Choosing a "Green" Builder For Your Eco-Friendly Project

Creating a Green (eco-friendly) building makes sense. And if your project attains the prestigious LEED™(for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), it will be ranked among America's environmentally friendly buildings. The points-based LEED rating systems encompasses commercial buildings, schools, retail space, healthcare facilities and are awarded on four levels: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

8 Famous Landmarks in Geotechnical Engineering

Although most people think of the science of geotechnical engineering to be a recent discipline, achievements by geotechnical engineers have enriched the history of humankind for thousands of years, dating at least as far back as the Egyptian pyramids.

The Importance of High Quality Earth Dam Design

Earth dams, in existence for more than two thousand years, are probably the oldest type of dam. Constructed out of layers of tightly compacted earth, rock and sometimes clay, earth dams can be quite economical to create. Because they are made from materials found in the proximity of the project site, transportation costs are drastically reduced.

Geotechnical Engineering's Devices and Machinery

When a commercial or public construction project requires significant work that involves the Earth's materials (soil, water, rocks and other geological matter, etc.), geotechnical engineers and other scientists work on the planning, design and creation of the structure. Unfortunately, poor planning, shoddy construction and illicit practices can have catastrophic environmental consequences.

Major Environmental Engineering Challenges of the 21st Century

In 2008 an elite panel consisting of futurists, engineers and technologists (specialists who are able to apply existing technology within a field of engineering) convened with marching orders to identify what they observed to be the most important environmental engineering challenges of the 21 st Century.

How important is Award Recognition and Professional Membership?

The engineering firm you're about to do business with proudly displays on its website many icons representing award recognition and memberships in professional associations. Perhaps you glossed over these icons without considering how important they are. Take, for instance, Universal Scientific Engineering (Universal) a Florida-based firm with a significant presence in the Southeast, Midwest and California.

What Challenges Does it Hold for Geotechnical Engineers

A report released in March, 2013 based on reviews by 13 governmental agencies, puts a dire spin on the possible impact of climate change on America's infrastructure. The report, which was generated in support of the National Climate Assessment that is due to be formally released by the U.S.
