    This seminar will provide a brief overview on how to review, and what to look for, when reading a geotechnical report for a project. Critical items of interest that should be focused on by architects, engineers, estimators, project managers and superintendents will be highlighted. The review of techniques to ensure geotechnical recommendations are properly reflected in contract documents will also be touched upon. Presenter: Karl A. Higgins III, P.E., D.GE, Senior Vice President and Chief Engineer, ECS Mid-Atlantic, LLC

    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.

    Have you ever wondered about the realistic probability of long term concrete creep, or what types of aggregates are readily available from locally-sourced suppliers, or where to find guidance for formwork stripping? Compared to other construction materials, concrete analysis, detailing, construction, and performance require a vast array of structural engineering knowledge and construction know-how to create a structure that satisfies code, the construction documents, and the client’s needs.

    “Concrete 101” will be addressing a variety of questions submitted by the local SEA-MW membership. Questions will be answered by a panel consisting of individuals representing the design and engineering discipline, concrete mix design and admixture suppliers, and the contracting side of concrete construction. In addition to the submitted questions, there will be limited time at the end of the program for open Q&A, so come prepared with questions.

    Our panelists include: Ben Gunden, PE, Bill Lyons, Charles Mitchell (SK&A special inspector), Michael Lenkin (concrete subcontractor)
