Welcome

The virtual event for Civil and Structural Engineers who want to deliver better government infrastructure designs

How can engineers deliver better water, transportation, and building infrastructure projects? One tactic is by improving the early phase of project management and conceptual design when design options are evaluated, cost estimates and budgets are developed, project delivery methods are chosen, and the stage is set for how the team will collaborate and meet project goals.

Join us for the Government Infrastructure eConference: Engineers Planning for Better Water, Transportation, and Building Projects and learn from your peers about how to conduct efficient and collaborative early-phase engineering planning, evaluate options to satisfy project demands, and develop winning solutions that will last for the entire project lifecycle.

Within this framework, experts will review current trends in the public market related to sustainable design; specified products and materials; system design; construction techniques; model-based design, visualization, and simulation; BIM; project delivery; geospatial technologies; and other progressive topics. Speakers from both the private and public sector will discuss trends, explore project examples, and provide tips for tactical improvements to meet current demands faced by water system, transportation infrastructure, and building owners.

Uniquely, speakers presenting case studies will review the design options considered, including major material, system, or product selection; explain why the winning solution was chosen; and discuss the technologies used to make the conceptual or schematic design phase efficient, collaborative, and powerful.

Government infrastructure projects offer unique challenges. Join us to explore unique solutions for getting the job done better
