I’ve always admired the impact buildings and spaces have on the human experience. What keeps me in the profession is our unique opportunity—and responsibility— to steer the future of the building industry towards a more sustainable future. With most building-related embodied carbon emissions coming from the structure itself, engineers have a responsibility to lead meaningful change for future generations to come.”
