DCI's Commitment to a More Sustainable Future


With 11% of global carbon emissions coming from building materials & construction, structural engineers have an unprecedented opportunity and responsibility to change that number.


As engineers, we can make impactful change by way of the structure, providing one that will outlive the many cycles of tenant improvements and building system upgrades for years to come.


But change doesn't happen within a silo. It requires education at all levels and buy-in from project partners. Thankfully, sustainable design is possible, and its implementation is becoming more streamline with each year and every project.
