Inflation and Shortage Supply Impacts

Inflation and Shortage Supply Impacts

We have all been witnessing price inflation, whether it is at the gas station or at the grocery store. Both inflation and material shortage have become part of our design considerations when we select and specify materials for our projects.  The approach has been further emphasized over the last couple of years: the Architectural Engineering and Construction (AEC) community should initiate design and construction projects with a thorough understanding of material availability, fabrication, delivery lead time, projected construction index price, and an evaluation of equivalent alternatives. Just a couple of weeks ago, I sat in a meeting and heard the developer of a large residential project in Orange County had to pre-order water conveyance steel pipes from a U.S. manufacturer, agreeing to a 9-month lead time as a significant share of the steel pipe supply was historically imported from Russia.

Here are a couple of numbers I thought are relevant in characterizing both inflation and the supply chain over the last 16 months:

  1. The Construction Index issued by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has risen from 140.4 (January 2021) to 174.3 (April 2022).  As a proxy, this means that our engineer’s estimates of probable costs would have increased by 25% since January 2021.
  2. As of May 6, 2022, only 35 ships were waiting to unload their cargo at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, compared to a record high of 109 in January 2022 (link).  The Ports have worked tremendously to reduce the number of empty containers sitting on dock space by 28%, allowing ships to unload more quickly. 

Ongoing events may contribute to the future volatility of the market, including geopolitical outcomes of the conflict in Ukraine, the lockdown in Shanghai affecting the world’s largest cargo-handling port, union negotiations at the Ports, and the measures implemented by the Federal Reserve to fight off inflation. The bottom line for us (civil engineers) is to reinforce the benefits of a project kickoff to evaluate all economic factors and material availability.

Switching gears, last month, our Orange County Branch celebrated exceptional individuals and outstanding projects at the 2022 ASCE OC Annual Awards Night.  Please congratulate our awardees (listed at the end of this article) as you encounter them in the future.

Finally, I invite you to attend our numerous in-person events these spring and summer seasons.  Our committees have been working hard to resolve the logistical challenges inherent to this endemic era.  As we ramp up the implementation of quality events, our goal is to restore attendance and excitement to pre-pandemic levels.  I look forward to seeing you all at our events.

That’s a wrap. ‘Til next time, take care of yourselves, and please reach out with any questions or suggestions.

ASCE OC Branch

Annual Awards Night 2022

Familiar faces came together in familiar spaces as ASCE Orange County Branch returned to the City National Grove in Anaheim on Tuesday, April 12, 2022, to celebrate our annual Awards Night. Over 200 people, including local civil engineers, elected officials, family, and friends, joined us to recognize the 20 projects and 17 people selected by the Branch’s Awards and Nominations Committee for engineering excellence and contributions to our community. The theme for this year’s Awards Night was Legos, the building blocks that have inspired many careers in STEM (including mine). Legos also served as inspiration for one of this year’s raffle prizes (tickets to Legoland) and the evening came to a fun close with chairs literally being turned over to find Lego pieces that would send one person from each table home with one of the two Lego sets below.

As with years past, this year’s Awards Night showcased the talent, ambition, and execution that continually makes Orange County a recognized leader in the civil engineering community.

In addition to the award-winning projects and people listed above, I also had the privilege of presenting this year’s President’s Award to Chuck Karunathilake (Design Engineer II at Mark Thomas). Chuck has been critical to the continued success of our Branch and I am lucky to have had the opportunity to recognize him for his contributions to our local ASCE community, which have included positions as Past-President of the Cal State Long Beach student chapter and ASCE Orange County Branch’s Younger Member Forum (YMF), and co-chair of the Social Committee that helps plan our marquee events each year (including Awards Night).

Chuck is joined on this year’s Social Committee by his co-chair, Jazzy Principe, and a group of dedicated individuals (Janelle Gonzalez, Victor Aguirre, Esmeralda Briseno, Ashlyn Alexander, Jason Fix, Tom Broz, Nestor Godinez, and Remi Candaele) that are each outstanding in their own right and move mountains together. Planning Awards Night, particularly after the COVID-induced hiatus, is truly a herculean task and our Social Committee will forever have my gratitude for making this year’s event such a memorable experience. Special thanks are also in order for our event sponsors (Ninyo & Moore, Diaz Yourman & Associates, LPA, GMU Geotechnical, FountainHead, TransTech, VCA Engineers, Rancho Mission Viejo, TetraTech, SPC Engineering, and Ware Malcomb); our annual sponsors; our Awards and Nominations Committee; and our Community Service Committee, which helped organize a clothing drive through Clothes The Deal, an organization that helps low-income men, women, at-risk youth, and U.S. Veterans in need of professional business attire.

Each year, Awards Night is a consistent reminder of how ASCE excels at bringing people together. Planning usually starts several months in advance and the process is one that forges strong relationships for those involved. The event itself creates a unique buzz of excitement that is, in no small part, related to reconnecting with old friends, meeting new ones, and celebrating their accomplishments. For me, personally, this year’s event enabled me to share with my wife and daughter the fruits of my work-from-home labor, which is something they don’t often have an opportunity to see. So, if you have ever wondered whether you should get involved with ASCE, I can think of no better example than Awards Night as a reason to take the plunge because the lesson, as always, is that you will get more out of ASCE than you put in.

ASCE OC Mentorship Program

Mid Year Check-In Picnic

On Saturday, April 2, 2022, the ASCE OC Mentorship Program gathered an intimate group to check in and celebrate our mid-year point for the cohort. The 21-22 Mentorship Program met at the beautiful Bill Barber Memorial Park in Irvine to catch up, and discuss the ins and outs of the program, and where each relationship has progressed. Activities included a leadership style survey, scavenger hunt, engaged discussions of mentorship, and of course tacos.

The event began with each participant filling out a leadership style survey to identify if the person leaned towards "Directive", "Consultative", or "Free Rein" leadership styles. As the Mentorship Committee organized group discussions based on the leadership style surveys, the participants conducted a scavenger hunt of various features of the Bill Barber Memorial Park. Participants were paired with other members they have not met directly which enabled a fun and new opportunity to make a new colleague and friend. Given we had a more intimate group, everyone was able to receive ASCE OC polos as prizes!

Mentorship Program 2021-2022 Mid-Year Check-In Attendees + Doggo!

The bulk of the event was filled with deep discussions on how the leadership styles presented guided past work and team dynamics. And how different styles can be used currently and in the future to efficiently complete projects, mold productive teams, and how to combat new surprises. As we all began to understand these leadership styles in ourselves and each other, discussions transitioned to specific protege and mentor dynamics. Questions that were considered included: "What are ideas or characteristics that you have gained from this mentorship that you can pass on to others?" and "Has this mentorship changed how you approach your professional or personal lives? If not, what has it reinforced?"

To wrap up this event, we enjoyed some great tacos from Taqueria El Zamorano and our ever-popular raffle. Prizes included goodies from REI and an Ember Mug! While attendance was less than desired, the intimate group enabled all of us to connect and build new and further current relationships. Everyone enjoyed meeting in person and is looking forward to ending our year with the Mentorship Panel and End-of-Year Events!

ASCE OC Sustainability

Habitat Restoration and Bike Ride at Upper Newport Bay

ASCE OC Sustainability Committee partnered with OC Parks and held a Habitat Restoration event on Saturday, April 9, 2022, at Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve. The purpose of habitat restoration is to rehabilitate an area to recreate a functioning ecosystem. Habitat restorations bring benefits such as increasing local biodiversity and species populations, as well as improving water quality from decreased erosion.

Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve Sign

It was a bright and clear Saturday morning. Ten volunteers gathered around the OC Park Resource Specialist, Nathan, as he pointed to the yellow flowers that have taken over the trailhead right next to him. With Nathan’s help, the volunteers learned how to identify the invasive plant, mustard. The volunteers worked together as a group and tackled different areas at once. As the group worked its way through the area, the field of the brush was rid of the yellow shade that bloomed from the rain just a few months ago. After several hours of weeding, the volunteers covered almost half an acre of field and collected at least seven bags of mustard.

Stay tuned for planting and watering activities at the same location, Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve, in December or January!

Upper Newport Bay View

To encourage active transportation and to explore the beautiful trails in Orange County, the Sustainability Committee organized a bike ride event on the 30th of April to the same location, Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve. Eight riders met in front of the Barnes and Noble at the Woodbridge Shopping Center in Irvine and headed south to Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve. The ride to Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve and Interpretive Nature Center via San Diego Creek Trail is approximately 16 miles round trip. After the ride, some of the participants stayed and enjoyed the rest of Saturday morning at the Woodbridge Shopping Center for coffee and snacks.

Clothes The Deal with YMF: Professional Clothing Drive

Like many other industries, engineers saw a drastic change in their daily lives as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. A majority of us left our offices and began working almost exclusively from home, and have continued to do so till this day. One day, I had the realization that, like myself, many other Engineers must not be using their daily professional clothing as much as before. The business casual and formal attire we once relied on was now collecting dust in our closets. I did some research and found a non-profit organization called Clothes The Deal that provides free professional clothing and other services to low-income men, women, at-risk youth, and U.S. Veterans. The economic turmoil created by the pandemic made their services all that more critical for our local communities. I realized that this was a great opportunity for us, engineers, to donate our now seldom used professional clothing and help those in need.

We decided to partner with Clothes The Deal and hold a professional clothing drive during the 2022 ASCE OC Branch Awards Dinner. We promoted our clothing drive as best as we could and were optimistic leading up to the event, but nothing could have prepared us for what was to come. To our pleasant surprise, we received almost 400 individual donations during our clothing drive including suits, coats, shirts, blouses, dresses, shoes, sweaters, accessories, and more! We were blown away by the generosity of our fellow Engineers and supporters of ASCE OC. We would like to thank everyone that donated and helped spread the word about our clothing drive. You helped us make a real difference in our community.

ASCE OC University Outreach

Meet the Mentors (Water & Environmental Engineering)

On January 18, 2022, ASCE OC YMF’s University Outreach hosted a Water and Environmental Engineering panel for the fourth installment of its “Meet the Mentors” series. The “Meet the Mentors” series consists of discipline-specific panels to give students who participated in University Outreach’s Mentorship program a chance to broaden their perspective with additional mentors and allow students who did not participate in the program to learn from our awesome mentors.

JR Lagade, Ani Sarkissian, Danny Mejia, and Paul Gabot were selected for the Panel. For the first half of the event, JR provided a behind-the-scenes perspective on Black and Veatch’s Dirtwater Springs Final Design. The students learned about the scope of work and design challenges his team faced while working on the project. To solidify the students’ understanding, University Outreach tested them with a follow-up Kahoot while JR explained the correct answers. The second half of the event was a panel moderated by Janelle Gonzalez. She fielded the students’ questions to our panelists who provided valuable insight on their career paths, lessons learned, communication styles, and much more. The event was met with great feedback from our UCI, CSULB, and CSUF students and we are looking forward to future panels!
