Bayer: Using Unprecedented Insights in Unexpected Ways on the Farm

Summary: 

What’s the value of data? Well, like any other tool, it depends on how you use it. In agriculture, data is proving to be an essential foundation for building more efficient, productive and profitable businesses. It’s also revealing opportunities many never thought possible, such as providing selective inputs across entire fields on a plant-by-plant basis or even informing strategies for farms to actively pull carbon out of the atmosphere. But perhaps the most powerful aspect of data is that farms around the world already produce it. They always have. And now, it’s becoming easier for farmers to benefit from it.

Wood You Believe: Mass Timber Leading a Renaissance in Modern Construction

WSP is advancing the use of low-carbon engineered wood products for tall building construction, which provides structural strength and durability beyond traditional lumber.
Article

Driven by demand for low-carbon buildings and enabled by advances in the manufacturing of engineered wood products, mass timber buildings are rapidly growing larger in size and capturing greater shares of construction markets in Europe, North America and elsewhere.

In a response to this trend, building codes that once limited timber buildings to 85 feet maximum — or a 5- to 6-story maximum — now allow up to 18 stories, or 270 feet.

Balancing Action With Affordability in Water Infrastructure Development

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law creates expanded funding opportunities for water utilities to significantly improve operations … provided the right criteria are addressed.
Article

As water becomes an increasingly scarce resource in California and across the United States, water and wastewater infrastructure owners are being pushed to explore more expensive sources, while keeping rates as low as possible for consumers.

With most of the easier or cheaper options already attempted or used, this task has proven to be a formidable challenge for owners.

Differential rates – charging rates based on one’s ability to pay – are not always an option and owners must evaluate the impacts to all ratepayers and find the best option possible for all consumers.
