WJE's Edis Oliver Wins Honor for Roofing Expertise

October 15, 2012
Edis Oliver, Principal, in Austin, Texas, was recently presented the Curtis Blackwell Memorial Award at The Roofing Contractors Association of Texas Annual Conference.

The Blackwell Award is an annual award presented to the person who has made the greatest contribution to the roofing industry in Texas. Since the Roofing Contractors Association of Texas is a contractor organization, the award is traditionally reserved for contractors. This is the first time in its thirty-eight-year history the award has been presented to a consultant.

Mr. Oliver has over forty years of experience in the construction and engineering field. Prior to joining WJE in 2006, he was an engineer with Otis Elevator Company and Honeywell, Inc. He founded Oliver Roofing Systems, Inc., in 1973. Oliver also started Edis Oliver & Associates, which developed into a premier roof consulting firm in Texas with key accounts at universities, school districts, and governmental agencies. Mr. Oliver was selected by the Roofing Contractors Association of Texas to write the roofing contractor certification manual in 1991 entitled Managing a Roofing Company in Texas.
