Trevor Hollins

Trevor Hollins, P.E., LEED AP, lighting design studio lead in HDR’s Omaha, Nebraska architecture studio, has been selected for two 2018 Lighting magazine’s Lighting Design Awards.

Hollins received the 40under40 North America Award in March in New York. He will be honored with the second award — the 40under40 International Award — on May 3 at the London Hilton Park Lane in London.

The 40under40 — in association with the global lighting brand Osram — was founded in 2016 to celebrate 40 years of the Lighting Design Awards, and to create a mechanism for the lighting industry to recognize and celebrate its emerging talent.

Twenty-two men and 18 women from 12 countries were chosen among 350 applications for the international award. Winners of the North American award were chosen from 120 applications.

“The achievements of these outstanding young people — be they creative, academic or philanthropic — are phenomenal, and the selection panel was incredibly impressed,” said Ray Molony, chairman of the 40under40 international selection panel. “This year’s cohort is truly outstanding, and it is set to make a huge contribution. This industry is in safe hands for the future.”

“Trevor’s desire for design excellence on every project is apparent in his disciplined attention to detail and deep technical expertise,” said Andy Yosten, P.E., LEED AP, vice president, director of mechanical engineering at HDR. “He has made a tremendous impact with an extraordinary influence on elevating design across all disciplines.”
