AECOM Building in Midtown Atlanta
AECOM Building in Midtown Atlanta
One of the things that I love—yes, I said and fully mean "love"—about authoring tourATLANTA is the learning process. True, I've learned about blogging and Social Media while creating posts, but I'm referring to learning more about Atlanta...and exponentially so!

For example: I've walked by, drove by, and dined across the street from the AECOM Building countless times, but I never knew what they did until I decided to feature them on tourATLANTA. (This particular photo is of their Midtown Atlanta office, reflecting The Peachtree Building)

Not only did I learn what building this is (yet another), I learned about an incredibly interesting company. A company that employs 45,000 people in more than 125 countries—now, that's impressive. 

And what they do is even more impressive. To borrow from their website:

"AECOM is a global leader in providing fully integrated professional technical and management support services for a broad range of markets. From transportation, energy and water systems, to enhancing environments and creating new buildings and communities, our vision is to make the world a better place."

I couldn't have said it better myself. Reading about their projects is mesmerizing. Their work is relative not only to current issues, but those yet to come to fruition. And their focus is global and all-encompassing. This company is one that I will keep a very close eye on...out of excitement for how they will change the world in which we live.

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
