New Infrastructure technology – ‘Gamechangers’ awarded by the American Society of Civil Engineers
Every year the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) honors infrastructure projects around the country that showcase innovative ways of constructing roads, building bridges and treating water.
Whether they’re unique, niche innovations or ways to cope with an ever-changing landscape of funding and regulations, the ASCE Infrastructure Gamechangers can provide contractors across the country with a roadmap for creative problem-solving.
ASCE recently added 12 gamechangers to its list of honorees. Some that have the biggest ramifications for the construction industry this year are:
