    Climate Action for Engineers Series: Categories of Action - What to do?

    Oct 23, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM (ET)

    Number of PDHS: 1.5

    Lots of different actions can be taken. We’ll clarify mitigation vs. adaptation and resilience, as well as the various categories of mitigation - personal, professional, and political action, the effectiveness of different types of action, the economics of carbon reduction, as well as activities that have an immediate short-term benefits versus long-term effects. We’ll review the concept of geo-engineering pros and cons. We’ll also consider the role of the engineering community in the development and implementation of solutions, and what steps have already been taken by some engineering organizations.

    Climate Action for Engineers Series: Structural and Infrastructure Mitigation

    Oct 30, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM (ET)

    Number of PDHS: 1.5

    Every area of engineering has a different set of opportunities for the mitigation of climate change. In this session we’ll drill down into some ideas for building and infrastructure construction. We’ll review the carbon footprint of concrete, steel, masonry and wood based on current, third-party verified Environmental Product Declarations. Then we’ll consider different types of modifications to standard construction, ranging from incremental to radical. Taking these into account we’ll do a carbon tally of a typical building project. Finally, we’ll introduce some possibilities that might, with research, be truly transformative.

    Clients are from Venus, Consultants from Mars: A Guide to Effective Management of Consultants

    Nov 6, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (ET)

    Clients are from Venus, Consultants from Mars: A Guide to Effective Management of Consultants

    Speaker: Michael Ellegood, P.E.

    In today’s public works environment, the use of consultants to provide engineering services is endemic. Despite the interdependency of public client and consultant, their worlds, business models, accounting systems, and legal environments are all very different. Even the fundamental aspects of how public agencies and consultants are motivated and how they interact with other agencies and competitors differ.

    This webinar showcases these differences so that client and consultant can better understand each other’s operating environment. This improved understanding will result in better communication and mutual expectations.

    Topics to be covered include:

    • The respective business models of public client and consultant
    • The real financial world of the consultant
    • How clients perceive consultants, the hierarchy of consultants.
    • Tips on consultant selection
    • What clients expect of consultants
    • How to deal with an underperforming consultant

    Michael Ellegood is a practicing Civil Engineer and has managed major projects. He was Public Works Director, County Engineer and Transportation Director for Maricopa County, Arizona, as well as Chief Engineer and General Manager of the Flood Control District of Maricopa County. He has been a consulting engineer and a senior manager in the Parsons Corporation, Tudor Engineering Company, and T.Y. Lin International.  Mr. Ellegood has also been active in the Arizona Society of Professional Engineers and served as ASPE’s president. Mr. Ellegood is a retired Army combat veteran and served in Vietnam.
