As we begin to transition back into our physical offices in various capacities, we want to thank our colleagues and coworkers for their outstanding flexibility and dedication.

We're calling today Future Friday, and as National Public Works Week comes to a close, we have our eyes set on what the future of engineering and public works looks like. A big part of that is planning for the potential for earthquakes, storms, and other unexpected events. From inspecting critical water towers in Vancouver, WA, to providing a full inventory and seismic resiliency rating of every bridge in Eugene, OR, our team is dedicated to making sure our public works are ready for the future, no matter what comes our way.
As National Public Works Week continues, we're thrilled to celebrate the public works projects that manage and protect our planet's most plentiful resource: Water. Stormwater, wastewater, drinking water... All of it is essential and worth protecting. So grab a glass and join us in celebrating Water Wednesday! 💧
National Public Works Week continues, and today we're celebrating Transportation Tuesday with a look at the various ways our public works keep people moving.

It's an honor to keep people connected and moving, no matter their mode of transportation.
It's National Public Works Week! We're kicking things off with Marine Monday, celebrating all the docks, wharves, and other port facilities that keep our maritime industries flowing smoothly!
