More and more regulators and resource agencies are asking for or requiring project plans that “design with nature”.
Are you interested in incorporating Biotechnical (Bioengineering) and Environmentally Sensitive Methods into the work you are designing or reviewing? Looking for more information? Reviewing case studies, especially those that have “passed the test of time”, are one of the best ways to determine efficacy, appropriateness and reliability of Bioengineering Techniques.
Don Gray, M.ASCE, recently received the Ralph A. Peck Award for developing new methodologies, design recommendations, and procedures for environmentally friendly biostabilization techniques. Professor emeritus of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Michigan, Gray has made major and long-standing contributions in the broader field of geoenvironmental engineering, soil behavior, and soil reinforcement, and for decades he has carried out research on soil reinforcement and the influence of woody vegetation on the stability of slopes. Don’t miss this opportunity to view Don’s 2015 Ralph A. Peck Award lecture at IFCEE 2015 San Antonio, Texas.
