    April 8, 2016 - The Engineer's Guidelines for Historic Structural Systems April 8, 2016 - The Engineer's Guidelines for Historic Structural Systems

    Date: April 8, 2016
    Time: 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    The seminar will be broken down into four main components:
    • Historic steel framing
    • Historic concrete framing
    • Historic floor systems
    • Historic curtain walls

    Each section will discuss actual built structures between 1900 and 1950 and how they differ from current practice, how they can be identified on site, how they were noted on period drawings, how they can be analyzed using current codes, and how their safety compares to modern structure.

He is certified in the practice of structural engineering by the Structural Engineering Certification Board (SECB).

    Mr. Friedman’s design experience includes the integration of modern construction into existing buildings with archaic and obsolete structural systems; repair and restoration of steel, masonry, iron, wood, and concrete structures; and the investigation of historic buildings to determine structural type and condition.

    Fees/Admission:
    Member Rate - $100
    Non-Member Rate - $125
    Student/Young Engineers Rate (Less than 10 years since BS degree) - $70
