A key focus for the construction industry is not only designing a building that is aesthetic and functional but one that will consume the lowest amount of energy and have a minimal impact on the environment. Engineers play a pivotal role in driving sustainability and being involved throughout each stage of the construction process is a critical part of the job. Engineers influence the shape and orientation of a building to make the best use of local conditions and maximize renewable technologies.

Engineers are involved in the design and installation of all the elements of a building which bring it to life. From lighting and acoustics to escalators and security systems to HVAC systems — they are in control. They work collaboratively with architects and other construction professionals to construct a variety of buildings ranging from small schools to the largest commercial projects.

The Building, Design & Construction Community is designed to keep students informed about relevant industry news and connect them with related opportunities.
