Time to Build: Prioritizing Investments to Make Infrastructure Not Just Newer, But Smarter

The country’s infrastructure recently received its second straight D+ grade from the American Society of Civil Engineers. But with the Administration, members of Congress, and three out of four citizens endorsing new infrastructure investment, now is the opportunity to prioritize investments and continue raising the bar for our infrastructure’s ongoing safety, effectiveness, and sustainability. Siemens works with cities across the U.S. to put technology to work that reduces energy, improves our transportation systems, makes buildings smarter, and revitalizes our manufacturing base.

Siemens, a global technology company with approximately 50,000 employees in the U.S., is proud to serve as a partner in this year’s Infrastructure Week. This national effort is led by mayors, city leaders, policymakers, industry and business leaders, and infrastructure experts, and is designed to elevate infrastructure as a critical issue impacting all Americans.

Siemens’ infrastructure highlights include Orem, Utah, where Siemens energy efficient technology will help the city save approximately $11.4 million in energy and operational cost savings through a 15-year performance contract. And Seattle, where Siemens intelligent software is changing traffic patterns in real-time and reducing travel time on some of the busiest days by nearly 15 minutes. In addition, cities like Charlotte, N.C., Orlando, Fla.; and Pittsburgh, Pa., are partnering with Siemens to implement a City Performance Tool through which they can use data to evaluate the environmental and economic impact of building, transportation, and energy technologies to better plan for the future.
