“On a basic level, engineers and planners are charged with designing the physical environment that humans interact with. That’s quite a responsibility when you consider it. What’s very satisfying to me is creating designs that positively transform our communities for future and present generations. When undertaking an assignment, our first question should be, ‘How can our solutions assist in improving the lives of all parties affected?’”
