When you think of a construction site, you might picture bulldozers, workers in hard hats, and huge iron beams being shifted into place. You might not imagine robots, drones, and 3D printers, but they are becoming essential equipment on modern building sites. The field of construction is changing quickly as project managers rely more on interactive apps than blueprints, and on images from autonomous drones rather than hand drawn schematics. Your readers will explore how construction is merging with technology today, and what it means for a career tomorrow.

Careers in technical education (CTE), also known as vo-tech careers, are believed to be among the best options for increasing students’ future earning power. Architecture and construction are areas that fall clearly within the CTE/vo-tech category. This volume prepares young people who are interested in specific architectural and construction fields, such as electronics, architectural woodworking, and heavy equipment operation. Readers also learn about designing their own CTE programs as well as what to do once they’re out of high school. This title is an invaluable roadmap for young people looking for a promising future in these areas.

FIDIC contracts are the most widely used contracts for international construction around the world and are used in many different jurisdictions, both common law and civil law. For any construction project, the General Conditions of Contract published by FIDIC need to be supplemented by Particular Conditions that specify the specific requirements of that project. FIDIC Contracts in Europe: A Practical Guide to Application provides readers with detailed guidance and resources for the preparation of the Particular Conditions that will comply with the requirements of the applicable laws that apply to the site where the work is carried out, and for the governing law of the contract, for a number of the jurisdictions in which FIDIC contracts are used. This book closely follows the format of The International Application of FIDIC Contracts, with the addition of an outline of the construction industry and information on the impact of COVID-19 on both the execution and operation of construction contracts in each jurisdiction. This book is essential reading for construction professionals, lawyers and students of construction law.

This report contains 27 papers that serve as a testament to the state-of-the-art of civil engineering at the outset of the 21st century, as well as to commemorate the ASCE's Sesquicentennial. Written by the leading practitioners, educators, and researchers of civil engineering, each of these peer-reviewed papers explores a particular aspect of civil engineering knowledge and practice. Each paper explores the development of a particular civil engineering specialty, including milestones and future barriers, constraints, and opportunities. The papers celebrate the history, heritage, and accomplishments of the profession in all facets of practice, including construction facilities, special structures, engineering mechanics, surveying and mapping, irrigation and water quality, forensics, computing, materials, geotechnical engineering, hydraulic engineering, and transportation engineering. While each paper is unique, collectively they provide a snapshot of the profession while offering thoughtful predictions of likely developments in the years to come. Together the papers illuminate the mounting complexity facing civil engineering stemming from rapid growth in scientific knowledge, technological development, and human populations, especially in the last 50 years. An overarching theme is the need for systems-level approaches and consideration from undergraduate education through advanced engineering materials, processes, technologies, and design methods and tools. These papers speak to the need for civil engineers of all specialties to recognize and embrace the growing interconnectedness of the global infrastructure, economy, society, and the need to work for more sustainable, life-cycle-oriented solutions. While embracing the past and the present, the papers collected here clearly have an eye on the future needs of ASCE and the civil engineering profession.
