Spent my Friday at the #ramboll #Aarhus office. A massive public investment has been made to restore the river going through the city centre. This morning it was quite and beautiful, on a sunny afternoon it is busy and packed with people. It brings life and refreshes the concrete urban core. Water creates spaces that other mediums cannot. #water #urbanexploration #urban #urbandesign #citiesforpeople
In the month of June I am working at an engineering consulting company in Oslo (Ramboll) that focuses on Buildings, Transport, Environment, Energy, Oil & Gas, and Management Consulting.
They recognize that, “industrial development, urbanization, the extraction of natural resources and extreme weather all call for sustainable and responsible environmental solutions”.
They “create truly integrated solutions to benefit both customers and society”.
They work with:
- climate change and urban water solutions
- ESIA and sustainable development
- environmental management and compliance
- resource scarcity and waste management solutions
- planning & design of water & waste water infrastructure
These are all issues I care deeply about, and it inspires me to see a multinational company working in all of them. Ramboll says they employ “sustainable society consultants” and that is what I want to see every employer do.
That they especially mention industrial development pushes me to keep spreading the word of industrial ecology.
Places do something to people and people do something to places. The city of #Copenhagen is sharing its new strategy for “connectedness”. #sharingCPH #minby #cph #ramboll #liveability #livability #citiesforpeople @guardiancities
The East Bridge between is 6,790 m long, and spans between Zealand and Sprogø. the bridge consists of a sub-structure and a superstructure.
The concrete sub-structure comprises of pylons, anchor blocks, bridge piers and abutments, while the steel superstructure comprises of bridge spans and cables. The suspension bridge between the two anchor blocks is approx. 2,700 m long, and is connected to 23 approach spans (14 from Zealand and 9 from Sprogø). — at Korsør, Zealand, Denmark.
“STEM at ABM ka ba? Ang hirap mong intindihing pucha ka,eh.”
Higit pitong oras akong nagsha-shade ng maliliit na bilog kahapon. The other day,sabi ko sa sarili ko “Sus basic lang yan” pero shet tuwing may katiting na lagpas sa shade ko parang guguho ang mundo ko! “Hala,baka hindi tanggapin ng machine” “Paano na future ko neto” nagra-rambol na lahat sa utak ko. Isama pa yung nakakainis na STEM at ABM na yun.
And after 7 hours of dying,dumiretso naman ako sa ibang school para umattend ng Press Conference aka Journalism. Partida,unang pasok ko palang nagsisimula na sila mag-cartooning. Hindi na ako nakaabot sa lecture.
Maghapon na nga ako nag-shade,pati ba naman dito?
Alam ko sa sarili ko na hindi ko nagawa ang best ko. I admit it. Pero hindi ko na talaga kaya. Feeling ko,hihiwalay na yung kaliwang kamay ko (Kaway kaway mga leftie) Kung alam mo lang ang struggle ng mga kaliwete. Maghapong walang pinapatungan ang siko. Sinong di mangangalay? LMAO. After cartooning,diretso na ako ng feature writing. Again,sabaw na sabaw pa utak ko sa kakapiga kanina e.
Kanina,2nd day of DSPC,sumali naman ako sa Science News Writing. For a change. First timer ako,akala ko meron ako nung “beginner’s luck” pero shet nung awarding tinawag school namin sa first place,akala ko ako,yun pala schoolmate ko HAHAHAHA yes ako na talaga assuming.
I got one award. Feature Writing,8th place. Nagsisisi ako,sana pala nag-stick ako sa Filipino instead of English para 1st ulit ako tulad ng last year. Pero okay lang,siguro araw ito nung nanalo sa pagsulat ng lathalain. Lesson learned.
Energy production is facing increasing challenges from a public pressure to reduce its environmental foot print. At the same time the market is characterised by a strong competition on energy prices. Read on and see how Ramboll experts meet the challenges.
With a strong competition on energy prices it is crucial to optimise energy production. The solution is to be found in knowhow, practical experience in implementation and a strong focus on strategic economic excellence and energy efficiency.
Built between 1991 and 1998 at a cost of US$950 million, the East Bridge (Østbroen) is a suspension bridge between Halsskov and Sprogø. It is 6,790 metres (22,277 ft) long with a free span of 1,624 metres (5,328 ft), making it the world’s third-longest suspension bridge span, surpassed only by the Akashi Kaikyō Bridge and Xihoumen Bridge. Designed by the Danish engineering firms COWI and Ramboll. The link replaced the ferry service that had been the primary means of crossing the Great Belt. Officially opened in 14 June 1998. — at Korsør, Zealand, Denmark.
The West Bridge (Vestbroen) is a box girder bridge between Sprogø and Knudshoved. It is 6,611 metres (21,690 ft) long, and has a vertical clearance for ships of 18 metres (59 ft). It is actually two separate, adjacent bridges: the northern one carries rail traffic with two sets of rail track, and the southern one for road traffic with four-lanes. The pillars of the two bridges rest on common foundations below sea level. The West Bridge was built between 1988 and 1994; its road/rail deck comprises 63 sections, supported by 62 pillars. The Great Belt Fixed Link is Denmark’s hitherto largest civil works project and Europe’s longest combined road and railway bridge. — at Sprogø and Knudshoved, Denmark.
