2017 ISPE Annual Convention

2017 ISPE Annual Convention
2017 ISPE Annual Convention - July 20-21, 2017
Engineers Dream Big.

Throughout 2017, we celebrate the Big Dreams of Engineers.    The Giant Screen Film, Dream Big - Engineering Our World, features engineering marvels worldwide; from Dubai’s record-high skyscrapers to bridges soaring through clouds.  Audiences experience the massive scale and forces of nature that challenge engineers.  Dream Big showcases the ingenuity needed to create engineering marvels as well as the compassion that drives engineers to create better lives for all.

July 20-21, 2017, ISPE will showcase how our Illinois Engineers Dream Big - and make a difference in our own communities, and throughout the world.  

Join us for the 2017 ISPE convention as demonstrate how Illinois Engineers' dreams became reality.  Check out:

  • Hanson created a business line incorporating UAVs into engineering to reduce time, save costs, and increase safety. (We'll also present the regulations, tools, and liability risks surrounding UAVs).
  • Knight EA used a pre-cast concrete to replace bridges in Springfield's Washington Park, working in environmentally sensitive areas and keeping a beloved park functioning during construction.  
  • Gage Engineering provided MEP design and engineering for a state of the art CCU at Delnor Hospital, utilizing a LEAN project approach to increase speed to market without minimizing quality.
  • MWRD implemented two different approaches to achieve effluent disinfection at the O'Brian and Calumet Water Reclamation Plants, including the world's largest ultraviolet disinfection facility.
  • Engineers from Baxter Woodman and Engineers without Borders brought water to 500 children in Kenya via teamwork and problem solving.
  • And so much more!
