Recently the Ontario Provincial Government announced they are making cuts to the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario’s office and has come out with a less than enthusiastic environmental policy. Silencing the environmental critic isn’t going to change the fact that we have to do something about Climate Change. Since the Ontario government isn’t going to take responsibility for our environment it falls on our businesses to take up the challenge. That got us thinking, what can engineers do to reduce green house gases, especially in the construction industry? We designed a small concrete, steel and wood beam. We then calculated the CO2 emissions of each beam – the results may not be surprising but it does demonstrate the impact engineers can have on green house gases.
Retaining walls over 1 meter or 3 feet are considered designated structures in the Ontario Building Code. This means they require a structural engineer to design it as well as a subsurface soil investigation by a geotechnical engineer. Having these structures properly designed ensures safety for the owner and public.
