Consulting-Specifying Engineer's Top 5 most read articles online, for November 28-December 4, covered the salaries of engineers, assessing replacement electrical systems, BIM driving models and advanced technologies, circuit protection, and evaluating the other side of BIM. Link to each article below.

1. How does your salary stack up?

Consulting engineers share information about compensation, accreditation, age, retirement goals, and business development via a national salary survey.

2. Assessing replacement of electrical systems

Replacement of electrical systems is a study of economics and risk. Factors including age, safety, reliability, efficiency, and energy costs must be weighed in conjunction with replacement costs and liability risk to formulate and prioritize upgrade plans. A comprehensive cost-benefit analysis study for each electrical subsystem will allow facilities to plan short-term and long-term expenditures for maintenance and upgrade programs for prudent facility reinvestments, replacements, and growth. 

3. BIM drives new organization models and advanced technologies

The impact on the way buildings are designed is changed forever with the adoption for BIM platforms.

4. Your questions answered: Critical power: Circuit protection
