Cassie Reiter, PE, ENV SP – a leading proponent of sustainability in the civil engineering community – has been sharing her expertise at industry meetings in the Midwest this spring. The CMT project manager was among the first in the country to be certified as an Envision Sustainable Professional by the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure and she has since gone on to become a project verifier and trainer through the organization. These qualifications and her wealth of practical experience providing sustainable solutions for infrastructure projects has made Reiter a sought-after expert.
“As the world’s population grows and continues to impact the environment, the civil engineering community needs to evaluate how we can incorporate sustainable designs into projects as we continue into the 21st century,” Reiter said.
On April 20, Reiter gave a presentation at the Institute of Transportation Engineers-Great Lakes District’s annual meeting in Dayton, Ohio. Titled, “Enhancing Transportation Performance through the Use of ISI’s Envision System,” the presentation highlighted the benefits of sustainable solutions as demonstrated on CMT projects involving downtown street rehabilitations, new interchanges, ADA improvements, and resurfacing..
Earlier in April, Reiter addressed attendees at the ASCE Indiana State Section meeting in Carmel, Indiana. She and two other members from the Sustainability Committee of the ASCE Metropolitan Indianapolis branch gave a presentation that highlighted the triple-bottom-line of sustainability and introduced attendees to the Envision system.
Reiter is committed to spreading the word on sustainability to industry groups, while continuing to apply its principles on infrastructure projects that benefit the communities that CMT serves.
