IRVINE, CALIFORNIA – November 4, 2015 – Fuscoe Engineering, Inc. is pleased to announce that Patrick Fuscoe, PE will deliver a presentation entitled, “The True Value of Water: A Precious Resource”, for the American Institute of Architects, Orange County Chapter (AIAOC) on Thursday, November 19 at 6 p.m. at LPA, Inc.’s offices in Irvine.

The American Institute of Architects’ Committee on the Environment (COTE), which promotes sustainable design by disseminating and advancing design practices that integrate built and natural systems, is sponsoring the upcoming seminar. The True Value of Water Seminar will focus on the importance of water as well as the effects of the current drought and the economics of water in the State of California. Pat will also provide several case studies of creative designs that use less domestic water, those that allow water to be utilized more than once and designs to capture water for use.

Pat is uniquely qualified to deliver this informative presentation. He is the founder and CEO of Fuscoe Engineering, Inc. and over the course of his 35-year career, Pat has been the lead engineer on milestone assignments throughout Southern California. He initiates planning for all of Fuscoe Engineering’s larger projects, overseeing the progress of each development and offering creative direction, guidance and support.
