Future-ready infrastructure involves nature-based design and technological advancements in materials, energy use, and system-to-system communication and adaptive planning and management capabilities that respond to the risks from increasingly interconnected infrastructure. Understanding and adapting to risks such as changes in the earth’s temperature, increasing frequency of natural hazards, and the impact of sea level rise drive the need for civil engineers to design and build equitable, smart, hazard-resilient, people-centric engineering projects.
As the United Nations and governments across the globe are implementing requirements and regulations for public and private entities to disclose carbon impacts, civil engineers will be ready to respond, helping to mitigate carbon emissions, and respond to the demand for resilient infrastructure and community designs.

For more than 75 years, our experts have designed and delivered the global infrastructure that connects and protects communities around the world. Where New York needed a crossing, we delivered the new Goethals Bridge, designed with a 100-year life span in mind. When the Southern Nevada Water Authority needed to sustainably safeguard water access, we provided the program and construction management to make it happen.
