Learn how to “future proof” the infrastructure in your community by investing dollars wisely. Strategies include the incorporation of American Society of Civil Engineers(ASCE) 7, a series of design standards that reflect the latest data on the wind, ice, and tsunami, and flood impacts and how our infrastructure should be built to withstand and protect against these big events. Meanwhile, ASCE’s new Sustainability Standard informs planners about social, economic, and environmental guidelines, and the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure’s Envision rating system gauges a project’s achievement in meeting long-term sustainability goals.
