Many of us admire the beauty of architecture, but have you ever thought about the engineering that makes it possible? In a time of rising construction costs, upcoming building code changes, and an urgent need to reduce embodied carbon, maximizing structural efficiency is more important than ever.
Join Harrison Glotman, P.Eng, SE, a a principle at one of North America's top engineering firms, Glotman Simpson Consulting Engineers, as he simplifies the basics of structural engineering in a friendly, approachable way. Harrison will give us a quick crash course on how we can do this, sharing insights from real projects, including the building you're in, CRAFT, and other local landmarks. He will also explore the impacts of the imminent structural code change and will highlight what to consider when fresh architectural plans land on your desk.
After the discussion, enjoy a drink with your colleagues under the retrofitted wood trusses that you will have a newfound appreciation for!
