Land Development Projects: Design of Infrastructure
Land Development projects shape our communities and in many occasions create them. The primary goal of this interactive, online course is to assist planners, architects, engineers and contractors in developing a framework for optimizing infrastructure design that supports land development projects using guidelines from AASHTO, Urban Land Institute, Ten State Standards and other public and private organizations. The diversity of land development projects mirror our needs as a society. Even though they can be classified as commercial, residential, industrial, professional, institutional or governmental in nature they still need to be sustained by the same type of civil infrastructure. As our cities expand and population densities increase our infrastructure network has had to increase and adapt to serve our growing needs. This increase in capacity requirements has made ever more important the need to have efficient infrastructure designs.
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Apply recommendations from due diligence or feasibility studies
- Recognize areas where additional technical information is needed
- Identify sources for information about private and public utilities
- Recognize basic principles for stormwater management
- Determine the operational transportation needs for specific projects
- AEC Complete
- Construction & Trades

First class I've taken on red vector so far so take my comments with a grain of salt. I thought this was a good overview overall. Would have liked to see a little more detail in certain areas. Also having a lot of smaller sections seems like a mistake; many of them could be combined to save loading times.
