Brad works closely with Hargrove’s clients to assure project objectives are achieved on refining projects. He also has extensive experience with design engineering, specifying electrical equipment and instrumentation, design of detailed electrical systems, and Safety Instrumented Systems. Brad has been a member of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), participated in the ASNE (American Society of Naval Engineers) Electric Ship Design Symposium, and volunteers every year for Hargrove at the Jackson County (MS) Industrial Tradeshow. He is passionate about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education and has assisted with several STEM related programs at Hargrove.

Congratulations to this year’s MACE award recipients!
