Inside civil engineering
Just this fall, El Paso, Texas completed a $1 million dollar community development project, giving the youth of El Paso a 15,000 square foot skate park with a below ground concrete bowl, skate obstacles, lighting, accessible sidewalks, and a modified irrigation system. Designers and site planners for this state-of-the-art park included many sustainable features to ensure that the park operated in an environmentally responsible way. Technically, they provided the latest ideas and technology in action sports design. Using AutoCad for construction documents and intergraph "inroads" for modeling, animation, slope analysis, volume calculations, and more, they created a high quality setting pleasing both to the skater and spectator!
