    Much of structural engineering is helping to bring the vision of an architect to life.  Successfully achieving this vision hinges on the relationship between architect and engineer.  SEA-MW assembled a panel of experienced architects to offer insight on how structural engineers can best meet the needs of our architectural clients.  Topics of discussion will included contracts and proposals, contract documents, construction administration, and best business practices. 

    Panelists:

    • Steven Spurlock – Quinn Evans
    • Peter Baker – Ayers Saint Gross
    • John Tingley – EYP
    • Jerome Scott – JMSA Architecture

    Structural engineers have tremendous influence over the embodied carbon in building projects. We have a responsibility to learn the fundamentals of embodied carbon, start tracking it in our projects, and work collaboratively with the design and construction teams to make meaningful reductions. This is a fairly new topic in our industry, particularly in our region, and the goal of the presentation is to engage more engineers in this important topic.

    Our speaker: Michael E. Cropper, PE, LEED AP, Senior Associate Thornton Tomasetti

    Jonathan C. Shoemaker, Esq. (Lee/Shoemaker PLLC) Once the surge of excitement that comes with landing a new project passes, reality sets in: it’s time to negotiate and finalize a contract, but what provisions present the most significant risk to a structural engineer? And are those risks “real,” or merely the fantasy of insurance carriers and lawyers? This program draws upon case studies of design professionals – and “war stories” from the presenters – to identify the “do’s and don’ts” that all structural engineers should consider when negotiating a contract to minimize the assumption of unreasonable risk and to maximize profitability. This is a webinar.

    Concrete is a powerful, versatile, and economical material, but persistent modeling challenges and logistical complexity in the field leave many engineers with questions. To further explore these considerations, The Younger Members Group invites all SEA-MW members to tune into a panel discussion and get answers to some of your questions on concrete. Our speakers: Kate Towne (Silman Associates), Bill Lyons (Euclid Chemicals), Michael Lenkin, PE (Lenkin Enterprises, Inc.), Charles Mitchell, PE (SK&A Structural Engineers). The panelists represent a wide range of expertise within design and construction. SEA members are invited to submit questions on any concrete-related subject.

    You’ve all heard that each of us only get 24 hours in every day. Although many books have been written about various management styles and time management skills, this presentation will focus on how to apply those styles and skills to the practice of structural engineering. Topics will include project management, work/life balance, and strategies for the post-COVID workplace. Our speakers: Michael Zajac, PE (Simpson Gumpertz & Heger, Inc.) and Ryan Seckinger, PE (Walter P. Moore)
