Construction work in China is taking place at a frenzied pace the last few years, but since all that new infrastructure requires space, in many occasions buildings have to be torn down and residents to move in order to make room for new projects. There are however, dwellings that stand alone like a nail that refuses to be hammered down, the so-called ‘nail houses’, when owners resist dispossession of their land by developers or hold out for better compensations.

New York City, like other older urban communities, is largely serviced by a combined sewer system where storm water and wastewater are carried through a single sewer line to the city’s 14 treatment plants. These facilities can manage and treat all the wastewater produced in the city on a dry weather day (1.3 billion gallons on average) and also have the capacity to clean more than twice the dry weather flows on a rainy day. But during intense precipitation events, the storm water exceeds this capacity and overflows can be discharged into local waterways. In an effort to improve water quality, the city’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is building rain gardens, designed to absorb polluted storm water that would otherwise end up into the sewer system.

It was April 4, 2017, when the work of tunneling machine Bertha was complete, breaking through into her disassembly pit and marking the end of the 1.75-mile long State Route 99 (SR 99) tunnel beneath Seattle. Now, the Washington State Department of Transportation released a drone video that shows the ongoing construction work from end-to-end inside the tunnel.

Hayward Baker, Inc.  is pleased to announce George K. Burke, P.E., D.GE, has been named the 2017 recipient of DFI’s Distinguished Service Award.
