About the Book

Infrastructure from the Ground Up focuses on horizontal construction---the infrastructure and civil engineering works that are prevalent in our daily lives. We have reached an age when large amounts of this national infrastructure are coming to the end of their useful lives, requiring substantial amounts of money for investment in repair and replacement.

Significant construction projects mean significant legal organization and planning, as well as construction disputes. Infrastructure from the Ground Up provides lawyers with valuable, detailed information on the basics of the major types of infrastructure projects. Understanding the fundamental concepts of these projects gives an attorney an advantage in effectively representing their client.

Topics include:
  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Water and Wastewater Systems
  • Roads and Highways
  • Solid Waste Management
  • Bridges
  • Railroads
  • Power Generation
