As is the case in smaller metropolitan areas across the U.S., the Treasure Valley area of Southwest Idaho and Southeast Oregon has been experiencing substantial growth in recent years, and it shows little sign of slowing down.
Local estimates from the Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS) indicate that the current population of just over 600,000 could top one million by 2040, which would be an increase of more than 70 percent. With the influx of people comes the increasingly loud demand that better attention be paid to land use, transportation and otherwise accommodating people in ways that benefit the community while also being mindful of the impact of growth on the environment.
As the Treasure Valley continues to grow, the role of civil engineering in Idaho cannot be underestimated. Civil engineers play a key part in the process of transforming places like the Treasure Valley through their attention to building quality structures, safe and efficient transportation channels and much more. They also provide much-needed input and advice during the planning process to ensure that clients’ visions are realized in a feasible, responsible manner, balancing the clients’ budgets with the need for highly functional buildings and other structures.
Growth is more than just people
In addition to and as a result of the population growth, there has been high demand for new construction in Boise, Meridian, Nampa and the rest of the Treasure Valley region. New residents need places to live, their employers need more office space to accommodate a growing work force, more hotels are needed to accommodate those traveling here on business, new schools have to be built for a growing population of young people, restaurants and retail shops are popping up because the communities can support them—and demand will only continue to increase as more people come here.
With all of this additional building going on, the need for strong civil engineering in Idaho is greater than ever. An experienced firm is necessary to handle the surveying and land development planning needs of local clients, and given the added strain on the agencies and companies tasked with serving the building industry, quality civil engineers are in high demand.
