WHO WE ARE

The Society of American Military Engineers is the only nonprofit professional engineering education organization that actively promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering capabilities of governments, the uniformed services and private industry.

Our goal is to unite public and private sector entities and individuals in the A/E/C fields so that we can prepare for and overcome natural and man made disasters, acts of terrorism and improve security at home and abroad.

The Chicago Post accomplishes this goal locally by supporting monthly luncheon meetings and other professional/social activities attended by members of local government, military, private industry, students and other interested parties. These meetings are announced via our e-mail distribution list and quarterly newsletter. We are supported by the national Society of American Military Engineers and publications such as The Military Engineer, which also promotes the interests and goals of our society and its members. Please peruse our website to discover the benefits of SAME Chicago Post membership.

Description:
The City of Chicago’s Department of Planning and Design developed a pilot project that aims to activate blighted corridors in underserved neighborhoods and use green infrastructure to reduce the risk of basement backups. This project included the design of ten lots along three commercial corridors that are characterized by street-facing public spaces with interspersed plazas, pocket parks, and community gardens.  The innovative designs capture stormwater from the City right-of-way and convey it into the lots for detention. Stormwater monitoring equipment is being installed on three of the sites with a cloud based data management system.
