How structural engineering supports the renovation of significant historic statues. Gary Strand, Principal of Simpson Gumpertz & Heger, will present lessons learned and interesting stories from several varied experiences. In his 37 year career in the DMV area, he has encountered a unique list of "usual" projects which required creative structural solutions and oversight. Gary's presentation affords an opportunity to discuss some of these projects and take a closer look at case studies where engineering fundamentals were employed to restore some iconic pieces of historic fabric. Come for the technical discussion, stay for the photographs.
