Lt. Craig Mauss was selected as Military Engineer of the Year, and Trevor Lunceford was selected as Civilian Engineer of the Year.

Mauss managed six complex and diverse construction projects valued at more than $50 million. His efforts enhanced the Navy’s warfare research capability through the construction of a multi-million dollar addition to a Research Development Testing and Evaluation facility. He upgraded a decades-old utilities system through the establishment of a new connection to the municipal water source and replacement of antiquated water distribution lines onboard Naval Base Kitsap-Keyport. Additionally, his managerial and engineering skills were on full display when he oversaw the salvage, repair, and re-installation of a critical ballistic missile submarine mooring camel, in a condensed repair window, to support strategic deterrence patrols. However, most noteworthy of all, from October 2020 to May 2021, he filled a key vacancy as a Supervisory General Engineer for Construction at FEAD Bangor. In this critical engineering and supervisory role, he led a multi-discipline team of Engineering Technicians and Construction Managers responsible in the management of $234 million in construction projects, spanning three geographically dispersed locations.

Lunceford provided exceptional engineering support, team leadership, and programmatic oversight for utility programs at five geographically dispersed locations. He masterfully planned, budgeted, and managed more than $100 million in improvements to potable water systems, antiquated sewer infrastructure, and critical electrical distribution systems. Through innovative design solutions, he and his team maximized available funding and drove system flexibility and dependability up 25%. Most notably, he coordinated efforts to define requirements for all utility-related upgrades to two mission critical Navy programs. First, at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, he developed a utility upgrade plan for the Navy’s Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program (SIOP), whose multi-billion dollar program will increase the efficiency of the Pacific Fleet’s largest shipyard and position the shipyard to support the fleet for decades to come. Second, he planned and programmed utility system requirements to support the Chief of Naval Operation’s top priority to deliver the COLUMBIA class nuclear ballistic submarine to Naval Base Kitsap.
