Producing high-quality, valuable research is the hallmark of the Foundation. In 2013 and 2014,
ELECTRI has released nine new studies that address the business needs of contractors. Each report
is available free of charge for NECA members and at a nominal cost for non-members. A synopsis of
each report and ordering details can be found at www.electri.org/research-project-archives.
ELECTRI International is the Foundation for the Electrical Construction Industry. With resources
contributed from generous contractors, NECA Chapters, and industry allies, ELECTRI provides
research, education, and technology solutions that advance the growth and prosperity of the
electrical construction industry.
ELECTRI International Research
In Memory of
Thomas E. Glavinich
Thomas E. Glavinich, D.E., P.E., a faculty member in
the Department of Architectural Engineering at the
University of Kansas, died in April 2014 after a lengthy
battle with cancer.
Well-known to the ELEC TRI International community, Tom was
among the first academic researchers to receive an ELECTRI grant
in the early 1990s and his investigative studies continued to be
among the most outstanding projects accepted for ELECTRI
research over the next 20 years.
Tom was especially enthusiastic about the opportunities ELEC TRI
offers for young faculty members and outstanding students
to engage with the Foundation. He was a strong supporter of
ELEC TRI’s Early Career Awards and encouraged faculty from
universities across the country to bring their most creative ideas to
the table for this annual competition.
To honor Tom’s memory, ELEC TRI International has established
a fund through which friends and colleagues may contribute
to support a named Early Career Award. The first contribution
received for this initiative has come from the Canadian Electrical
Contractors Association. ELECTRI extends its thanks to the
members of the CECA Board for their generosity.
Each year, the recipient selected by the ELECTRI Council will be
designated as the Thomas Glavinich Fellow.
