I have been involved in many road design projects and from an engineering standpoint, road reconstruction offers a number of interesting challenges. For a new road design or a total rebuild, the designer is mainly dealing with new alignments which are influenced to a lesser degree by the prevailing conditions and features. Conversely, for a road reconstruction design, the designer is confronted with the need to integrate and match existing and new features. A clear understanding of what sections of road needs to be demolished or remain intact is critical. As such, the designer will need to derive from the... Continue reading

In today’s design environment designing off-street parking to meet local design standards, client expectations, and sustainability initiatives can be a balancing act. In many cases the feasibility and preliminary design stages are performed as non-billable time in a competitive bid process where there is no guarantee that your design/organization will win the contract to recoup the engineering expenses to put the proposal together. From discussions with engineers and land planners, it's estimated that a typical proposal may include anywhere from 1 to 6 alternate layouts for the client to review in order to make the decision to award the contract....

A recent conversation with my consulting industry peers attending a local professional event left us questioning whether or not we are diligently transferring our skills and knowledge to the less experienced Engineers. The majority within the group felt that experienced professionals are either too busy or simply not available to provide mentorship. One view (or a mere scapegoat) was that typical projects have very tight deadlines eliminating the chance to adequately transfer knowledge. Additionally, many projects have no extra budget and certainly no room for experiments. However, we know that engineering judgment is developed and perfected over time through hands-on...

The debate on the latest leaks known as the Panama Papers will make news headlines for many weeks to come. The investigations, and more importantly, how these leaks will affect the current mode operand as it relates to tax matters, will be years in the making. Everyone is aware that tax evasion is illegal. However tax avoidance maybe a highly debatable topic because its a constant cat and mouse game between the tax authority and the tax payers (read tax consultants) finding legal means to reduce and/or avoid taxes by seeking tax loopholes. Tax matter can be very complex matters... Continue reading
