Ha’il City Value Engineering Study Complete

Chen Moore and Associates worked as part of a value engineering team for a value planning and design review session for the Ha’il City Expansion project in the Ha’il Region in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This first session related to the infrastructure designs for Phase I of the master development, comprised of residential, commercial, governmental and religous land uses. The infrastructure was divided into eight categories that were reviewed at length: electrical, lighting, roadway, landscaping, irrigation, potable water, sewerage and stormwater. The session resulted in numerous design suggestions and 12 value engineering proposals with a potential savings of SAR 27.9 million in capital costs, SAR 6.4 million in potential additional real estate and SAR 34.0 million in potential deferred costs.

Taiwan Cross-Strait Environmental Summit

Taiwan Cross-Strait Environmental Summit

Dr. Chen recently visited Taiwan to attend the Cross-Strait Environmental Summit. He visited many places from his youth, including the Ambassador hotel, his high school and the Palace Museum in Taipei. There is only one building left from when Dr. Chen attended in 1960. He attended both middle and high school there from 1957 to 1963; now it is just a high school. There are very few landmarks in Taipei that Dr. Chen and his wife recognized, although all the street names are familiar. Dr. Chen also attended the Cross-Strait Environmental Summit. The two-day summit in Taipei attracted about 150 environmental experts from Taiwan, China and the U.S., who discussed air pollution, waste management and the potential for environmental cooperation across the Taiwan Strait, among other topics.
