Daniel S. Zechmeister, executive director of the Masonry Institute of Michigan, Southfield, Mich., has received the ASTM International Award of Merit from Committee C15 on Manufactured Masonry Units. The Award of Merit and its accompanying title of fellow is ASTM's highest organizational recognition for individual contributions to standards activities.

A member of ASTM International since 1987, Committee C15 honored Zechmeister for his contributions to standards for manufactured masonry units of fired clay and shale, concrete and sand-lime units. He has served terms as recording secretary and membership secretary on the main C15 committee and works on several subcommittees. He was recognized with a C15 Award of Appreciation in 2005 for his term as awards chairman. Zechmeister is also a member of Committee C12 on Mortars and Grouts for Unit Masonry.

A registered professional engineer in the state of Michigan, Zechmeister joined the Masonry Institute of Michigan, a non-profit institute dedicated to the promotion and advancement of the masonry industry, in 1986 and assumed his current role in 1990. Prior to that, he was an associate civil engineer for the City Engineering Department Inspection Bureau in Detroit, Mich., and a structural engineer at Albert Kahn Associates and Campbell Associates, both in Detroit. He holds a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Wayne State University.

Outside ASTM International, Zechmeister is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Masonry Society and its Masonry Standards and Joint Committee, the Building Enclosure Council of Greater Detroit and the Structural Engineers Association of Michigan. He was named an honorary affiliate member of the American Institute of Architects Detroit in 2008.
