Engineers Week 2015

On the occasion of Engineer's Week and Women's Engineers Day last week, we asked several of our engineers to reflect on what excites them about ‪‎Structural Engineering‬ and of course what we do here as engineers. We posted their answers on our different social media platforms throught the week. Here are some of the responses:

"Collaboration and team work! We help solve real-world problems as a team to create amazing architecture. Whether learning from the in-house expertise at LERA or collaborating with Architects and Contractors, the process and evolution of problem solving is fascinating." ~ Michael

"Working together to use our diverse skills to contribute to the beauty and quality of the built environment is very satisfying to me." ~ Monica
