The Colorado Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers was formed in 1909. Since then the Section has been actively involved in the advancement of the science and profession of civil engineering in the great state of Colorado.
The Colorado Section of the ASCE allows civil engineers who live and/or work in the Colorado community to network, exchange ideas, build leadership skills and create lifelong professional connections. We are continually looking for motivated volunteers.
Aurora West Civil Engineering Club participated in the 2017 Parking Lot Design Contest organized by ASCE Hawaii Section. The contest includes three parts: The plan, The Report and A video presentation.
The team composed of four students: Left to right. Angel Dominguez, Ramon Estupiñan, Jesus Marquez, Tony Soto (Not in the photo) and the Director Roger L. Torres.
The objectives of our design were: to improve parking efficiency, controlled by aisles and entrances/exits, maximum number of stalls, and landscaping to minimize the asphalt paved area. A set of rules, guidelines, cost worksheet, and design standards were provided by the organizing team.
The experience was quite beneficial to the students, as they learned and practiced engineering concepts that included design process, team work and brain storming. Students also used design standards, design restrictions, sustainability and risk concepts. All tasks were performed as an engineer at an engineering consulting firm.
