Description
Engineers build things that last. Wilson Dam was built in 1924; it provides flood control and cheap, renewable electricity today. Unfortunately, much of what has been built in the last 50 years was constructed on the “low-bid” concept—just build it cheap, and let someone else worry about operating costs. We need to reconsider this business model and look to the costs future generations will have to pay. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE), and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) all have codes of ethics that more or less address the issue of sustainability—the burden we leave for future generations. By carefully considering sustainability, we can design projects that are safe, useful, and easy for future engineers to operate. Consider the triple bottom line, balancing economy, sustainability, and people.
 
Attendees will learn to design works that, by carefully considering sustainability, we can design projects that are safe, useful, and easy for future engineers to operate. Consider the triple bottom line, balancing economy, sustainability, and people.
