Building a Better World

Infrastructure and public works facilities support essential functions necessary for commerce and the health, safety, and welfare of the population. Public infrastructure includes transportation (bridges, highways, waterways, rail lines), water supply (pipelines, reservoirs, treatment plants), drainage and flood control (dams, basins, levees/embankments), energy (power lines, power plants), telecommunications (fiber optic, cellular), and other private and publicly-owned structures and facilities. As part of efforts to prevent the gradual deterioration of the nation’s public and private infrastructure, Aspen has played a significant role in the environmental evaluation of both public and private infrastructure projects by providing the technical expertise necessary to ensure the uninterrupted continued operation of infrastructure that affects and improves our daily lives, while ensuring the health and safety of the population.
