Premier geotechnical firm CTL|Thompson announced today that its senior principal engineer and the longtime head of its Southern Colorado practice, Bill Hoffmann, P.E., was named to the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) College of Fellows. Among the highest achievements in the engineering community, College of Fellows engineers represent a distinguished class of engineers who have been selected by their peers as deserving recognition for exemplary contributions to the profession.

Hoffmann was nominated by the ACEC past presidents, who recognized his lifetime of leadership and industry advocacy and his continuing commitment to the organization. Hoffmann has served as a National Director of ACEC and was president of ACEC’s Colorado member organization.

Hoffmann has spent his entire engineering career with CTL|Thompson, serving on its corporate leadership team, as senior principal engineer, and managing the Colorado Springs and Pueblo divisions. He is the principal reviewer of all nonresidential projects in southern Colorado and has served as project engineer on such facilities as the Pueblo Levee reconstruction, Pikes Peak Summit House Complex, University of Colorado-Colorado Springs expansion, Olympic Training Center, Broadmoor Hotel and World Arena.

“Bill Hoffmann was the 10th employee at CTL, joining our founder Bob Thompson on a journey that would ultimately change the way land was developed in Colorado,” says CTL CEO Stuart Thompson. “Bill’s contributions to the field of geotechnical engineering have led to more thoughtful and sound engineering practices throughout Southern Colorado and have been felt throughout the industry.”

Committed to the highest standards of engineering in the region, Hoffmann was the primary author of the pavement design criteria manual for the City of Colorado Springs and helped establish and update the city’s Geologic Hazards Ordinance. He is past president and founder of the Southern Colorado section of the Colorado Association of Geotechnical Engineers and an active member of the HBA of Southern Colorado and the Association of General Contractors of Southern Colorado (AGC-SOCO).
