March 4th, 2023 is UNESCO’s #WorldEngineeringDay for Sustainable Development. It was created to raise awareness of architectural engineering in all aspects of life. Additionally, to mitigate the impact of climate change and advance sustainable development. UNESCO is passionate and dedicated about promoting engineering as a career. Moreover, demonstrating the importance of youth studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Our engineers have built a solid reputation in providing clients with innovative solutions. Most importantly, efficient options that take into account project needs, budget and impact on the environment. Our structural, mechanical, and engineering specialists are driven to create a successful project all while benefitting the planet. Today, the amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere is staggering. Since the the building and construction sector contributes 11% of the entire CO2 emissions worldwide, it is our responsibility to provide sustainable solutions. In fact, there are several options we can start applying today. This includes:
– reusing building stocks instead of constructing new ones
– limit the use of carbon-intensive materials
– use high-recycled content materials
The theme for this year’s #WorldEngineeringDay is ‘Innovation for a More Resilient World.’ We asked our architectural engineering team for their insights, and how climate change impacts the way we future-proof buildings. You might be surprised by what they had to say.
