2013 Structures Congress Pre-Conferrence Sustainability Sessions

In addition to the sustainability seminars in the main Congress proceedings (see previous post), there is a special pre-conference session of seminars being presented by members of the Structural Engineering Institute's Sustainability Committee. This interactive seminar will give attendees a hands-on experience and overview of the New Essentials that every engineer should have in their Sustainability Tool Kit.

The lineup includes:

  • Life Cycle Assessment - How to Decipher and Use LCA on a Project
Speaker: Frances Yang, P.E., LEED AP, Arup
  • Disaster Resilience - How to Avoid Unsustainable Rebuilding, Before and After Failures Due to Natural Disasters
Speakers: Matthew Comber, P.E., LEED AP BD+C, Degenkolb Engineers; Lionel Lemay, P.E., S.E., LEED AP, National Ready Mixed Concrete Association
  • Thermal Bridging - How to Recognize and Design Around Thermal Bridges
Speakers: Jim D'Aloisio, P.E., SECB, LEED AP BD+D, Klepper, Hahn & Hyatt; Russ Miller-Johnson, P.E., Engineering Ventures
  • Infrastructure - What Green Infrastructure Means, and Understanding the Resources Available to Lower the Environmental impact of Infrastructure Projects
Speaker: Marty Chorkey, P.E., ENV PV, St. Louis Mayor's Office
In each session participants will take part in interactive exercises to support the information shared in presentations. Participants will leave the seminar with a functional understanding of the tools and strategies presented and prepared to apply this knowledge on their next project.

A special ticket is required. Early Bird registration was $99 (deadline now past), advance registration $175, and onsite $250. To be added to this seminar, you must check this item's box when registering.
