We had ten students attend the ACE Mentor San Pedro Creek Construction Project field trip last night. We left immediately after school and returned at 6:35 PM. They were shown around by the lead civil engineer on the project from SAWS and the construction firm’s site engineer. Also in attendance were a landscape architect, a MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing engineer), and a civil engineer who facilitated this trip. The students learned the creek’s use and (300 year) history, the stake holders, project deadlines, technology and design involved in this project. They toured the whole site including being escorted through six normally locked gates. They also were shown how the project fits into the wider plans of what is developing downtown.
