Implications for Planners, Architects and Engineers
  • Consider poor and failing infrastructure systems as you plan, design and engineer your projects
  • Examples:
    • Power grid
    • Drinking water
    • Roads, bridges and tunnels
security incomplete grade
Security: “Incomplete” Grade
  • Lack of data
  • Implications:
    • Points to a much bigger problem
      • Technical Tour participants experienced it yesterday
      • “Any security system that is based on secrecy is no security system.”
    • Other examples
      • Professional workshop and web seminar cancellations due to gag orders by clients and government agencies
      • Non-participation in collaborative activities due to prohibitions by employers
knowledge implosion
“Knowledge Implosion”
  • Architects, engineers and other professionals are suffering from a virtual shutdown of information and knowledge sharing
    • Plenty of regulations
    • But a complete absence of clear guidelines for what can and can’t be shared
  • “Wizard of Oz” effect (what’s really behind that curtain…?)
major contribution by aei
Major Contribution by AEI
  • Outstanding symposium program
  • Open atmosphere of information and knowledge sharing
  • Experienced, knowledgeable professionals
    • Despite the lack of formal, published guidelines, they have the necessary professional intuition and sense of what can and can’t be said
report card next steps
Report Card: Next Steps
  • Federal, state and local actions
  • Hopefully, will raise awareness of the overall condition of our infrastructure and our collective mindset about maintenance, rehabilitation and replacement
    • Policy makers
    • Owners
    • Professionals
what you can do
What You Can Do…
  • Consider poor and failing infrastructure systems as you design and engineer your projects
  • Use your good, professional judgment on sharing of information and knowledge — trust your instincts
  • Let your elected officials know you’re concerned about the condition of the nation’s infrastructure
