Today we break down the literature for exterior and interior pathways. We limit our study to the human pathways (as in egress and ingress paths); not wiring or piping pathways -- a complex topic on its own. The topic necessarily cuts across several disciplines and requires titles from many standards setting organizations; including regulations in the Americans with Disabilities Act and with sensitivity to the safety of pets and livestock.
Major research universities are stakeholders in policy templates for town-gown infrastructure development. Public review drafts from working groups administered by the Association Française de Normalisation arrive at a fairly brisk pace as this list reveals. ANSI seeks a United States Technical Advisory Group Administrator.

College campuses are the closest many people come to living in a beautiful city. The catalog of literature that informs the safety and sustainability of these "cities-within-cities" changes 100 to 1000 times per day. Many of titles in this catalog are unstable, time-sensitive and copyright protected. We break down the action in this widely scattered catalog every day, assign priorities, then schedule a separate teleconference to formulate responses to public consultations. Daily colloquia topics are shown on our CALENDAR.

"Regular concrete has a number of problems that we did not realize as an engineering community 50 years ago. Our infrastructure has deteriorated at a faster rate than we thought" -- Professor Sherif-El-Tawil, Civil and Environmental Engineering.
