On Nov. 5, 1852, a dozen eminent civil engineers gathered at the Croton Aqueduct in New York City, in the office of Chief Engineer Alfred W. Craven, to establish the American Society of Civil Engineers and Architects. In 1868, a few years after architects had formed a professional society of their own, ASCE adopted its current name. For the first 144 years of its existence, ASCE maintained its headquarters in New York City, relocating six times to progressively larger facilities. In 1996, ASCE moved its global headquarters to Reston, Virginia, just outside Washington, D.C.
Establishment of Nigeria International Section
Located in one of the most populous countries in West Africa, the ASCE Nigeria International Section has more than 600 members, who meet at least 3 times a year. The Nigeria Section was established in 2010. In 2017, the Nigeria Section established the Abuja Branch and in 2020, the Kaduna Branch.
