2016 California Design Firm of the Year

Carollo is very proud (and a little bit humbled) to have been selected by Engineering News-Record (ENR) as its 2016 California Design Firm of the Year. This is a huge honor, given not just the spread and size of the California market, but also the impressive list of engineering companies in the state. While we owe much of this honor to the hard work of our employees across the entire company, an equal measure goes to the clients who have supported our "water is all we do" philosophy and have trusted us over the years to help us make water our focus, our business, and our passion....

Mechanisms On Why 'Green' Helps in Urban Life

Biological Mechanism for Health Benefits of Urban Greenery and on the Methodology to Expand Research Efforts

Date: August 2, 2016

Summary: New research finds that airborne bacterial communities differ from one urban park to the next but those of parking lots are alike -- and differ from those of parks in subtle but potentially important ways.

New research finds that airborne bacterial communities differ from one urban park to the next but those of parking lots are alike -- and differ from those of parks in subtle but potentially important ways.

At a glance, such findings seem intuitive. Parks often have different vegetation in them, and asphalt-covered parking lots are much the same -- barren asphalt bombarded by solar radiation as well as heavy metals and fuel from motor vehicles.

The importance, according to University of Oregon researchers, is that this pilot study describes not only the differences in microbial communities but also how far from a park the influence may extend.

Recent studies suggest that the composition of the bacterial communities may be important to human health -- and not in the ways you think, says Gwynne Mhuireach, a doctoral student in landscape architecture who led the new study that is online ahead of print in the journal Science of the Total Environment. There is a reason, she says, to believe that healthy air depends not just on the absence of bad things like pollutants, but the presence of good things such as bacteria with which humans have co-evolved.

"We're starting to build larger and more complex cities," Mhuireach said. "I am interested in ways to help maintain people's health and happiness as we do so. Some studies say that as...click here to continue.
