    Designing Modern Park Facilities Part 2 of 3: Urban vs Rural Park Planning – A/E and Landscape Architect Perspectives

    Engineers and Landscape Architects possess different skill sets, have different roles in project design and may have fundamentally different approaches to problem solving. A recent discussion with local landscape architect, SWT Design, revealed that both parties were in agreement when it comes to the social and environmental considerations for modern urban and rural park facility designs.

    Designing Modern Park Facilities: Part 1 of 3 Internal and External Building Components – The Unsung Heroes of Park Facilities

    The National Recreation and Park Association (NPRA) estimate that Americans visit their local parks and recreation facilities an average of 29 times per year. Forest Park alone attracts 13 million visitors annually, and one-day events such as the Great Forest Park Balloon Race attracts thousands of visitors in a single day. With this type of high usage by the general public, it’s no wonder that park facilities, such as pavilions and comfort stations, can take a real beating and be the unfortunate targets of graffiti and other types of vandalism.

    The Pantograph Barrier: Part 1 of 4 Of Pantographs & Wires

    The marriage of the pantograph and the catenary has been wonderfully stable and productive for 120 years, but the insurgence of high speed trains has started to reveal a “Pantograph Barrier”. This four-part series will examine the technical issues that have caused this 120-year-old technology’s inherent limitations and how advances can lead to the operation and initiation of new, truly high speed intercity services. Part one will begin with the history of overhead electrification technology and where the technology is today.

    Energy and Cost Saving Strategies for Operating Rooms

    ORs are incredibly profitable when they are active, but healthcare facilities lose money when they are unused. Operating costs for ORs are susceptible to a variety of factors that affect profit such as disposable medical supplies, drug prescription waste, schedule delays, etc. But one money-saving factor is often overlooked: HVAC systems setbacks.
