Live, Work & Play
The lines between work, family and our social lives are becoming more and more entangled. Developers must continue to be agile and offer greater flexibility when it comes to living space and efficient solutions around energy consumption, while meeting the needs of their prospective tenants. Keeping ourselves and our clients informed of the latest trends and requirements with residential buildings, in addition to understanding the growing and diverse demands of various stakeholders, remains crucial to our team’s ability to deliver quality engineering solutions that enable the success of our clients and their respective projects as well as the communities in which they are located.

Climate change has an undeniable effect on Saskatchewan and water management is essential to adapting to warmer temperatures across the globe, according to civil engineer Wayne Clifton.
Clifton said the frequency of rain and water runoff is also much more variable and requires human intervention. He added that 95 per cent of the water flowing through Saskatchewan is not benefiting the province.
Now that marijuana is legal in Canada for recreational purposes, one question hanging in the air is whether more Canadians will smoke weed on their way to work, or step out to purchase it during their coffee break.
If they do, how will this impact workplace productivity, and health and safety? This question is especially pertinent in occupations involving driving or operating heavy machinery, and those involving law enforcement and the provision of medical care to the public.
Collision numbers are down in Edmonton since Vision Zero was created in 2015.
Traffic safety experts and industry leaders recentyl gathered at the Edmonton Expo Centre to discuss how to make city roads safer — especially after cannabis legalization.
The world’s first bio-brick made from human urine has been unveiled by the University of Cape Town's (UCT) master’s students in civil engineering.
According to UCT’s website, the bio-brick is created through a process called microbial carbonate precipitation, which is similar to how seashells are formed.
Canadian Occupational Safety
Nearly one in five managers (19 per cent) are at least somewhat likely to consume cannabis for recreational purposes before going to work, while 14 per cent said it’s somewhat likely they will consume cannabis during work hours.
As for workers, seven per cent said they are likely to use cannabis before work, while four per cent will consume it during work hours, found a recent survey of 1,000 people, 500 of whom are managers, by Ipsos, commissioned by ADP Canada.
