Rethinking communities to make them more liveable

When engineers rethink communities, they’re making them more liveable for Canadians. 

By rethinking communities, engineers are making them more liveable for Canadians. By employing innovative building approaches, such as modular construction, they’re easing the construction process to help build more homes, faster. By incorporating sustainable design practices like the use of solar panel roofs, engineers are helping people save on energy costs while offering environmental solutions. And by collaborating with urban planners and policymakers, engineers are leading the way in developing inclusive zoning regulations and infrastructure improvement that enhance mobility and affordability within communities. These are just a few of the ways engineers are making a difference in our communities to help make them more liveable.
