Weekly links from Portland’s AEC industry.
With development projects jumping up daily and a steady stream of new residents, the Portland metro area is always an interesting place in the AEC industry. The following links highlight civil engineering and regional news over the past week.
- Here at Civil PDX, I explored the differences between passive and proactive design approaches and how a designer’s approach can affect the long term benefits and implications of a project.
- BikePortland.org is wrapping up a week long series about the BTA’s five new advocacy campaigns, which include driving big functional changes on the Broadway commercial corridor and defining the future of the Safe Routes to Schools program.
- Brian Libby of Portland Architecture wrote a great article about the past, present and future of Tilikum Crossing, Portland’s newest bridge, which is scheduled to open in September 2015.
That’s all for this week. Have a great Labor Day weekend!
