David Engineers Ltd., Tel Aviv

Israel David, General Manager, CEO and Owner of David Engineers, Ltd., is the recipient of the 2019 CTBUH Fazlur I. Khan Lifetime Achievement Award. Since 1990, David has built up his engineering firm to become the largest in Israel, with more than 120 engineers and work in 25 countries. From a very early stage in his academic career, David chose to focus on the difficulties of high-rise and seismic engineering, allowing him to become a foremost authority in the field, with several appointments to government commissions and standards-setting bodies. A fellow of the CTBUH since 2016, David has also been the CTBUH Israel Country Representative since 2009. Despite the nation’s small size, it has repeatedly sent some of the largest delegations to CTBUH conferences, thanks in large part to David’s efforts. David earned a bachelor’s and a master’s of degree in civil engineering from the Israel Institute of Technology (The Technion) in 1981 and 1988, respectively.
