There are ways to design and construct infrastructure to mitigate environmental damage and still be within a reasonable budget. We as engineers all exercise care in our designs and take into account the impacts of local conditions on our infrastructure. ASCE is leading an effort to encourage the use of life cycle cost analysis to look at total costs of infrastructure. This includes sustainability, resilience, environmental, and other costs associated with the project. T&DI supports and encourages all our members to learn methods of life cycle cost analysis and provide the best long-term value for your clients, public or private.
Transportation & Development Institute (T&DI) is the global leader for integrated transportation and development that is safe, secure and sustainable.
