Larry Madrid of Bartow, Fla., a civil engineer and a fellow of ASCE, has been "a leader locally in green innovations," said Mikhal Moberg, a water resource engineer and former president of Polk County's ASCE group. Madrid has a company that focuses on energy-efficient construction and retrofitting. "People like to think we see things confined to a box, and see only one solution to any problem," but "[t]hat's just not the way I think," Madrid said.
